Continuing Education Award Ceremony
Annual ceremony at the Sheldonian Theatre
For students who complete non-matriculated award-bearing courses
The Department's annual Award Ceremony takes place at the Sheldonian Theatre in the spring. The event marks students' completion of the Department's non-matriculated award-bearing courses. Students travel from around the world to attend the ceremony.
Our March 2023 ceremony was for those who successfully completed their studies in 2022. Details of our next ceremony will be announced in due course.
Matriculated students (receiving Master's and DPhils) attend a graduation ceremony with their college instead. Please contact your College Administrator for further details about your college graduation ceremony.
You can get an idea what the annual award ceremony is like by watching the short online videos listed below:
- A short film consisting of interviews with four 2014 award recipients on the experience of completing their courses and receiving their awards.
- Hear actress and alumna Joanne Pearce deliver the 2014 closing remarks
- See Professor Sally Mapstone, former Pro-Vice-Chancellor for Education, welcome the assembly to the Sheldonian Theatre
Former students of the Department have continued studies through the University of Oxford, achieving higher degrees, or have gone on to pursue careers connected to courses they have studies at the Department. You can read some student spotlights here.
