University of Bolton

Welcome to the University of Bolton

Voted as the number one university in Greater Manchester for student satisfaction by the National Student Survey 2017.

Why Bolton?

A modern university with multi-million pound facilities and a heritage of almost 200 years delivering employer-led course and education. We are renowned not only for our passionate professional staff, but ensuring we provide our students with a positive learning experience.

We also have excellent links to business and industry, with many of our postgraduate courses being accredited by official bodies such as the British Psychological Society (BPS), the Chartered Institute of Building (CIOB) and the Chartered Management Institute (CMI) among others.

Our students come first

Your time is important to us and precious to you, that’s why we keep class sizes small to maximise your learning experience. Our courses are about placing you, the student, at the heart of everything we do to support you to combine postgraduate study with your career.

You can also study postgraduate research degrees with the Research and Graduate School, a dedicated service offering support for all research degree students to enhance their experience as a researcher and to make the most of researcher opportunities at the university.

Our location

Bolton interchange has fantastic transport links to all the major cities in the North West (Manchester, Liverpool and Preston). The wonderful Peak District and Lake Districts are on your doorstep, whilst Bolton town centre is a short walk from the main campus.


Further study at postgraduate level is a worthwhile investment in your career. A postgraduate degree could help you earn £200k more over the course of your career, compared to an undergraduate degree (Sutton Trust, 2013).

If your employer is not able to help with your university costs, or you are looking to self-fund your tuition, you may be eligible to apply for a Postgraduate Masters Loan or Postgraduate Doctoral Loan. Further information can be found on the Government website.

We also offer various scholarships and details of these can be found on our website.

Our communities

Bolton Students Union have a range of student societies (democratic student led groups) and if there isn’t one to suit your needs you can create one! Find out more here.

You can join our Postgraduate Research Students Society (PGRSS), to share knowledge, information and experience amongst fellow like-minded people who share the same aspirations as you.
