University of Bolton

Student review
By a UniMatch user

I have thoroughly enjoyed myself here, I've made friends that feel like family and although like every university there are flaws, this university will always be first in my heart and I can recommend anyone who wants more than just education to come here. I am very happy with the choice I made studying at Bolton, because the experience I've had I'm sure there is quite non like it. You can get a degree anywhere in the world but you can't get a degree and lasting bonds of friendship anywhere else other than Bolton.
