My course is given jointly with School of Sound Recording, so I have some lectures in Bolton Uni and others in SSR, and so far I'm afraid to a lot of the lectures in the Uni have not been very well thought out as I don't think I came away from them and be able to say I learned from them.×

Although there isn't a lot of variety of food on campus and it isn't necessarily cheap, Bolton has a great Market which I have loved and can get great deals, I still shop there even though I commute from Chester. Job wise, I was offered a job at Asda as a christmas temp, but I generally found it hard to find a job. The cost of taxis in bolton is the cheapest I have ever seen anywhere which is great for getting to uni in a rush and getting around the town, although the student halls are at an easy walking distance.×

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.
