Welcome to the Bolton website pages specifically for our students (and colleagues) from The Gambia. Thank you for visiting the website and congratulations for making the decision to study in the UK.

The University of Bolton warmly welcomes students from The Gambia and although we are not able to visit Tanzania very often, a few students join us each year. We also welcome many other students from many other African countries

We may be visiting soon so if you would like to meet a member of the team or if you would like to discuss new opportunities then please contact either the university directly or one of our excellent representatives.

The University of Bolton is located in a region of the UK that has attracted international people from a number of years. Bolton itself is highly multi-cultural and diverse and as such, international student always feel very welcome. The town of Bolton has many provisions for people from all backgrounds and of all religions and the university has dedicated prayer rooms for all students use.

The University also has an excellent International Society that all international students are automatically members of. This society organises activities for all students including International evenings, social activities and sight-seeing trips around the UK. Alongside this, the Students' Union has many sporting activities and social events to keep students entertained during their studies.
