General Admission to Degrees: Notice

The Vice-Chancellor gives notice that at the Congregations for General Admission to Degrees to be held on 30 June, 1 July, and 2 July 2005, tickets will be required for admission to the Senate-House. Admission tickets are issued by Colleges, and prospective graduands should apply to their Colleges for admission tickets for their personal friends whom they wish to invite to the Congregations. Other members of the University who wish to be present are also asked to obtain tickets from their Colleges.

The Congregations will be divided into separate sessions, with intervals between the presentation of candidates from successive Colleges, except that candidates from Darwin College, Wolfson College, and Clare Hall will be presented in a single session, as will candidates from Lucy Cavendish College, St Edmund's College, and Hughes Hall. Visitors may not leave the Senate-House except in the intervals between sessions.

Members of the University are required to wear academical dress in the Senate-House. Any member of the University who is not acting as an officer at the Congregations and who holds a degree of another university or degree-awarding institution may wear the academical dress appropriate to that degree; save that this provision shall not apply to those presenting for, or receiving, degrees. The days of General Admission are 'scarlet' days, and Doctors in the different Faculties are asked to wear their festal gowns. Visitors may wish to know that the University Combination Room will be open throughout the three days of General Admission for the sale of light refreshments.
