Jesus College presents candidates in person to take degrees from the University of Oxford at five ceremonies each academic year; these are typically in March, twice in July, September and November. We also present candidates to take degrees in absence at any point of the year.

As with many things about Oxford, there are countless traditions and technicalities surrounding the Degree Days that may lead to confusion. We’re happy to help guide you on your journey to becoming a graduate, whether it is for your first, second or third degree!

Please choose the heading below that is most applicable to your personal situation for tailored information about graduating. If you have any further questions not covered in these guides, please do get in touch by emailing – if you have an urgent enquiry about an imminent ceremony, please telephone the Development Office on 01865 279683.
