The ceremony at which you graduate depends on the degree subjects you have been studying. In the case of joint degrees, your subjects are listed in alphabetical order in your student record, and you will graduate with the School of the first subject e.g. if you are studying for an MA Honours in International Relations and Modern History, you will graduate with the School of International Relations.

Undergraduate degrees will be conferred alongside postgraduate degrees within the same School.
