Coronavirus information (updated 18 November 2022)

Resumption of in person graduation with guests

Congregations have resumed normal operations.

The Student Registry are now limiting Senate-House guest tickets to 2 per graduand.  Every guest entering the Senate-House requires a ticket, no matter the age of the individual.  Extra tickets may become available, however please use the Senate-House waitlist during registration to ask for any extra tickets.  We cannot guarantee that any request for extra tickets will be successful.  If you need to request tickets for an accompanying carer for a guest that needs assistance, please email Graduation.

We will keep this page updated as soon as details for each of the ceremonies become clear. In the meantime, please see the FAQs below for more information.

Graduation dates for the academic year 2022 – 2023 can be found here:  Graduation 2022- 2023

Graduating in absence

You can choose to graduate in person or in absence.  The choice can be made from your CamSIS account when you apply for your graduation.  Please be aware that St Edmund’s does not present graduands at all the congregations, some congregations will be in absence only.  However, you can choose to graduate in absence at any of the in person congregations as well.

If you choose to graduate in absence, your name will appear in the Degree List for your chosen congregation and your certificate and transcript will be mailed to you after the congregation.  Please ensure that your mailing address is up to date on your CamSIS account.

A list of all congregations can be found here.

Celebrating a degree

For those students that graduated in absence during the Covid-impacted congregations (March 2020 to April 2022) the option remains to celebrate your degree with guests in a Senate House ceremony at a future date that will be as close as possible to in-person graduation.

More information on how to register to graduate in absence can be found on the ‘registering to graduate‘ page.

Certificates and transcripts

In person graduates will receive their certificates as they leave the Senate-House.  In absence graduates will have their certificates mailed out from the College.  This may take several weeks as we hold the certificates until the transcripts have been received.  Please ensure that your mailing address is up to date on your CamSIS account.

Please note that the Tutorial Office will hold a degree certificate for 6 months and then they are securely destroyed.  Please ensure that your mailing address is up to date on your CamSIS account.  It would also help to update your External email address and have it marked as your Preferred email if you are no longer a current student.

All graduates will now have access to an official online certificate issued by the Student Registry to a secure web platform.  More information on the online certificate can be found here.

Transcripts for degrees awarded based on assessments modified as a result of COVID-19 will include brief wording explaining that the candidate undertook alternative assessments, and provide a link to a fuller explanation of the nature of the assessment, hosted on the CamData website.

Replacement copies of degree certificates or transcripts can be ordered through the Student Registry.  More information can be found on the University website.
