*'In absence' means that Fitzwilliam College will not be presenting anyone in person at the Congregation. Your certificate will be posted to you after the ceremony date.

When to apply

Undergraduate degrees are presented at the General Admission ceremony.  If you cannot attend on that date, you can apply to graduate at another date.

Postgraduate degrees are presented at the other ceremonies.  For Masters degrees, the Course Administrator at the Department will be able to advise which is the earliest date your course will be ready for graduation.  

It is not necessary to graduate at the first date after your results are confirmed.  You can postpone the graduation to any date in the future.  However, until you have graduated at a ceremony, you do not officially have the degree, and no certificate can be issued.
