For me, the best thing about Emma is the
inter-year socialising - it makes it a lovely
community to be a part of

MA Graduation

Holders of the BA degree become eligible to proceed to the MA degree not less than six years after the end of their first term of residence, providing that they have held their BA degree for at least two years. This means that in 2018 those who matriculated in 2011 and have held their BA degree for at least two years, will be able to take their MAs. Emmanuel will present candidates at the congregation on 24 February 2018. We will be contacting those who are eligible by e mail before the end of 2017. The majority of people will receive their MAs at that ceremony, but you may choose another if you wish.

You are warmly invited to dinner in College the evening before the ceremony. As the ceremony takes place during term time we regret that we are not usually able to offer accommodation in College for that night.

On the day of the congregation please come to the Old Library dressed in your ceremonial attire at the time specified for a brief rehearsal. We will then process to the Senate House.

Guests (a maximum of two) will need tickets to gain admission to the Senate House. If you have not collected these already, they should be waiting for you at the Porters' Lodge.

After the ceremony graduates and their guests are invited to tea in the Old Library.


Correspondence and any queries should be directed to the Tutorial and Admissions Office (, 01223 334244).
