Photo Id - Introduction

Requirements for student ID card photos

You can upload your photo from any computer, phone or mobile device with Internet access.

We need a good quality passport style photo which must meet the following criteria:

  1. The photo should be of you alone
  2. Colour, clear with good contrast
  3. Head and shoulders only
  4. Full face, facing front
  5. No glasses unless you normally wear them
  6. No hats or headwear except when worn for religious reasons and only if the full facial features are clearly visible
  7. At least 300px x 300px in size, which is approximately 3cm x 3cm at a resolution of 250 px/inch

Photos should be similar in nature to a passport photo and will remain on your ID card for the duration of your course. Uploading a photo that does not meet the above criteria or is not a photo of you may be classed as defacing your card and you could be liable for the cost of a replacement card which is currently £10.
