Will the Alternative Graduation be virtual or physical?

The Alternative Graduation ceremonies are physical. 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.

Footage will be recorded as you cross the stage. In August/September a Graduation Documentary will be released for each school for you to watch from home with your loved ones.

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.
