Access Admissions Events

Book your place

If you're interested in enrolling on to an Access to Higher Education course at Bolton College, your first step is to attend one of our Access Admissions Events.


Access Admissions Events are run by the tutors of the Access to HE courses. These events will give you an understanding of:


  • What the course is about 
  • How many hours of study, in and out of the classroom, the course requires 
  • What the entry requirements are
  • What the facilities are like at Bolton College
  • How we can support you, including how to apply for an Advanced Learner Loan
  • Why do I need to attend?

    more less

    You must attend an Access Admissions Event to not only find out more about the course, but to sit a short assessment to determine whether an Access course is right for you.

  • What do I need to bring?

    more less

    You must bring evidence of your English and Maths GCSE results or Functional Skills equivalent. If you have a Functional Skills English/Maths qualification, please check with your destination university that they will accept Functional Skills English/Maths in place of GCSE English/Maths.  The responsibility is on you to contact the university, and obtain evidence of their requirements.


    If you do not have the required English and Maths grades, please instead book your place on a Welcome to English/Maths session - you will sit a short test, before being enrolled on to the appropriate English/Maths course. Once you have the required English/Maths grades, you will be ready to apply for an Access course starting in September 2020 (you must attend a 2020 Admissions Event before you are able to apply).   


    **PLEASE NOTE** You will not be able to enrol for a GCSE alongside an Access course.
