Information supplied by students on their graduation application form, either via the Portal or in a paper application form, will be used for the purposes of processing their application for attendance at their ceremony and the purchase of guest tickets for that ceremony. We will also use the data for statistical purposes. We will share information with Student Administration, the Exams Team and the student's school and will pass names only to the external company which produces "Class of..." memorabilia T-shirts. Information supplied may be held on a computer based system that is maintained in accordance with the provisions of the Data Protection Act 1998.
We will not discuss the details of an individual's graduation with anyone else (relative, friend etc) unless given written permission to do so by the student concerned.
Graduands and their guests should be aware that the graduation ceremonies are regarded as public events. Name and qualifications, but not degree classifications, will be published in the proceedings brochure. Audio and visual images of the ceremony are publicly available via the internet live broadcast. Professional photographers may be in attendance throughout the entirety of the graduation celebrations and any photographs may be used in future publications.
