The support services are really helpful, as is the Student Union which really listens to students and helps them out. My teachers were really enthusiastic and nice, and the course was chock full of content that was incredibly interesting. There were loads of societies where I met so many interesting new people. A lovely, friendly university, with a nice little nightlife - and Liverpool and Manchester are a quick train ride away if you want to have a big night out.

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.
