The Congregation ceremony is one of the oldest traditions in the University.
The conferment of each Degree is still an act of the whole University, approved by "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. Although Congregations are held throughout the year, the June Congregations are set aside for what is called General Admission to Degrees, at which most undergraduates proceed to their first Degrees at the end of their final term.
