Any member of Trinity Hall who has fulfilled the appropriate examinations and residence requirements may proceed at Congregation. The conferment of each degree is an act of the whole University, approved by the “Grace of the Regent House”, that is by a resolution of the governing body. Graduands are presented one by one to the Vice-Chancellor of the University, or a deputy, in the presence of the Proctors who are the elected representatives of the Regent House. Those unable to receive their degree in person can proceed in absentia (in absence) when their name will be read out and the certificate sent on after the ceremony.
Ordering degree certificates and transcripts
All students will be issued one free copy of their degree certificate upon graduation. One free copy of your academic transcript will also be posted to you within four weeks following congregation.
Additional or replacement copies can be ordered through the University’s online store.
Dress codes for alumni events
The dress code for formal dinners including Reunions, Anniversaries and the THA Cambridge Dinner is black tie/formal evening attire.
For some events, lounge suits/cocktail dresses are acceptable.
Concerts and lectures do not have a dress code unless you are attending High Table after an event. The dress code for High Table is smart.
Please always check the event webpage for confirmation of the dress code.
