Enrolment in 5 Steps
Once you have met all the conditions of your offer you will be send an enrolment invitation via email. Please read this and the attachments carefully as it forms the basis of your contract with the University.
Completing your online enrolment
Step 1 – Your Invitation to Enrol
If your offer is still ‘conditional’ then you’ll need to send any documents or qualification evidence to us at firstname.lastname@example.org before we can make your offer ‘unconditional’ and send your enrolment invitation.
Your enrolment invitation contains all the important information you need about enrolling and step-by-step guidance. Enrolment is an entirely online process and you can follow the links in the documents sent to you or here on this page. Note: You will not be able to enrol until you have received this email invitation.
Please ensure you have read and understood the email, programme specification and policies and referred to Student Policy Zone | University of Bolton before you proceed to enrol.
Step 2 – Complete the Enrolment Form
You will be asked for your provisional student number (shown on your offer letters or enrolment invitation) and your date of birth. This will generate your account details to enable you to complete enrolment.
You will be asked to read the Terms and Conditions of Enrolment carefully and accept that you agree to them. There will also be a few short questions that we need to collect the answers to from you.
Step 3 – Upload your Photo
Once you have enrolled online you will be asked to upload a photo for your ID card and virtual ID card. Your virtual ID card will appear on the MyBolton app which you should download as soon as you can. Your physical ID card will be distributed as soon as possible after the start of your course.
Step 4 – ID Check
Once you have completed enrolment you will be asked to upload a copy of your ID. We need to see this in order to make sure you have the right to study in the UK and to confirm your attendance to Student Finance England.
Full details of acceptable forms of ID are provided with your enrolment invitation or you can check enrolment instructions.
Once your ID has been checked and verified you will receive a confirmation email and you will have access to the library resources, IT systems and your personal timetable.
Step 5 – Attend your Course Induction
You will be sent information about your course induction separately so please keep an eye out for this information coming through. It’s really important you do your best to attend your course induction as this sets you up for the start of teaching and provides all the essential knowledge you’ll need about how your course works.
