Matriculation 2019

The Matriculation Ceremony has now established itself as a tradition at BGU and is an annual feature on the University’s calendar, serving as an opportunity to officially welcome newly enrolled students to the BGU family.

Matriculation is the term used to describe students’ formal entry into the University and is described in the University’s Regulations as “the act of placing a student’s name upon the matricula or roll of members of the University.”

This year’s Matriculation Ceremony will take place on Tuesday 8 October 2019 at 3.00pm.


Matriculation Information

The Venue

Because of our roots in the Diocese of Lincoln and our links with Lincoln Cathedral, the ceremony is held in the magnificent setting of Lincoln Cathedral. For most students, the next time they attend a major event in their life and that of the University in Lincoln Cathedral will be at their graduation.

Ceremony Information

Unless your schools are making special arrangements for you to meet up before the ceremony, we are asking all first year students to make their way to the Cathedral and be seated no later than 2.30pm.

Live Streaming

The ceremony is live streamed and can be accessed from the BGU website here.

Student Dress

Students are asked to dress smartly and will be provided with undergraduate and postgraduate gowns free of charge. It is mandatory to wear these at this formal event.

Postgraduate and Masters students may wear their full academic dress if they wish, at a special one off price for this event.

The Ceremony

All newly enrolled students must be seated by 2.30pm then the ceremony starts with entry of the procession. The Dean of Lincoln welcomes students to the Cathedral and the Matriculation Roll is formally endorsed by the Registrar on behalf of the University. The Vice-Chancellor will admit the students to the University and invites all students to ‘share the hand of friendship’ and all shake hands with each other. This is followed by speeches from the Vice Chancellor, Students’ Union President, and Dean of Chapel and Chaplain. Every student will be presented with a Matriculation badge during the ceremony.

Exit from the Cathedral

Students leave the Cathedral as directed by University marshals and exit via the Great West doors to the University Samba Band and the Town Crier. A traditional group photograph of Matriculating Students will be taken outside the Cathedral straight after the ceremony. The Academic Procession will lead back to campus via Exchequergate.

Photography

The Cathedral has a policy of no photography during the ceremony, this includes the use of digital and video cameras and mobile phones. We ask all students, staff and guests to respect the Cathedral policy.

Guests
Because of the number of students attending and limited seating in the Cathedral we cannot guarantee to accommodate guests at the Matriculation Ceremony, however, if you have guests wishing to attend they can wait outside the Cathedral and if seats are available once students are seated they will be allowed entry.

Students’ Union Matriculation Ball

A Matriculation Ball will take place on the evening of the ceremony at 8.00pm.  Further details are available from the BGU Students’ Union.
