Now officially a Master of Mathematics

Back in March I wrote that I’m a Master of Mathematics, they tell me. The award from the University of Cambridge took longer than I originally expected, but at last on Saturday I graduated as MMath. As I am now living back only an hour’s drive from Cambridge, I decided to take the degree in person, and give my wife a chance to taste the university atmosphere. The ceremony in the Senate House was conducted in Latin, with everyone in full academic dress. It was followed, for the group of us from Clare College, by a formal lunch in the college hall which was reminiscent of Harry Potter and Hogwarts. All this was on a fine sunny day, nice enough to tempt some people on to the river in punts. So here I am in my robes on the college bridge:

  1. I’m impressed, Peter! I don’t think I even knew that you were studying for another degree, but well done – and if you’re going to be a Master of anything it’s particularly masterful to be a Master of Mathematics, I think!
