The fundamental principle of the University’s Teaching Intensive Research Informed (TIRI) approach is to provide high quality intensive teaching to our undergraduate and postgraduate students across the academic disciplines of the University. The intensive teaching is sustained by rigorous research that informs both the content and delivery of the curriculum. The TIRI approach places students at the centre of everything we do and develops distinctive academic strengths and competitive advantage in the sector.

We have an annual TIRI conference for staff at the University and its collaborative partners who teach and support University of Bolton students.  The University's TIRI agenda underpins all the conference sessions as well as providing the focus for the interdisciplinary conference tracks.  Our annual TIRI conference is one of the ways we share practice, ideas and research with professionals from other universities, our partners, and our own staff and students.
