You must graduate in order to obtain your degree. You can do this in person or in absence, but in either case Hughes Hall must enter you for a graduation ceremony.
Cambridge has two types of graduation ceremony:
Apart from General Admission, the university does not specify particular dates for particular degrees, and each college is free to make its own arrangements. The President, Fellows and Senior Members of Hughes Hall would like to celebrate the occasion with you and your guests, so we encourage you to graduate in person on one of the seven dates when we offer a reception or refreshments. However, we recognise that this will not be possible for everyone, so other dates are available for graduation in absence.
Dates. Dates for 2017-18 are shown below. Timings for the day are confirmed at the beginning of the week of the graduation ceremony. If you are making plans in advance then please set aside the whole day for your graduation.
