Welcome to the Bolton website pages specifically for our students (and colleagues) from Ghana. 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 Ghana and a large number join the university each year along with a number of students from other African nations.

The university has visited Ghana many times in the past years and works very closely with the representatives in-country. We are planning to visit Ghana again soon so if you would be interested in meeting a member of the team then please contact us or one of our 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.


The University of Bolton works in partnership with both Aptech and NIIT and we are currently finalising a one year Top-Up degree in Computer Networks. More details will be released shortly.
