Here are some of the other reasons to apply to Bolton University in 2021:

Manchester is a great place for tech jobs

According to a study by LinkedIn, the best city in the UK for IT, technology and software jobs outside of London is Manchester!

With over 10,000 tech-related jobs available (almost more than double that of Cambridge in the number two spot), there’s nowhere better to enjoy Software Engineering courses than the University of Bolton.

We are located just 15 minutes from the dynamic and metropolitan city of Manchester, and have excellent employer links within the Greater Manchester region.

We provide a positive learning environment

It’s our goal to help you unlock your potential, and we do this by providing a nurturing environment. You will be able to enjoy personal growth and development within our supportive and friendly campus, and our award-winning Student Services Team will support you throughout your studies.

We pride ourselves on delivering #UniAsItShould, where students, and their needs come first. Additionally, our Software Engineering courses welcome students of all abilities and backgrounds, and inclusivity is a priority here.

Real-life and relevant work experience is key

Our programme has been designed collaboratively with industrial partners, giving you the chance to equip yourself with professional skills that relevant right now. Because the modules are directly linked to industry, you’ll be able to learn about core ethical and environmental issues that will be encountered in a real workplace.

Throughout your training, our teaching staff will work with you to boost your CV and employability, while also helping you build your professional network. We also encourage students to get involved as much as possible by attending guest lectures and industry events.

Our courses are flexible

Returning to university after a few years working in the field isn’t an easy decision to make. While Postgraduate study is exciting and filled with new opportunities for those who wish to advance their career, it take a lot of dedication.

For students who need a bit more flexibility with their studies, we offer a part-time course that is completed in two years instead of one.

We care about your career progression

Our passionate tutors treat their students as individuals, and are proud to know them by name, and not their student number. They will spend time getting to know you, and your career goals so they can align the modules with your personal and professional development needs.

Furthermore, our dedicated Employability Team is on hand to support your career ambitions, helping you thrive in the industry upon graduation.
