All eligible and provisionally eligible students will have their full names, student numbers, awards of study (but not classification) and ceremony details sent to William Northam via encrypted email. This process occurs to speed up the booking process for robes and photography, ensuring that William Northam have the correct robe details for graduates. This is carried out under the legal basis of legitimate interest. If you don’t want your details sent to William Northam you will need to contact before you receive the graduation invitation to request this. You can also email the same address after you have received your invitation to request to have your details removed.

There will be a University photographer present at the event and any photographs taken may appear in University printed publications, our website and social media for publicity and marketing. If you do not want your photograph taken please let the photographer know.
