The photograph that you provide during registration will be added to your student record and used for producing your student card.  Remember when you are submitting your photograph that this is a form of ID, and you can be asked to show this at anytime on campus. We recommend that you send us a passport style photograph - but remember to smile! 

We review all photographs that are submitted - if you submit a photograph that does not meet our guidelines, we will reject your photograph and send an email to your personal email address asking you to resubmit.

Please note that due to the current coronavirus pandemic and staff working remotely, we are unable to issue student cards at this time.  

What kind of photograph should I submit?
  • Front facing portrait style
  • Full colour
  • Only you in the photograph
  • Free of headwear, unless normally worn for religious reasons
  • No excessive filters (snapchat/Instagram) - you will be asked to resubmit
  • No sunglasses, headphones or hats
  • Plain light coloured background (dark backgrounds affect photo quality on your card)
  • JPG file format
How do I submit my photo?
  • You should submit a photograph during the online registration process
  • Email a JPG photograph to registration@gcu.ac.uk  

If you email your photograph, you need to include your student ID so that we can upload your photograph to your record.
