Photography and merchandise

On graduation day, photography is provided by Ede & Ravenscroft, the official photographer of the University.

There are a variety of photography pack options available. For more details please visit the Ede & Ravenscroft website.

Photography studios will be available on the day in Campus Central. Queues can be long, so we advise you to have your photographs taken before your ceremony if time allows.

Award photographs

In addition to the photography studios on the day, each graduate will have their photo taken while crossing the stage. These photographs can be viewed after the ceremony.
