I would like to know more about Fast-Track to Higher Education and Polymaths courses.

Thank you for enquiring about the Access to Higher Education courses. These courses are perfect if you haven't got the qualifications you need to go straight on to an Undergraduate course, or if you need to boost your skills in a particular area.

Polymaths, Fast-Track to Nursing, and Fast-Track to Higher Education courses will prepare you for relevant courses in Higher Education. These are delivered by the University of Bolton and you should apply directly to the University. You can find information on our courses including; entry requirements, programme leader contact details, and instructions on how to apply here.

Access courses are delivered via Bolton College, part of the University of Bolton Group, for more information or to apply please visit here.

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.

At the University of Bolton we understand our students have different requirements and pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide.
