Frequently Asked Questions

If you have a question which is not answered here please contact us


Ordering is easy via this site. Please select an institution, then pick from our great range of products. Don't forget the date and time of your ceremony. You will not be able to order without it! You can also order from our sales stand on the day of your graduation or by calling us on 0844 324 6784.

Do I have to order on the day, or can I order after the event?

You can order your items on the day of graduation at our sales stand. If the stand is very busy you can call our office and order over the phone or on our website www.iamagraduate.com. It is never too late to order.

Where do I add the graduates name and Ceremony details when I am ordering?

We have designed the site so you add your personal details within the secure shopping cart area. This will include ceremony details.

How long will it take before I get my order?

We aim to delivery your items to you as soon as possible. Due to the technical team having to edit lots of footage, there is no super fast turnaround time. Our footage has to be edited and mastered ready to be duplicated for DVD/Blu-ray or USB memory stick. This process does take time. Our photographic products are slightly faster to produce but are mainly dispatched at the same time as your DVD/Blu-ray/USB to keep the shipping costs down for the consumer. The average dispatch time for most items is between 4 - 6 weeks from the end of your graduation week however, please allow up to 8 weeks for dispatch of any Professionally Mastered products

Can I order on the day, by phone or by post?

All three. We have a large sales stand at each University shown on our site. At this stand you can see product samples, speak to our team & order items face to face. You can also phone 0844 324 6784 or post your order to I am a Graduate.com, First Sight Media, Suites 3-4 Wesley House, Ventura Park, Broadshires Way, Carterton, Oxfordshire OX18 1AD

Who can I call if I want to chase / change an order?

These are available ONLY on the day of the ceremony and ONLY from the sales stand. The 'Full Production' product is either a DVD, Blu-ray or USB memory stick (institution depending), which features your entire ceremony but also footage before and after. The footage before consists of shots of graduates arriving, gowning, having photography done. Footage after the ceremony consists of people celebrating, taking photos, and having hat throws. This is sent in the post within 4 - 6 weeks as it has to be edited. This product can dispatched anywhere in the World.

I write to thank you for your continued delivery of a professional and efficient service supporting our graduation ceremonies and ad hoc events.

It is very reassuring to me to know that, once I have advised you of the dates, you will put in place all aspects of organization required to deliver an excellent service to our customers. This leaves me free to concentrate on other aspects of the events without concern for the media services. When there has been need for intervention on our part you interpret our needs well and enhance the facility where possible.

Over the past years we have worked well to develop this event to it’s full potential and I look forward to working with you again this year when we can both enjoy the benefits of a well organized event.

Dawn Fantin

Head of Conference & Event Services Liverpool John Moores University

I am very happy to write in support of First Sight Media, the company I have used for the College Presentation Ceremonies for many years. The staff are always professional and courteous and I have never had any complaints from students or parents with regard to their dealings with, or with regard to their supplying the DVD’s. They also work well with my official photographers. To the best of my knowledge they manage their technical obligations well. I understand from our Media department that their production work is very good.

I have no plans to change my DVD suppliers and will be continuing with First Sight Media for the foreseeable future. I wholeheartedly recommend the Company to you.

First Sight Media have provided an excellent and comprehensive video/DVD recording service for Sheffield Hallam University Graduation Ceremonies since 2002.

This has, without exception, been delivered in a professional,seamless and cheerful manner by staff who are a pleasure to work with. Highly recommended to any other University looking for video/DVD services.

Grace Roberts

Graduation Ceremonies Manager Sheffield Hallam University

First Sight Media have been providing the video/DVD production for the University’s Degree Congregations since 2003.

The service we have received has always been excellent and the team are a pleasure to work with. First Sight’s technical team show a good understanding of the University Art Centre’s requirements and work seamlessly alongside our own technicians.

The video/DVD production is creative and professional in respect of both the photography around campus and the Degree Congregations themselves.

First Sight is always willing to go the extra mile to provide a good service and innovative solutions and products. I would be pleased to recommend them to any University requiring video/DVD production.

Many thanks for sending the video of my son's Graduation Ceremony at Liverpool University. The video is excellent and we are very pleased with it, and I have today placed an order with you for a set of photographs also.

Thanks again for a first class souvenir of a wonderful day.

My photos have arrived safely. Many thanks for everything that you have done to get my order processed. I'm really pleased with my order. My youngest child is in her third year at Warwick University.
