Convocation is an exciting and memorable event that marks an important rite of passage for students and their families. Commemorate this special event with official convocation memorabilia.


The university has contracted a professional photographer, GradImages, to take your photograph as you are admitted to your degree on the day of your convocation. A full-colour proof will be emailed to you after the ceremony. There is no obligation to purchase. Please contact GradImages for further information.
