Do you have a friend or family member due to graduate?

Published: 4 June 2020

Help us mark the achievements of our graduates by sending a message of congratulation!

Unfortunately, we won’t be able to celebrate graduations on campus at the usual time. However, we still want to mark the brilliant achievements of our graduates and to do this we are holding a week of celebrations online and on social media from Mon 29 June to Friday 3 July.

Surprise your graduate

We will be making a video of messages of congratulations to graduates which we will share across our social media channels. Do you know someone who is graduating? Maybe your child, a relative, spouse or friend? Then send us a short video message for them and we will share it.

You can film your message on your phone – hold the phone horizontally as you film. Max length of video should be 30 seconds. Send it to by 20 June.

Tips for filming

  • Hold your phone horizontally or get someone to film you which might be easier - but not too far away from the camera.
  • Position yourself in the middle of the shot (so we can crop it square in the edit)
  • Hold or position the phone at roughly arm’s length so you capture a shot of your head and shoulders if filming yourself – Make sure you are not too near the screen so there is some space to add subtitles. Equally, don’t stand miles away! 
  • Keep the camera at eye level and speak directly to the camera

We look forward to seeing your video messages!
