Any student who graduated with a BA is entitled to take the Master of Arts Degree, six years and one term after they matriculated, provided that at least two years have passed since their BA Degree was awarded.
The MA can be taken in person on 23rd March 2013, or in absence on these dates.
How to apply
In January, the Degree Officer will contact all those who become eligible in the following Lent Term with details and information about to apply online - so please make sure that the College's Development Office has up-to-date details of your address.
Current students: apply via your current CamSIS Self-Service account.
Alumni: apply online via CamSIS Extended Self-Service.
