Congratulations on finishing your current course of study at Wolfson! We are delighted to help you celebrate your achievement with your family and friends as you graduate.
All graduation ceremonies are held at the Sheldonian Theatre and last approximately 1¼ hrs. For ceremonies through May 2019, each graduand will automatically receive three (3) tickets for their guests. Due to building works on the Sheldonian, the University has confirmed that students attending ceremonies from July 2019 onwards will receive two (2) tickets for their guests. Information about the process for registering interest for additional tickets can be found below. If you are interested in finding out more about the ceremony in the Sheldonian, we encourage you to view the current Degree Ceremony Brochure.
On the day of your graduation there will be a number of events in College, including a photographic session, a celebratory reception and the Signing of the Graces.
To graduate you need to:
- Book a ceremony place
- Arrange your academic dress hire through a local vendor
- Book places for you and your guests at the celebratory reception (costs are listed below)
- Attend the Signing of the Graces. This is mandatory for all graduands and details of the time and location will be circulated nearer your graduation date.
Any outstanding fees must be paid in full before you can graduate. Graduands must also be in good financial standing with the College before booking places at the celebratory reception.

The Korrigan Consort is thrilled to present a spring double-bill, featuring Joanna Ward’s Hunger and Antonio Vivaldi’s Judith Triumphs.
Two tales, two women, two troubled souls. One, an artist struggling to form her identity as a creative, a woman, and a mother. One, a noblewoman with the weight of a nation on her shoulders, rebelling against the expectation of women to sacrifice. Both struggle under the thumb of patriarchs and patriarchy, with stories reaching across time.Lectures and Seminars30 - 30Apr AprImagining MadnessTuesday 30 April - 1:30pm to 5:30pm
