Time to Celebrate

Each year, several thousand students become graduates of the University of Lincoln at our spectacular graduation ceremonies, held in the magnificent Lincoln Cathedral. The ceremonies are the most important events in the University's calendar, marking the culmination of many years of hard work and dedication from our students, and giving family, friends, and staff at the University the opportunity to congratulate our new graduates and celebrate their achievements.

When you graduate from the University of Lincoln you will become part of our global alumni community, which is made up of more than 95,000 graduates from across 135 countries. As a graduate of the University, you can access a wide range of benefits and services wherever you are in the world.

Graduation Ceremonies 2024

The University of Lincoln's next graduation ceremonies will take place at Lincoln Cathedral between Tuesday 16th and Thursday 18th April 2024. 

To be eligible to attend the April 2024 graduations, a student must have:

  • An award conferred by a University Board of Examiners or End Point Assessor between 1st August 2023 and 1st March 2024. If your award is conferred after this date, you will not be eligible to attend the above ceremonies and will instead be automatically invited to attend the next available ceremony in September 2024.   

Registering for April 2024 Graduation

Specific times and dates for each ceremony are still being determined based on the number of eligible students. Once these have been finalised, eligible students will be emailed an invitation to register for the relevant ceremony for your programme of study.

Invitations to register for graduation in April 2024 will be sent via email in mid-December 2023. Registration indicates your intention to attend graduation but is subject to eligibility.

Each student who registers for graduation is eligible for two complimentary guest tickets. Once registration closes in early March 2024 for our April ceremonies, any remaining tickets will be offered for sale. All registered students will be emailed regarding extra ticket availability in advance of them going on sale. Please note, once all tickets are allocated or sold, we will not be able to accommodate further guests due to the capacity of the venue. All guests must have a valid ticket in order to attend the ceremony.
