I have been given an AM/PM graduation slot – how long will graduation last?

The Chase Films will issue a time slot once registration has closed, this will depend on student numbers. Unfortunately, we cannot provide an exact time slot at this time.

However, we estimate that AM sessions will be between 9am-12pm and PM between 12pm and 5pm (however on 13 July we believe the PM session will be shortened).

Please keep in mind that the process of arriving at the University, showing your negative COVID test result, temperature scanning, registration, robing, photography, filming receiving your award, exit, additional outdoor photograph, gown hire return and then leaving campus will be similar to the vaccination process that we may have experienced at vaccination centres.

We anticipate that your time on campus from arrival to departure will take no longer than approximately 30 minutes.

At the University of Bolton, we are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe in a COVID-secure environment.
