Finished? Degree Days

BA Days

Keble is allocated 100 places on a special degree day ceremony held each year in May after finalists have gone down. This enables a large part of the year group to graduate as a group and to celebrate their achievement with their families and friends.

The date for 2018 Finalists is Saturday 4 May 2019.

The date for 2019 Finalists is Saturday 2 May 2020.

Keble Degree Days throughout the year

If you are a current student you will be sent an invitation to graduate before your course ends, or as soon as you are given leave to supplicate (DPhil students).

If you have already finished your degree you should complete the form for historic graduands and send it to with your preferred date and we will contact you about availability as soon as it is known. Dates for the next year are given below. All ceremonies are at 11.00 am unless otherwise stated.

13  July 2019
27 July 2019
2 November 2019
29 February 2020

Please note that if you apply for a place at a ceremony there is no guarantee that you will be able to graduate on that day.  You may not be notified of the outcome for some time, until the deadline for invited graduands has passed, and the University will send an email confirmation.

MA Degrees

As there is a severe shortage of degree ceremony places throughout the year, Alumni are encouraged to take their MA in absentia.   If you would like to take your MA either in person or in absentia, you should complete the form for historic graduands. There is a fee of £40 payable to the University and £10 to the College for an MA conferral.

NB You are only eligible to take an MA if your first degree was a BA.

Degree Certificates

Certificates are prepared by the University Degree Office and can be collected from the Porters' Lodge immediately after the ceremony.

Certificates will be posted to those graduating in absentia.
