Graduation Tickets

For our class of 2019, Graduation will take place over two days on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 July.

We are delighted to invite* you to attend Graduation on Wednesday 24 and Thursday 25 July 2019.

Graduating in the magnificent surroundings of Lincoln Cathedral is a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience, and we know you’ll want to be a part of it.

We’ll make sure you get to celebrate in style with hundreds of other BGU students, members of staff and, of course, your family and friends. Ceremonies will take please on both days at 10:15am and 2:30pm along with celebrations on campus throughout the day.

Which ceremony you attend depends on which course you have studied. Please see our Ceremony Schedule for more details.

We look forward to seeing you and hope you have an excellent Graduation day!

*Your invitation is subject to successful completion of your programme and will be confirmed once your final result has been agreed by the Board of Examiners and you have completed your degree successfully.

Booking Information

Please click here to log on to the Ede and Ravenscoft site to order your ceremony tickets, gown and any photographs you may require.

Please note you can order you gowns when purchasing tickets – these will not be available until Wednesday 17 April.

The booking link will be live from Wednesday 17 April until Friday 17 May.

You must book your graduation tickets by the end of Friday 17 May, even if you think you might not pass the course. Gowns can be booked at a later stage no later than 21 days before the ceremony.

Ceremony and Tickets

Guest tickets for the ceremonies in the Cathedral are £20. These include strawberries and a glass of Prosecco or a soft option of your choice for you and your ticket paying guests. This will be available at Bishop Grosseteste campus from 11:00am – 6:00pm. There is no charge for graduands and you will also receive strawberries and a glass of Prosecco.

Due to the limited number of seats available in the Cathedral, we are only able to initially offer each student three guest tickets.* Registration to attend and book tickets commences on Wednesday 17 April until Friday 17 May.

The design of the Cathedral might mean that you may not be able to see all the proceedings all of the time from where you are sitting, so large visual screens are placed in the Cathedral to allow guests a clear view, even from the back of the Nave. It is considered that the ceremony is not suitable for young children. If you are bringing children to the ceremony, we politely ask that you try to keep them quiet and seated throughout the ceremony, in respect of this special day.

Please note that due to health and safety regulations children over 12 months old will require their own ticket and will not be able to sit on laps. The graduation ceremony will last approximately one hour.

In addition to the ceremonies in the Cathedral, there will be a link on the BGU Graduation web page to live streaming, so that ceremonies can be viewed online all over world!

*In the very unlikely event of 100% take up on the initial registration the third ticket purchased will be refunded and the surplus tickets re offered on a first come first served basis.

Additional Tickets

Availability of additional tickets cannot be guaranteed or confirmed until all the applications have been processed. We will email your student account on Wednesday 22rd May with details of availability and how to apply.  The website goes live on Friday 24th May. Subject to availability, this system will issue available extra tickets on a first come first serve basis.

Please note: All tickets will be included in your information packs and these will be posted to your home address during the second week of July, you do not need to print anything off.

PLEASE NOTE:

Official invitations will be sent to your home address for Wednesday 17 April. Booking and registration will not be live until you have received it so you will not be able to book tickets at present! Please contact the office if you do not receive your invitation or if you have changed address.

Information about extra tickets will be emailed to you and posted on this website on Wednesday 22 May – you will not be able to apply for extra tickets unless you have already registered and this will not be live to do so until Friday 24 May.

Please note the Graduation Office will be closed from Friday 19 April and will reopen at 8.30am on Tuesday 23 April.  You can still book your tickets via the link when live.

To continue our legacy of supporting students, any profit from the events will be paid directly into the BGU Foundation Fund. The fund supports a range of projects that clearly demonstrate enrichment during your time at the University and after graduation. It focuses on projects that cannot be resourced through the University’s main funds. A number of small grants are available to assist with voluntary work or other innovative, creative, charitable or community based projects both here in the UK or overseas.
