Dining in College, Degrees & Transcripts
The College invites alumni to use their dining rights once each academic year with a guest. Please note that there are a total of four places available at any one High Table guest night. On the first occasion the College will cover the cost of the meal and drinks for the alumnus/na, provided this is taken up within three years of leaving the College.
When can I dine?
Guest nights are normally Tuesdays, Thursdays and most alternate Sundays in Term Time. Contact us for dates (see below).
What is the cost?
The price, where chargeable, is £40pp including all drinks and College dessert (subject to availability).
What is the format of the evening?
Guest Night evenings start at 6.30pm with drinks in Broadgates Hall, followed by dinner at High Table in Hall at 7.10 pm. The evening ends after College Dessert taken in the SCR Dining Room and coffee served in Broadgates Hall. Guests usually depart at around 9.45pm.
The dress code on Sunday evening Guest Nights is black tie, and on weeknights is lounge suits or equivalent. Seating plans are often in place with different seating configurations for SCR Dessert to ensure a lively exchange for all-comers.
How to book
If you would like to dine at High Table and to use your Dining Rights, please contact James Brazier in the Development Office at email@example.com. Any queries please call 01865 276405 at least 14 working days in advance of the date you wish to dine.
The exercise of this right is at all times subject to availability, so please book in plenty of time. We do sometimes have to cancel a High Table if numbers signed up are too small. We make every effort to avoid this and notify alumni diners who have booked for that evening as soon as possible.
For Graduates and Undergraduates
Centrally produced University transcripts are now in place from the Examinations and Assessments section for all students who commenced their studies in Michaelmas Term 2007, and have completed their programme of study (course). These transcripts have been posted out to students using the 'home address' collected at Registration through Student Self Service.
Students who have received a central automated transcript from Examinations & Assessments are able to request further copies, details are available on the University website.
For students who commenced their studies prior to Michaelmas Term 2007 the Academic Office can provide a statement giving details of dates of attendance, degree course(s), examinations taken, marks achieved and degree class. This is normally accepted as sufficient evidence.
If you are a current, or former, Pembroke student and require such a document please email the Academic Office
For Visiting Students
Transcripts for visiting students are compiled by the Academic Office and Dean of Visiting Students and include reports and grades from tutors on each course undertaken during the academic year. These transcripts are sent to the students' home universities by 31 July of each year, provided all outstanding charges to the college are paid in full.
Taught course students will receive an email invitation from the University's Degree Conferrals Office towards the end of Michaelmas term of their final year with information about booking a degree ceremony. Research students will be contacted with potential degree ceremony dates once they have been granted leave to supplicate.
If you completed your studies before Trinity Term 2013, and wish to have your degrees conferred, either in person or in absentia, please contact the Academic Office for further information and to book a ceremony. Please be aware that ceremonies usually become fully booked several months in advance of the ceremony date.
The University website has further information regarding the processess and arrangements of degree ceremonies.
Those in possession of a BA or BFA may apply to receive their MA seven years after matriculating. In Oxford (as in Cambridge), the status of Master of Arts is a mark of seniority within the University which may be conferred twenty-one terms after matriculation. The Oxford MA is about reaching a new status within the University, it therefore has no subject or class.
Due to demand for spaces at ceremonies, MA are usually conferred in absentia. Pembroke, along with most other Oxford Colleges, collects a £40 fee from each MA candidate to pass on to the University. Please contact the firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
Degree certificates are issued automatically by the University following a degree ceremony, and are sent via post. Each graduate is entitled to one copy free of charge of a standard certificate for each degree which has been formally conferred on them, whether in person or in absence.
Additional copies of Degree Certificates cannot be ordered, however if your Degree Certificate is lost, stolen or damaged, you can order a replacement certificate at a cost of £30. This can be done via the University website where you can also find further information on certificates. Please note that certificates can only be applied for after your degree has been conferred.
