Accountancy | 2019

Crime and Criminal Justice |

"The course is very interesting and engaging taught by professional lecturers with experience within the criminal justice system. Due to the smaller class sizes the sessions have a more personal feel to them with lots of support both in and outside the classroom."


Joseph Benson

MSc International Management | 2017

"My main reason for choosing the University of Bolton was because of its small class sizes. This enables interactive lessons and quality education through one-to-one support. The facilities at the Institute of Management are also state-of-the-art, which makes studying here inspiring and informative."


Josh Foster

Law | 2018

"I attended an offer-holder day and was immediately interested in what the law entailed. The university is very welcoming and the lecturers are very supportive. The law school offers a wide range of opportunities, especially for students from a non-law background. The course is very well organised and the teaching is very in-depth and highly stimulating. The course allows us to gain knowledge over a broad range of subjects."
