Welcome to the Bolton website pages specifically for our students (and colleagues) from United Arab Emirates. 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 UAE and a few students join the university each year along with many more from other Gulf States and countries in the Middle East.

We work very closely with all of our representatives, and regularly attend the exhibition that Global Vision organise each year.

We will be visiting again 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.
