Term-time photography

The term-time photography sessions are held twice a year. They are relaxed sessions which provide an opportunity for students who did not, or cannot, attend a graduation ceremony, or did not have their photos taken at a recent ceremony, to have official graduation photographs taken in academic dress.

You may have your photographs taken on your own or with friends and family members, and once you have booked your place you will be allocated a time slot for the session. Refreshments will be available on the day for those in attendance.

There is an administrative charge of £10 for this event and gown hire is free of charge.

The next Term-time photography session will take place on Monday 30 March 2020.

Please note, to be eligible for this event you will need to have your degree ratified by 29 March 2020.

Bookings will open at 10am on Monday 24th February 2020, to book your place at the session please visit the estore. Bookings close at 5pm on Monday 16th March 2020.
