The University Communications Office is interested to hear from graduates with an interesting story to tell about their 'student journey'.

Have you worked full-time whilst supporting a family and achieved a degree from the University? Are you the first in your family ever to have attended University? Or have you landed the job of your dreams, as a result of your achievements at the University? Whatever your story we will do our best to place it in your local newspaper and make sure you receive copies.

E-mail with your stories prior to graduation.

Photographs will be taken on the day of graduation for use in the press and University publications. We always aim to get written permission from individuals who appear in photographs, however, for general group shots this is not always possible.

If you do not want your photo taken or you think you may have been photographed and do not want the shot used, then please contact the Communications Office on (01224) 262210.

If you think your photo was taken and you would like a copy we will happily send it to you free of charge.
