Three thousand University of Lincoln students were joined by a few famous faces this week at their graduation ceremonies at Lincoln Cathedral.
Among the graduating students was veteran MP Tony Benn, who received an honorary doctorate from the University of Lincoln at the September 4 ceremony.
Tony Benn was a Labour MP for 50 years and topped several polls as the most popular politician in Britain. ITV Calendar has a video interview with him at the ceremony.
Prof. David Chiddick OBE, the former University of Lincoln Vice Chancellor, also received a Honorary Doctorate, and Nick Muntz from Siemens in Lincoln received a Chancellor’s Medal.
Professor Ieuan Owen, Deputy Vice Chancellor at the University of Lincoln, said: “All our graduates will have faced their own challenges to reach this landmark moment and there can be few more spectacular settings to recognise their accomplishments, and those of our honorary graduates, than Lincoln Cathedral.”
The University of Lincoln graduation ceremonies continue until Thursday, September 6.
