The library is a good facility. It has a lot of books which cover all subjects that you can think of. The university also has a library system where you can type in keywords and search for a book without having to waste time wandering around looking book in a specific subject. The great thing is these computers are free to use and are right outside the library. Checking in your books can be quite a hassle which is why the library has a machine that allows you to scan your books in and leave them there. This saves valuable time. The University is appropriately broken up into specific sections. There is a creative building for creative arts course (music, games, english literature, programming) and right across the road is another building that normally serves as the social hub where students can meet up in either the lounge, the cafe, or the social club upstairs. There is also a university shop for a student to buy materials, food and drink for low prices. The university does generally have good facilities. Students can rent out a decent laptop to use for around 3 hours to do some social things or to work on assignments while on there break. The library is kitted with good workstations that include all office programs so getting work done in there with tons of books surrounded around you is a good thing. In regards to more demanding courses like animation, 3D or game courses. The university has very powerful computers to deal with very demanding softwares. This makes working on briefs much smoother.×

The cost of living in Bolton is fairly low, so managing you cost is quite easy. There is plenty of supermarkets as well as Bolton market to look for bargains, while the student union has dropped its prices the prices in town are also quite low so as long as your willing to experiment with places you will be fine. The local train station provides good costs of travel and there is plenty of part-time work available.×

Definitely the night life side of things, the students union is the most pathetic excuse of a place to go for a drink I've ever known, they put on very few good nights (DJ's comedy nights, even a cheap drink night would have helped) and when they do it's ALWAYS cheaper and a better experience to just go out in Bolton town centre (which is an awesome night out, surprisingly)×

Some lecturers will really help you if you struggle, many of them will make themselves available for 1 to 1 tuitions if needed by appointment. Also within Psychology you are each assigned a personal tutor to help you with any issues you may have.×

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.
