Photography and merchandise

Guests are welcome to bring their cameras to capture your special moment during the ceremony, but we do ask that they make sure they are not obscuring the view of other guests.

Will graduates be photographed as they cross the stage? 

All students will be photographed as they cross the stage and doff their cap towards the Chancellor/Vice Chancellor.  

Your onstage photos will be available to view and purchase after your ceremony via email.

You are also able to visit one of Graduation Attire's photo kiosks to have your onstage photo printed on the day.

We will also be teaming up with Stage Clip, who will be filming your big moment and will create a personalised video clip of you crossing the stage. These will be available after the ceremonies, directly from Stage Clip.

Will the ceremony be live-streamed?

Yes, we will be filming the event which will be available as a live stream on the University's Facebook page.

You are not permitted to hire your own video company to film the ceremony on your behalf.

Will professional photography be available?

Yes. You are able to pre-book your photography packages with Graduation Attire during your gown booking process via the following link from 19th March: 

Graduation Attire Gown and Photography.

You are able to log back in at any time to add any extra photography packages,

If you have not pre-booked, you are still able to book photography on the day.  Please visit the Graduation Attire photography team on the day of your ceremony and they will be happy to assist,

Please note: Should you require 7 people or more in your photos, there will be a further £25.00 to allow for the additional editing required.

When will I receive my professional photographs?

After the graduation period has finished, a link for you to select the shots you want edited will be sent within 6-8 days.

Photos will be finalised by the editor and will be sent out up to 6-8 weeks after your ceremony.

Digital-only images will be sent to you via email with a download link.

You will be emailed an additional link to reorder prints of all poses that were taken on the day either physically or digitally.
