Entry Requirements

My qualification doesn't have UCAS points, how can I apply?

Most level 3 qualifications will have a UCAS tariff equivalent that can be found here.

Of course, the University of Bolton is happy to consider your application if your qualifications are not listed in the UCAS points tariff. If you are not sure if your qualifications are 'A-level equivalent' or would like to speak to someone about your application, please get in touch with the team at admissions@bolton.ac.uk or call 01204 903 394.

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.

You can find out more about our application and admissions processes on our application and admissions page.
