You may want to check the background information on the pages for New students (pre-registration) or for Staff or for Current students, as appropriate, before proceeding to edit and upload your passport-style photo image.

Accessibility - The built-in image editor requires the use of a mouse or other pointing device, the keyboard cannot be used.
To use the image editor you must have the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) loaded on your computer. The JRE is safe and free. If you are not sure you if you have the latest version on your computer you can install it, by visiting the Java website.
Dependent upon your browser settings you may see warning messages displayed when you edit your photo, e.g. "Java has discovered application components that could indicate a security concern." You should NOT block or cancel the operation, but allow the application to load.
In a small number of cases users have experienced problems where the Offsite Proxy is set in their browser. If you do have a problem using the web editor we suggest trying to upload your image using a different browser, or another PC.
You should upload a recent photo taken with a digital camera or scanned from a good quality printed image. If an inappropriate, non plain background or poor quality image is uploaded you will be asked to provide an acceptable replacement. There could also be a delay in issuing your UCard on arrival. There may be a charge of £10 if a UCard is printed with an unacceptable image.
