As a very mature student my expectations were low both academically and socially. How wrong I was! I have made some amazing friends of all ages, from diverse cultures and thanks to the excellent tutors I've exceeded my academic expectations. Choosing to study for an undergraduate degree at Bolton University was the best decision I ever made.

Dont apply for this university, waste of money and time. Only one lecturer (a lady) made an effort others were not worth it. They only cared to get the fees. After the course they just inform home office that we did stop studying instead completed the studies and did not want to do anything to correct it.

Was recommended this uni, but wish I did more research and not just looked at their website for the rating. The lectures don't respond to emails, some people who struggle in classes get usually left out and only the very knowledgeable students get appreciated. You pay 9k+ a year to watch YouTube videos and spend 90% studying at home and only get taught about 10% at the very best by the lectures. This university is all talk but not show.

Staff excluding lecturers don't know what they're doing, don't check emails, don't know what departments deal with what, send generic template emails back to you when you're involved in a serious accident and refuse to provide an extension to deadlines regardless that you're entitled to one.

Location is not good, in an area of Bolton that's bad for crime. The campus has become part of a kind of junior university zone - it is next to Bolton College, a school (also a part of the University) and a 6th form college. Basically I didn't want to be at a University and be surrounded by young kids. My course was ok, but most of the time I regretted studying there. Facilities are poor compared to what I've seen in the larger universities in the Northwest.

University is in a terrible area. so-so facilities, library is small and has outdated books. They really will need to make sure the PCs in there are kept cleaner than they were in 2019, SU is not very active, and in the past has been very repressed, virtually run by university staff to stop them spending money on students.

May I suggest the university alters it's policy with regard to communication with prospective students. If a new customer who is willing to pay nearly ten thousand pounds to attend a years course then when that new customer contacts the course tutor to clarify some information and they don't reply it looks fairly unorganised. However, what looks even more unorganised is when said tutor receives a UCAS application and sends a personal SMS to that new customer and doesn't even bother to reply to the response of the SMS. Well I'm disappointed. But not as much has if I had started this course, paid the money and then received substandard service as I have as a new customer. Thanks university Bolton for wasting one of my choices on my UCAS forms but thanks for saving me the money and the problems I would obviously face as a student of yours.

A great university. I couldn't have asked for a better experience. Although quite a small uni, this provides the opportunity to get to know your lecturers and fellow students on a more personal level. If you're struggling there's always someone to turn to in and out of class with the great facilities and added mile the uni will go to help you.

Very nice university, with small groups, so you always get enough attention from the teachers. Good facilities, lots of printers (no queues), and great choice in library, although needs some new books. Could be more clubs and societies, or at least those ones existing could be a bit more active.

The campus its self is very modern and clean making it an enjoyable place to study, I joined the hockey team and it has been the most enjoyable thing I have done since I got here. The SU is very modern also but lacks in size making it so most social event have to be done in the study area, I have not been shown any career opportunities at the University, also the internet is all over campus making it very useful.

The Orlando village halls are in very very bad need of a redecorating and preferably redesigning. They don't even have a real oven in the kitchens, it's a table top electric oven that only fits one small pizza or one portion of chips in at a time: this is supposed to feed a flat of 6. The security are over bearing at times and non existent when they are actually needed. The £78 a week rent seems cheap until you realise how truly s*** this place is and that people are paying barely a few pounds more for somewhere that is clean, decorated, spacious and secure. It takes them weeks if not months to respond to most complaints of broken kitchen appliances etc. but barely a day to change a light bulb (they have backwards priorities or don't bother if it costs them more than £5 to fix it). The university itself has a very corrupt management that fire staff without warning for ludicrous, unfounded reasons leaving the students without tutors or support at crucial times in their education.
