When you graduate from Cambridge your degree is conferred on you in the Senate House by the Vice-Chancellor or their deputy. This is one of the oldest ceremonies in the University, known as a Congregation. These take place at intervals through the year. Special arrangements are in place for two big ceremonies for Newnham graduands: General Admission in June or early July, and the March congregation for those eligible to receive the Cambridge MA.
Undergraduates normally receive their degrees at General Admission. The only degrees which may be taken at this Congregation are the B.A., LL.M, MCL, M.Eng, M.Sci, Vet.M.B., M.Math.
Students receiving other degrees may be presented at any Congregation other than General Admission.
