I think with the new Bolton One sports centre its a lot easier to get involved in different activities, the library is quite big for such a small uni, with a fair amount of books. there are a few places to eat on the campus and a pleasant bar which is brilliant to be able to go and chill in.×
University seemed a lot more academic than I was anticipating upon entry to the course.Report

access to equipment at Bolton. Sometimes the equipment was ver subscribed and impossible to get say a studio for an assignment because two were used at all times as teaching rooms. Also would have been good to have some facility( I am sure this is the same problem at all unis) of being able to use the uni stuiops during holiday periods. because I could never get access because of sheer numbers of people wanting to use them( we had four diciplines in degrees and MA using four photo studios) I ended up having to pay to hire studios away from uni×
Everything. Appalling university.Report
Transport is expensive. Train costs are rising and a bus takes too long.Report

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
