Virtual Graduation

Some people are finding difficulties to attend graduation ceremonies and/or travel to the BIU offices.

Consequently, we thought of a way to provide you with unforgettable graduation pictures from your home or office.

 

How? Very easy.

 

1. Just get the BIU flags and logo background picture by dragging it from our web. You may find this photo at this link

  • https://www.bircham.net/biu-graduates/ceremonies.html
  • If you want this picture with a HD resolution, you may ask BIU staff to deliver it by email.

 

2. Dress with a formal attire or with the corresponding degree cap and gown, if you want to portrait a perfect moment. 

  • The BIU web provides a visual example of the different graduation options: Professor Doctor - Doctor Ph.D. Master & Bachelor’s degree.
  • You may get a set of a cap and gown from a US provider such as https://www.graduationsource.com/caps-and-gowns.html
  • Note that shipping and customs taxes may be more expensive than the cap and gown itself for shipments outside the United States.
  • If that is the case, you should look for option within your country. You may even rent it for a few hours for the picture, or just use a formal attire.

 

3. Take some good pictures with your formal attire or cap and gown in front of a simple or uniform background (a white wall, simple curtains, etc...). Medium and close up shots work better. Then, select the pictures you like the most.

 

4. Use any remove background application to substitute your original photo background with the BIU flags and logo picture. Here is one that works online and is free.

  • https://www.remove.bg
  • (Drag the your picture to the web clean the background, then click edit  on the top right corner of the picture and select the BIU background)

 

Then you are all set!!!

You now have a BIU graduation picture.

Note that applications like Zoom and Skype provide utilities to change the background in order to take pictures or make a video. There are other applications with similar utilities. Feel free to use your own. We just want to provide a nice BIU institutional background and samples of our graduation attire in case you can not attend our ceremonies.

 

Do not forget to share your virtual graduation picture or video with us.

If you send your testimony and your picture by email, then we will publish it on the BIU web.
