Help after graduation

After graduation, the Alumni and Development Office is usually the best point of contact within the College for any administrative queries. Below are some answers to frequently asked questions.

Alumni contact details

Please note that the information on the alumni database will be used for inviting you to events, including the MA ceremony and dinner mentioned below, so if you haven't updated your details for a while, please do so using the Alumni records update form. You can read our data protection statement here.

We are happy to try and help Members reconnect with each other, and occasionally receive requests from alumni who wish to contact their peers. In line with GDPR, we will never divulge contact details without first contacting the person concerned to obtain their express permission.


Certificates and transcripts

Degree certificates and transcripts are obtained through the University Student Registry. If you would like a letter simply confirming that you were a student at St Catharine's, please contact the Tutorial Office


Verification of attendance

The Alumni and Development Office cannot provide references for academic ventures or employment. However, in certain circumstances we are able to verify a student's attendance at the College by providing a letter to this effect. For example, upon request we issue verification letters for those wishing to join the Oxford and Cambridge Club.


Taking up the MA

Please see this webpage for information on MA Graduation (six years and one term after matriculation).
