            2008-2011, Bsc (Hons)

            The University of Bolton was, and continues to be a brilliant basis for individuals to apply themselves to reach their potential and make a success story out of their education. I was unsure which University I wanted to join, but saw the Psychology discipline at the University of Bolton being an outstanding area of teaching. During my Psychology degree I was able to achieve more than I had envisaged in part to the fantastic and enthusiastic staff who had more than enough time to answer queries or any challenging aspect of the degree. The environment was friendly and constructive, as study space was at a premium back home I found the University facilities to be more than adequate to lose yourself an an assignment for a couple hours. Beyond graduating with a 2:1 degree in Bsc Psychology I was successful in a job application to become a Graduate Intern, which has seen me gain vast job experience which now culminates in my current position. Being able to assist students to gain the same levels of support I received is now a continual goal in my profession.

            2009-2013, Master's degree

            I really enjoyed gaining my MEd at Bolton. My tutors were friendly, the course was really practical and I learned an awful lot (not just about education).

          • Testimony
            2009-2013, BA (Hons) (First class)

            I studied my MBA at Bolton University. I know some may scoff as it is a small uni and not very high in the ranking but It has a genuine multicultural mix of students. Class discussion involved students from China, India and many other faraway places.-international business is discussed by students who actually live in these places and experience changes in the economy and various issues and perspectives concerning what is currently happening. university exams and firsts are verified by other universities so don't think a degree from Bolton is any less than a degree at Oxford ..... It's so much more !!!! I started my business, see www.potionshop.co.uk after my graduation.
