Support for New and Current Students
I only have GCSEs, can I still apply?
If you have no qualifications higher than GCSE/Level-2 then you need to consider an appropriate Level-3 course in order to progress to an Undergraduate programme.
Our partner institution Bolton College will be able to assist you, they are part of the University of Bolton Group. Bolton College offers a wide variety of Level-3 courses including Access to Higher Education programmes. Please take a look at Bolton college for further information and application procedures. We work very closely together and you will have the opportunity to visit the University to look at your progression options once you have successfully completed your Level-3 study. Please visit our subject areas page for details of the degree programmes you could be eligible for. We look forward to welcoming you on campus soon.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
