I submitted a direct application during Clearing, how long till I hear back?

We really appreciate that you have taken the time to apply to the University of Bolton for a place via Clearing. Usually, an application receives a response within 5-10 working days as a general turnaround, however during Clearing this may take slightly longer due to the number of applications coming through. If you have received an email thanking you for your application please be patient and wait till we contact you asking for further information or when a decision has been made. If you have not heard from us since applying you can contact us on 01204 903 394 or email to see where your application is up to.

It’s a big decision whether you think University is the right path to support your career ambitions. The University of Bolton is proud to offer its students #UniAsItShouldBe; a supportive learning environment, where we put you, and your needs, first!

You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.

We're delighted to be No. 1 in the North West for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times, Good University Guide 2021), and for the past 3 years we have been voted No.1 for Student Satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2021, North West).

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
