As any teacher knows, quality teaching is essential for student success. The small class sizes at Bolton University mean that our lecturers get to know their students by name. By taking the time to provide more frequent one-to-one support, and learn about their student's interests and backgrounds, teachers can create a more supportive and friendly learning environment.
We believe that our students deserve nothing less than the best education, and that’s why we are proud to have been voted first for Teaching Quality*. Look at what our students have said about their Bolton University experience:
“What I love about studying at Bolton is that it feels like fun, not work. The quality of teaching here and the lecturers are great, we get lots of support”.
- Joshua Glynn | Film FX Student
“All our lecturers have industry experience and that makes a big difference, preparing us in the best way.”
- Esme Morgan | Film FX Student
“My tutors support and encourage my ambitions and help make them a reality."
- Sadie Heise | Animation and Illustration Student
What is teaching quality and why is it so important
Many factors contribute to teaching quality; the experience and passion of the lecture team, the great facilities our students get taught in, and the supportive environment. We are constantly working to ensure that all these elements are of the highest possible standard. Our teaching quality also gives us another reason to shout about our multi-million-pound investment in our state-of-the-art facilities; meaning we have the industry-spec equipment to offer our students the university experience they deserve.
How Bolton University has developed a quality teaching practice
Our teaching practice is industry-led and employer-focused. We work closely with industry partners to ensure that our teaching is relevant. We also offer a range of support services to help our students succeed in their studies. We offer the Bolton Award programme, providing work experience to help our students develop the all-important skills that employers are looking for; presenting them with the best chance of standing out from the crowd in a competitive marketplace.
The benefits of quality teaching
Quality teaching benefits everyone at the University of Bolton. For students, it means receiving a well-rounded and relevant education that prepares them for success in the real world. For our expert lecturers, it means being able to teach with confidence, knowing that our students are receiving an excellent education.
