Dates of Congregations

In person ceremonies will resume from June 2021 onwards, but without guests attending the Senate House or the College. Due to the current restrictions the usual hosting arrangements for lunch on the day of the ceremony remain suspended at this time. We will update this webpage with further information as it becomes available. Thank you for your patience during this difficult time.

Emmanuel will be presenting candidates on the following dates in 2020-21:

  • Saturday 1 May 2021(in absence only)
  • Saturday 22 May 2021(in absence only)
  • Friday 23 July 2021(in person, no guests)


  • Friday 22 or Saturday 23 October 2021*
  • Saturday 29 January 2022
  • Saturday 26 February 2022
  • Saturday 30 April 2022
  • Saturday 21 May 2022
  • Friday 22 July 2022

* Usual practice is for this ceremony to take place on Saturday 23 October 2021. However, in the event of increased demand for graduation from across the University, the ceremony may take place across two days and Emmanuel would then be scheduled to present graduands on the first day only, Friday 22 October. We will confirm this nearer the time.

Candidates may proceed in absence on other dates.
