Staff Involvement in Graduation
Graduation reflects not just the pride we have in the academic achievements of our students, but is also the culmination of the efforts of all University staff.
We have a variety of volunteer roles for any staff who would like to be involved in welcoming our students and their families to Lancaster University for our graduation ceremonies:
- Postgraduate Graduation on Wednesday 11th December 2013
- Undergraduate Graduation between 14 and 18 July 2014
If you would like to contribute to this day of celebration, please contact the Ceremonies and Events Team
All colleagues (academic and non-academic) who wish to attend graduation ceremonies should join the academic procession. The ceremonies are important occasions for graduands and their families, who like to see their mentors on the platform.
Full academic dress is worn by degree holders taking part in the processions. If you do not have your own academic dress, robes will be hired for you to wear on the day, free of charge. A bachelor gown will be hired for non-degree holders.
To book your place in the procession:
1) Choose which ceremonies you would like to attend from the graduation timetable below
- Postgraduate graduation ceremonies timetable
- Undergraduate graduation ceremonies timetable (released in Spring)
Our ceremonies are extremely busy and we are usually only able to offer two guest tickets to each graduating student. Spare guest tickets for staff are rarely available, as all colleagues have the opportunity to attend ceremonies as part of an academic procession.
Members of the academic procession can enquire via the Ceremonies and Events Team regarding the availability of a ticket for a guest.
All ceremonies are transmitted live into a nearby venue for which no ticket is required. Ceremonies can also be viewed live from the University homepage.
