Can I have my photographs taken before my graduation?

Yes, but you should allow yourself sufficient time to register, collect your academic dress, have photographs taken, and make your way to the Town Hall, The Albert Halls, Bolton. You need to be seated at least 15 minutes before the start of the ceremony.  The walk from the University to the Albert Halls takes approximately 25 minutes.  Therefore, you must leave the University at least 45 minutes before the start of your ceremony.
