The University of Bolton puts our students at the heart of everything we do, whether studying On Campus in Bolton or Off Campus at one of our valued partner institutions. Students studying Off Campus may face particular challenges, so this page contains support and advice for you. You will find answers to some frequently asked questions, documents for download that we know many students will need during their time with us, and also contact details for the Off Campus Division. There are links to study skills and other student support services and links to your course information and your partner institution. The University of Bolton is your home, so please be welcome and contact us if we can help.
