“Health and Social Care seemed the perfect choice for me as I enjoyed my job but wanted to improve my professional aptitudes. Being able to study for my degree at the University of Bolton has been and still represents such a beautiful journey, during which I was blessed to learn many things relevant to the topics I’m interested in. I’ve also met kind colleagues and very supportive tutors. I am grateful for the opportunity I was given and would definitely recommend the University of Bolton as the best place to study.”

“They really are a good University, our daughter is there and have to say they always put students welfare at the forefront. It's been quite a turbulent year with the fire and then this but they've always stepped up haven't they... good luck in September.”

Bolton School of Arts

“I applied to this campus as soon as I walked in I knew that it was a friendly place that was a good size and would be more suited for my needs. The lecturers were great and friendly and I knew that they had my best interests at heart.

The best thing about this course is the teaching and because the course is centred around the industry and real-life situations your progress is better and it prepares you for work to a higher extent than other universities that just want good grades. Here this course is more meaningful and more impactful in your life. A great example of this would be when lecturers state that work would be good for your portfolio and not just for the submission area.”

Faculty of Health & Wellbeing

“The clinical skills week before starting placement are brilliant and helps you practice the skills needed on the wards.

Throughout the placement, the clinical nurse tutors come and see you every week to ensure everything is going smoothly and to highlight any issues if any. I couldn’t recommend studying at the University of Bolton enough, it is fantastic!”

Ellisse Vernon | Student Adult Nursing | 2022

School of Education and Psychology

“The lecturers here are absolutely amazing. They are always there to talk about work, or even other things that may be affecting you outside of university. I have a great relationship with them all.”

Sian Worton | BSc (Hons) Criminological and Forensic Psychology – Year 2 | 2023
