Entry Requirements

The course entry requirements need work experience or volunteering, but I couldn't do it because of COVID-19; what can I do?

There may be other ways to gain experience depending on the course you are applying for.

During the COVID-19 pandemic many companies and key sectors adjusted to online methods of working, so opportunities for online/remote work and placement opportunities became possible. Since the pandemic, face-to-face opportunities have opened up again at many companies and sectors, so you should be able to find opportunities to gain this experience in a few ways now.

You can contact our Careers Team careers@bolton.ac.uk or speak to a Student Advisor on studentadvisors@bolton.ac.uk for further advice and guidance.

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.
