Balliol's graduation ceremonies take place on several days throughout the year, usually in the Sheldonian Theatre. Degrees must be conferred on you at a ceremony in order to collect your degree certificate, and this can be done in person or in absentia.
You will receive an invitation from the University to book online for a place on a ceremony. Look out for this email during Michaelmas Term in your final year.
You will be guaranteed a place on a ceremony in the summer following the end of your degree. If you choose to decline this invitation, but would like to attend a future ceremony, please apply to be added to a waiting list.
Once you have booked through the University, you will be contacted by Balliol to arrange ceremony tickets, lunch, gown hire and photographs. Read the Graduation FAQs for more information.
You may book a place on a ceremony after receiving your leave to supplicate. Look out for an email invitation from the University to your University email address. If you can't access this email, complete the form to attend a ceremony or register to graduate in absentia.
Please apply to graduate promptly after receiving your leave to supplicate, otherwise you won't be guaranteed a place and might have to go on a waiting list. To check available dates, please contact Aria Johnston.

If you are due to attend a ceremony in July 2016, and would like to change to a different ceremony, please submit a request to change dates.
Current students are given priority to attend degree ceremonies, while Old Members and those collecting MA degrees are given places where available. If you wish to graduate or to obtain your Oxford MA, please add your name to the waiting list.
