FAQ - BEFORE GRADUATION

We recommend you also read the VU graduation page for additional information about the day.

How many guest tickets can I purchase? 

The first round of guest tickets will be limited to 3 per graduate. If additional tickets are avilable for your ceremony, you will be notified via email approximately 2 weeks prior to the ceremony.  

Are there any free guest tickets? 

No, guest tickets are $42 each. The only exception is children under 6 years old can enter for free if they can sit with a ticket-holder.

What is a Portrait Session and what does it cover?

A Portrait Session is the time you spend with our professional photographer. Your photographer will take a range of different shots and poses of the graduate by themselves, plus extra shots with family and friends.

Why should I pre-book my portrait session?

Pre-booking online saves time. Simply print or screenshot your booking confirmation and present at our photography studios to have your photos taken.

Do I get a specific appointment time when I book my portrait session?

No. Due to time constraints, we can’t book in a specific time for your sitting. We suggest pre-booking online to save time, but if you choose to book on the day make sure you arrive as early as possible to register at our customer service desk and have your studio portraits taken.  Please note that photography studios are open 2 hours prior to your ceremony and we are happy to provide sample testamurs so you can have your photos taken prior to the ceremony.

Can I get my photos taken before/after the ceremony?

Our studios are available before and after the ceremony. You can proceed to the photography area as soon as you have your gown, and immediately after the ceremony. Our studios close (temporarily) strictly 45 minutes before the ceremony commences.

Do I need to make a booking to get my stage photographs?

No. We take a photograph of every single graduate. A photo of every graduate is available to view and purchase immediately after the ceremony. To save time on the day, order through our the 'Pre-book Stage Image' button on the website.

When do I receive my pre-booked stage image or video? 

These items will be available to collect immediately after the ceremony. If you forget to collect these items, we will need to charge a postage fee to send the items after graduation.
