    What do these mean when written in brackets after a degree? For example BA (Cantab) or LLB (Lond) or BA (Oxon)????? I think it is to do with which Uni your degree is from but which abreviations are for which Unis????? :confused:

    Cantabrigiensis, rather, the adjectival form of the noun Cantabrigia.

    Or rather, the genitive form.

    The genitive case is the adjectival case. That being said, the -ensi suffix clearly indicates that this is an adjective, rather than a noun; although, of course, it is still in the genitive case.
