Third parties

In order to manage the graduation events, we need to process your personal data and share this with third parties.

We provide data to Ede and Ravenscroft, our gown hire company, regarding students eligible for graduation and the award they are receiving or expected to receive. This is for the purpose of simplifying the gown hire process for our students and graduates.

We provide names of all graduating students to Campus Clothing to print names on their “Class of" products.

If you have any further questions, please contact us.
