Subject to future Covid-19 restrictions, we are hoping to deliver an in-person graduation and we are delighted to invite* you to attend your Graduation on Tuesday 26th July 2022.

Graduation will take place on both days at Lincoln Cathedral, however we cannot confirm the times of your graduation until February 2022. Celebrations will also take place on campus. Please note, when you book tickets for your Graduation, the ceremony times will not be correct until February 2022. 

The wearing of academic dress will not be mandatory, however you will have the opportunity to pay to hire your own gown, hood and cap (subject to availability). An official photographer will be on campus offering a range of products. This will include an option for graduates to have their photograph taken in full academic dress, without incurring the hire charge, whether they attend the ceremony at the Cathedral, or not.

Please note: you are able to register and book tickets from Monday (22nd November) at 9am. You must register to attend and purchase your guest tickets you require before Sunday 12th December 2021.  You will not be able to register your attendance to attend graduation after Sunday 12th December 2021.

Please note: the date and time allocated when you register is for booking purposes only and is irrelevant at this stage. You will receive final confirmation of your graduation day and time in February 2022, and this will be updated on your booking information.

Should students show any signs and symptoms of Covid we would greatly appreciate you do not attend the Graduation Ceremony
