How do I apply for student finance?

It is really important to start your student finance application as early as possible, with applications opening in early spring for the next academic year. If you are a Home or EU applicant, please visit the UK Government's Student Finance website here and follow the 'how to apply' link and information. If you need any support or have any questions our Student Funding Advisers will be happy to help, please email us at

If you are an international applicant, please visit our international information page for student finance information.

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.

Picking what is the right University to support your career ambitions is a big decision. So why the University of Bolton? Our campus is both supportive and friendly, our lecturers are knowledgeable and passionate, our facilities are industry-standard and state-of-the-art. However, most importantly, we put our students and their needs, first.

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.
