Please note

All Congregation ceremonies after this month for the rest of this academic year are postponed. We will be back in contact as soon as we have any solid arrangements for new dates.

Once the Board of Graduate Studies have informed you that you have been approved for your degree, you are invited to sign up for any of Clare Hall’s 2019 - 2020 or 2020 - 2021 Graduation Dates:

24 October 2020

30 January 2021

27 March 2021

You can do so by filling out the Graduation Form, which you can get from the Tutorial Office

In Person/In Absentia

You have the option to graduate in person or in absentia. If you choose to graduate in absentia, you will not be able to return at a later date to graduate in person.

Congregation Senate House

The exact timings of the ceremony will be circulated to graduands by Monday morning preceding the Saturday congregation. Clare Hall tends to be timetabled in the afternoon, but this can change.  

Guest Tickets

You can request up to three guest tickets, free of charge, for the congregation.

Guest Rooms

If you require a room overnight for your guests, please complete our accommodation enquiry form

Graduation Dinner

See your letter from the Tutorial Administrator for arrangements for the Graduation dinner which takes place the night before Graduation. Please bring your gown to the dinner. The Praelector will do a short rehearsal with all graduands. Please note that there is a limit of 5 guests per graduand at the dinners, subject to space. This applies to all graduation dinners except the large July graduation. In July, the limit is 3 guests per graduand, subject to space.
