Award ceremony

Award ceremony

The Department's annual Award Ceremony takes place at the Sheldonian Theatre in the spring. The event marks students' completion of the Department's non-matriculated award-bearing courses. Students travel from around the world to attend the ceremony. 

Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, the 2021 Ceremony has been cancelled. The following year's date is set at Wednesday 23 March 2022.

Matriculated students (receiving Master's and DPhils) attend a graduation ceremony with their college instead. Please contact your College Administrator for further details about your college graduation ceremony.
