What is Clearing?

Clearing is for students who have not yet received a University place. This could be for a number of reasons, you may be applying through UCAS after the 30th June; a change of heart about your University choice or you may not have been able to meet the conditions of your original offer. We are always happy to help talk you through the Clearing process and assist with any queries you may have about the University of Bolton, or your course of interest.

For further information please contact us on our Clearing line 0808 281 1111, email or visit our Clearing page

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.

It’s a big decision whether you think University is the right path to support your career ambitions. The University of Bolton is proud to offer its students #UniAsItShouldBe; a supportive learning environment, where we put you, and your needs, first!

We're delighted to be No. 1 in the North West for Teaching Quality (The Times and Sunday Times, Good University Guide 2021), and for the past 3 years we have been voted No.1 for Student Satisfaction (Complete University Guide 2021, North West).

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