Bolton College meets many Higher Education student needs through Higher National Diplomas (HNDs) and Certificates (HNCs). Our existing students find that choosing to stay on at college locally, significantly reduces the cost of gaining a Higher Education qualification. Our prices are bench marked to be highly competitive and offer excellent value for money.
Bolton College scores high in satisfaction survey ratings for its HE provision. Student satisfaction with their course of study and learning experience continues to be very positive; and we pride ourselves of being able to provide current and enhanced opportunities for students to be able to learn directly from industry experienced teaching staff.
Bolton College also offers higher level (non prescribed provision) for Higher Education which includes professional qualifications and awards. For our range of higher level courses please visit our Adult Learning page here.
We continue to take pride in our standards of teaching and plan to build on this success by giving our students the opportunity for progression to top-up degrees and post-graduate study in teacher training. Bolton College is registered with Office for Students.
The Higher Education courses shown on Bolton College’s website are taught by Bolton College on behalf of the University of Bolton. Therefore, all the information applicants and learners provide will be shared between these two organisations. Applicants and learners will receive communication from both the University of Bolton and Bolton College. Student Finance Loan applications should be made using the institution ‘University of Bolton’ not Bolton College. All higher level courses (non-prescribed) are delivered at Bolton College. Applications and enquiries are directly to Bolton College.
All of our Higher Education students have access to the new online mental health platform, Student Space, which will provide support to you through the unique circumstances created by the coronavirus pandemic.
