Feature in our new Graduation video

Do you remember sitting in your graduation ceremony – gowned up, waiting to accept your degree? How did you feel  nervous, excited, proud?  

This summer, we're creating a new short film to be shown to students and their families at the start of their graduation ceremony. Our film, "Your World Awaits", celebrates what it's like to be a Nottingham graduate and the exciting world of possibilities that awaits our students as they step into the next chapter of their lives... which is where you come in.

We're looking for short video clips from alumni like you, that help us show how amazing life post University actually is - and that friendships, relationships and skills forged here can all get better with time.    

Be part of our film – upload a short video clip

Share a short 10 - 15 second video clip that celebrates what University means to you today. 

We don't expect you film something unless you want to. Existing clips of moments in life that matter to you are great.    

  • Do you have video of you and your Uni friends together that you could share?    
  • Could you share a video selfie of you in your workplace?  
  • Any footage of an award, new job, qualification or promotion? 
  • Are you enjoying life in a new city or location? Or are you off travelling somewhere exciting and exotic? 
  • Have you married a fellow Nottingham graduate – or started a family? We love engagement / wedding clips.   
  • Is there an old Uni hoody lurking somewhere in your wardrobe? Time to get it out!

Some guidance to help you: 

  • We want to see you in your clip – just being you! If you are filming something for us - smile and have fun. Think of this as a video selfie.  
  • Try to pick a landscape video if you can. 
  • Phone / ipad footage is fine – though please check you have the highest quality settings you can.  
  • Don't worry about sound.  
  • Upload your video clip using the form below.

How we will use your video clip

Please only upload your video clip if you are happy for it to be used (in full or any part as edited by us) as part of our new University of Nottingham Graduation video. If your clip shows anyone else, please ensure you have their express permission to share this content with us. Your clip will be shared with our trusted partner Fat Free Media who are working with us to develop the Graduation video. Neither of us will use your clip for any other purpose and will ensure it is removed from our systems by 31/7/2018. The Graduation video (in full and shortened version) will be shown at graduation ceremonies and potentially shared via other channels such as social media and website. For more details, please see our full privacy notice.

Uploading a clip does not guarantee it will be used in the Graduation video. If we do use your clip we will contact you by 1/8/2018 to inform you how long we will retain the video for.

On behalf of future Nottingham graduates – thank you for participating.
