Overview

University of Bolton was initially founded in 1824 as the Bolton Mechanics institute, before going through a number of changes and eventually being given taught degree awarding powers in 1990, and the title University of Bolton in 2005. Over 11,000 students are currently enrolled.

Over 30 University of Bolton courses are professionally accredited, including British Psychological Society and the Nursing and Midwifery Council. Bolton is also a leading UK institution when catering for students with disabilities of all kinds.
