Undergraduate candidates are usually admitted at the General Admission ceremony held in June of each year.

Degrees can, however, be conferred at any of the Congregations (degree ceremonies), which are held about three times a term and once in the Long Vacation, usually on a Saturday.

Undergraduates usually proceed to the B.A. Degree, their first degree in most cases, as soon as they are qualified to do so. However, if a student intends to be a candidate for the M.Eng, M.Math. or M.Sci. Degree, they must defer taking the B.A. Degree until the end of their fourth year.


Those completing a postgraduate degree will be advised by the Student Registry when they can go ahead with arranging a graduation date, they will also be contacted by the Graduate Administrator at Trinity Hall. Graduation ceremonies take place at the Senate House on certain Saturdays throughout the year and students may proceed either in person or in absentia.

Alumni: The Cambridge MA

As a Bachelor of Arts, a student may be admitted as a Master of Arts not less than six years from the end of your first term of residence if two years have elapsed since they were admitted as a Bachelor of Arts. The Degree of Master of Arts denotes a person's standing in the University, and gives admission to membership of the Senate; it does not depend upon further study, or residence, or payment of a fee. Further details are available from the Tutorial Administrator.

The MA Degree Ceremony is organised by the Alumni & Development Office.
