Faculty of Health and Wellbeing

If you wish to pursue a rewarding career in Health and Wellbeing, the University of Bolton's Faculty of Health and Wellbeing is one of the best places in the country to do so.

Amalia Gervasutti

MSc Physician Associate | 2019

"I like that there is a lot of academic support which helps to facilitate my learning. There is also excellent guidance with practical skills. The self-directed learning aspects are well balanced with the lecture-delivered content. The content that is delivered in lectures is done by leading professionals in the medical industry. Further, because of the close relationship of the Trust with the university, there has been real progress in establishing the role in practice.

I would recommend it because it’s a developing role, with increasing demand. I also believe that it would be very rewarding making a difference not only to individual patients but to our health care system."


Siaka Kowar

Early Years and Childhood Studies | 2019

"The University of Bolton was a suitable place for me to study as it has a variety of different facilities that met my individual needs. The people at the university are kind and friendly, which I liked. The course I am studying opens a variety of pathways, as I was not certain on my career choice. The best thing about Bolton is they are supportive and understanding and the ability to go on work placements."


Margaret Cromarty

BSc Health & Social Care | 2019

"It's informative, we get lots of support, it's fun and increases your chances of employment. The tutors are helpful and supportive. I like studying at the University because of the resources, friendly staff and my easy commute. I belong here in a very friendly atmosphere."


Ellisse Vernon

Adult Nursing | 2019

"The adult nursing course at the University of Bolton is outstanding; university tutors and clinical nurse tutors are very supportive and you’re not just a student ID number, at this university you are an individual with a name. The dedication and support which I have received since transferring has had an impact on me not only as a student nurse with becoming more confident but has had a positive impact on my overall grades. The clinical skills week before starting placement are brilliant and prepares you and helps you practice the skills needed on the wards. Throughout 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!"

Mellor Ceramics Dental Laboratory |

"I am writing to you to thank you for selecting such a fine young student. Wojciech Laska has been coming to my laboratory for the last two years. He has always been polite and well-mannered as well as hard-working and conscientious. He is a credit to the Centre for Dental Sciences and the time you have spent with him will stand him in good stead for his future career. As you know the dental industry is very close-knit and reputation is paramount both with quality of work and personality. Wojciech has shown to have both these qualities. I know he has been selected to go to Zirkonzhan in Italy, I would like to contribute £200 towards his travel expenses."


Oluwakemi Ayorinde

BSc Health & Social Care | 2019

"My course has taught me about how to deal with everyday life situations but most importantly to be accepting of every individual. I like studying at Bolton because it's filled with individuals who are motivated to strive to the top! I love it here and wouldn't choose to go anywhere else. "
