Photographs and videos during graduation sessions

Information about photographs and video recordings during graduation sessions (degree programmes and PhDs).

For their graduation sessions, students and PhD students of all university campuses can freely choose any professional or amateur photographer/video camera operator to record the event.

The photographer/video camera operator chosen by students and PhD students are among the guests of the graduation session and they must:

  • carefully follow the general instructions of the respective university unit;
  • perform his/her service without causing any disturbance to the graduation session and other academic activities, showing respect for other people.     

The University of Bologna does not certify photographers/video camera operators for graduation sessions any longer (the previous regulation has been abolished).

Any inappropriate behaviour will be reported to university staff and/or to the President of the graduation board.
