You have been invited by email to book your degree ceremony, and if you would like to do so please fill out the form below.

Oxford degrees are not automatically conferred at the end of the course, but by graduating through a degree ceremony. You can choose to graduate in person or in absence and are invited to attend a ceremony on the days listed in the form below. These ceremonies have been ring-fenced specifically for students who had their ceremonies postponed between May 2020 and May 2021.

Alternatively, other ceremonies are also being scheduled for 2021 finalists, and once the invitation window closes on 15 July these may have space available. These ceremonies are also listed in the form below and you can be added to the waiting list for one of these ceremonies. We will let you know if there is space on these after the invitation period has closed.

As you might imagine, there is a significant backlog of students and finalists who are waiting to have a ceremony. More ceremonies are planned from 2022 onwards. We would encourage you to attend a ceremony in 2021 if you can, however in the event that you are unable to secure a place there may be further opportunities to attend a ceremony in the first half of 2022.

It you would prefer not to wait for a ceremony, you have the option to have your degree conferred in absentia. You can also order a degree confirmation letter in advance of your ceremony from the University’s Degree Conferrals Office.

In exceptional circumstances, the University reserves the right to change the time of your ceremony on your chosen day or place restrictions on guest attendance. Similarly, in the event that there are substantial remaining social distancing requirements or increased levels of Government restrictions, the ceremonies may have to be postponed.

If you graduate in person you will receive your certificate on the day. If you graduate in absence your certificate will be posted to you after the ceremony.

Please be aware that by attending a degree ceremony at the University of Oxford, as well as taking part in other events relating to your graduation, such as at your college, you and your guests may be captured in photography or film footage. Filming of the ceremony will be streamed live on the University of Oxford’s webpages and made available in a DVD or digital download after the Ceremony.

If you have any questions, please see the FAQs here.

Please note that you may not be permitted to graduate if you have any debts or dues outstanding to the University.
