With regards to Bolton town centre itself transport costs are not really necessary everything is within a short walking distance and even if you do get a taxi the maximum you'll pay is 3 the most likely is 2.50 in and out of town and the supermarkets. There are plenty of opportunities for part time work, clubs and bars are always looking for staff and promotions teams. Many people I know have part time jobs, there are also a few available within the union such as bar work and working in the shop.×

Costs are easily manageable as long as you sort out your priorities first; what is more important a night out or a decent meal for a week? There are plenty of supermarkets around Bolton offering great value for food and many have a lot of job offerings. We also have a lot of department stores/shops in general offering jobs that are flexible around uni. I've been working and living life without having give much up for the past year. It is doable.×

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.
