Why a Smaller University Could be Right for You

Still not applied to university? Heres a look at why a smaller university might be the best fit for your studies.

Does a big university or a smaller, tight-knit university appeal to you more? Knowing how to choose the right university can make all the difference to your experience as a student.

The University of Bolton is a fantastic size, with around 8,000 students and impressive university rankings. Weve been a Top 6 UK University for Teaching Quality in The Times Good University Guide* for three years running. Also for the past four years, our students have voted us No.1 for Student Satisfaction in the North West.**

So theres nowhere better to enjoy life at university, and theres still time to apply! See our Clearing website for available courses.

Here are some of the reasons why a smaller university like ours could suit you better:

Get more support from course leaders

Knowing how to choose the right university starts with knowing whats important to you, and what you want from your experience as a student. While big universities are great, it can often be harder to connect with lecturers and heads of department.

One of the best reasons to apply to the University of Bolton is to take advantage of our small class sizes. By keeping study groups manageable, course leaders ensure you get all the attention and personalised support you need.

Our teaching staff provide one-to-one mentorship and will get to know you, and your career goals, tailoring the programme to nurture your personal and professional development.
