Course Information

The course I want to study is listed as subject to approval, what does this mean?

At the University of Bolton we are constantly developing our courses to keep them up-to-date and to make sure you are as employable as possible once you graduate. If the course you are interested in is listed as subject to approval this means there is some internal approval needed before formal offers can be made. Courses go through rigorous validation processes before we offer places to students, this ensures they are as relevant as possible and have professional accreditations where appropriate, for more information on our courses, please visit our subject areas pages.

You can find out more about our application and admissions processes on our application and admissions pages. Alternatively, you can call us on 01204 903 394 or email

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.
