GETTING A HEAD START
Book a place on our Get Ahead Summer School!
The Get Ahead! Event is an opportunity for you to experience the University of Bolton and meet other students before you start your course. Join us for one day, either on the 2 or 6 September, for an informative and informal day where you can participate in activities and gain an understanding of what to expect when studying at the university.
Get your finance sorted
If you are having difficulty managing your finances whilst studying at university, we can help you work through your problems with budgeting and money management sessions. Learn how to manage your finances and avoid getting into debt. We act as a referral agency allowing you to get in-touch with the right people.
Living in halls of residence creates unforgettable memories. You’ll learn to live independently and make new friends.
International pre-arrival checklist
There is the obvious stuff like the charger for your phone, toothbrush and maybe a pen, but don’t forget the documentation. You are advised to carry the following in your hand luggage (some of this will only apply to international students and not students from the EU).
- Valid passport, with visa/UK entry clearance
- Original documents to prove financial support for tuition fees and maintenance
- Original offer letter from the university stating home address
- Originals of any other important documents (e.g. previous qualifications which have been listed in your CAS)
- Travel insurance details
- Health certificate/check-up
- Details of your destination – address/telephone number
- Proof of purchase for any IT equipment
- British currency
- Spare passport-size photographs
CONFIRMING YOUR PLACE & ENROLLING
Meeting the conditions of your offer
Once your offer has been made unconditional, you will be sent an invitation to enrol, containing all the information you need.
Complete online enrolment
Enrolment takes place online and is part of the contract you will form with the University. Please read the ‘Important Information about Enrolment 2019/20’ document here and review the student information policy zone before enrolling.
Your enrolment invite will give you a date for you to come to the University before your course starts so that we can verify your ID, you can collect your student card, activate your access to the library and IT account and attend the Welcome and Induction sessions.
If you have applied for a tuition fee and/or maintenance loan through Student Finance England then we will notify them of your enrolment once we have checked your ID and you have received your student ID card. This will then release the loans into your bank account.
Remember to upload photograph for your Student ID card.
