Taking your MA

Information about taking the MA degree

Six years and one term after matriculating, a Bachelor of Arts is entitled to take his or her Master of Arts degree, either in person or in absence, provided that two years have elapsed since the BA degree was awarded. The Praelector’s secretary will contact all those who become eligible each year in January and invite them to attend the Congregation in March.

Most newly eligible alumni return to receive their MA degrees in March. If, however, for any reason you cannot attend the March ceremony, you may proceed at another ceremony by prior arrangement.

A special dinner is arranged for the Graduands the evening before the Ceremony.

When you have confirmed with the Praelector’s Secretary that you wish to attend, 2 Senate House tickets will be available to collect from the Porter's Lodge upon your arrival.
