Once you make a university application, you don’t want to feel like you are left in the dark with how it’s progressing. You just want to know where you stand. Below, we reveal more about the different ways that the University of Bolton keeps you updated throughout the application process so you can rest assured everything is being taken care of.
Making a University Application at the University of Bolton
No matter whether it is your first time going to university or you have studied at university level before, we know that choosing a university and making an application is a critical period in anyone’s life. And once the application is made, many students are on tenterhooks until they receive a response. Once we’ve received your application, you can be sure the friendly team at the University of Bolton will be there for you every step of the way.
We accept applications from students all over the world with all backgrounds, using our Student Admissions Policy to assess every applicant on their own merit and in line with the course criteria.
UCAS points from subjects like Critical Thinking and General Studies are accepted at AS/A2-level for most courses. We also accept as many as 16 points from Level 3 and 4 Key Skills, the Higher Sports Leaders Awards, or the Free-Standing Mathematics qualifications. You also have the option of combining points from various qualifications, so long as they are not the same subject.
You must have a minimum of five grade 4 (or above) GCSEs or the equivalent. Mathematics and English must be included for some courses. We recommend that you head to the courses page on our website and look at the information for each specific course to find out more about this and what is going to be expected of you.
If you don’t have an urgent query and you want to speak to a member of our academic staff, they are available from 2pm until 4pm on Wednesdays https://www.bolton.ac.uk/chat-to-our-staff. We also have support staff available throughout the week. This is a great way for you to speak with international staff, course leaders, and those involved in recruitment, funding and fees, and admissions. You can ask any questions that you may have about making a university application at the University of Bolton.
Our Student Services Team is also available from 10am until 4pm, Monday to Friday, should you have any queries that you think they could help with. We have different departments that can help you with various elements of your application process. For example, you can click here to speak with our Student Funding team who will be happy to assist you with this and answer any questions you may have.
