What is the current position of the University regarding COVID-19?

Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic the University has maintained regular contact with Bolton Council's Public Health Department and has followed the advice of the UK Government, Public Health England (PHE), together with guidance from the NHS and the Foreign & Commonwealth Office (FCO).

We will be updating the FAQs each time any update is available and we will outline all the measures we are taking to ensure your safety. Please note that this is a working document and will be the first place you should check if you have any questions regarding how we are dealing with it as an institution. For detailed information provided by the UK government please visit

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.

If you'd like more information about our COVID-secure campus then you can watch our video explaining exactly what to expect when you come to the University of Bolton.

There is nothing more important to the University of Bolton than the safety of our students and staff. 

We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
