The University of Bolton warmly welcomes students from Cameroon and a large number join the university each year along with a number of students from other African nations.

The university has visited Cameroon many times in the past years and works very closely with the representatives in-country. We are planning to visit Cameroon again soon so if you would be interested in meeting a member of the team then please contact us or one of our representatives.
