    You can put Oxon in brackets after you graduate from Oxford to show everyone where you've been. I first realised in the Rumpole books where it showed his name as

    Oxon is short for Oxfordshire, so I presume it comes from that.

    I heard from a (usually reliable) source that three years after graduating from Cambridge your degree is made a Master's automatically. True or balls? Help!

    From Trinity College site -

    "Members of the College who are Cambridge Bachelors of Arts can become Masters of Arts six years after the end of their first term of residence, provided that two years have elapsed since they took the B.A. degree. They should write to the Junior Bursar's Clerk, College, Office, Trinity College, Cambridge, CB2 1TQ, normally giving at least four weeks' notice, saying whether they wish to take the degree in person or in absence, and she will send full details. "
