Higher Education

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.


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.
