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

The University of Bolton warmly welcomes Bahraini students and a small number join the university each year along with a large number of students from other Middle Eastern and Gulf states. We work closely with our representative Global Vision and regularly attend exhibitions organised by then each year.

We are also planning to visit Bahrain again soon so if you are interested in meeting a member of the team then please feel free to contact us
