            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
            2003-2006, Bachelor of Science (BSc)

            I studied at this University in 2003 and from the open day to the graduation day I experienced nothing but support from the staff. I am now back here working and it is the same experienced. Students and graduates can get expert one to one or remote support from the Careers Services for up to three years after graduating.

          • Testimony
            2009-2012, BA Hons

            I came here from studying at a larger, more high profile UK university for a short while which despite its reputation was appalling in terms of student support and advice, and ranked one of the lowest in the UK for student satisfaction as a result. When I joined Bolton to study BA Hons Creative Writing I found the overall support and experience excellent. Lovely tutors, fantastic Student Support Advisors and a great mix of young and mature students of all nationalities made Bolton a friendly and positive studying experience. I would recommend this university to anyone looking for a more intimate, down to earth and diverse environment for their degree course.
