Newnham presents graduands for their degrees at most Congregations.
If you are studying for your undergraduate degree you will normally receive this at General Admission. It is vital that prior to leaving Newnham you update your contact details on camSIS before submitting your application. You will need to update the following information:
- E-Mail Address: You will most likely be contacted at some point before the ceremony.
- Address: Please update your mailing address. This is vital for those graduating in absence, as we will mail your degree certificate and transcript to your current mailing address.
- Name: Please check the spelling of your name carefully, as this will appear on your degree certificate. If it is incorrect please change this and notify the Praelector’s Clerk.
Students with outstanding bills cannot proceed to a degree. It is the student’s responsibility to ensure that debts to the College are cleared, in order to receive their degree.
Degrees conferred in Person
If you wish to take your degree in person you should complete the form below and send it to the Praelector’s Clerk. You can invite up to three guests into the Senate House to watch your ceremony. There is not normally a limit on guest tickets for lunch at Newnham College.
Degrees conferred in Absence
If you are unable to attend a Congregation but wish to have your degree conferred this can be done in absence. You do not need to attend Congregation. Your name will appear on the list of graduands posted in the Old Schools arcade and published for the Congregation concerned. After the Congregation your certificate will be sent to you at the correspondence address held in CamSIS. An official degree transcript, will also be sent, normally within a month of the Congregation.
We need to receive your graduation booking three weeks before your intended congregation date: Book your graduation
