Student ID

I am a female student who wears a veil, do I have to remove my veil for the photograph?

Such issues will be dealt with in a sensitive manner with a full discussion taking place with the student.

Female students who wear a veil or headscarf may be expected to remove their veil/headscarf in order to have their photograph taken for an ID card. In all cases a female member of staff will take the photograph. If a female member of staff is not available at the time of the photograph, a suitable appointment will be arranged with the student.

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

If the student has uploaded a suitable photo during the online enrolment process there will be no need to take a photo in the Student Centre. Please contact the Student Advisor at studentadvisors@bolton.ac.uk if you have any questions.
