Degree Day


Trinity has a limited number of degree days each academic year.

Final-year students (undergraduate and postgraduate) are contacted by the University in Michaelmas term and invited to book a graduation ceremony using Oxford’s ‘eVision’ system. Research students will be invited once they receive Leave to Supplicate.

Priority for spaces is given to current graduate and undergraduate students, so historic graduands have limited options for graduating in person. However graduating in absentia is very easy and is not limited to Trinity’s four ceremonies. There is no time limit by which a degree has to be taken.

To book a place for 2020/2021, please check the dates and follow the booking procedure below. Your name will be placed on a waiting list and you will then be told whether or not you have a place. For dates from July 2020 places will not be confirmed until late February 2020 at the earliest.

Masters Degrees

Undergraduates of the College who have taken, or are taking, the BA, are eligible to take the MA (Oxon) in or after the twenty-first term from matriculation.

The cost of taking your MA is £40 and if you wish to attend the ceremony in person you will also have to hire a BA gown and hood and an MA gown and hood from a local outfitter at a cost of around £70.

Four year Undergraduate Masters degrees

Please note, former undergraduates who read for a four-year Masters degree (MChem, MPhys, MMath, etc) and who matriculated between 1993 and 1998, should check eligibility with the Development Office before booking to take the MA.
