About University: Bolton has enjoyed a large rise in applications in recent years, and has undertaken a multimillion-pound development programme to match. Beginning with the completion of the £2.5m social learning zone, student union and 24/7 computing facilities, the campus transformation has continued apace. A further £10m has been spent to create top-specification arts, media and technologies facilities and Bolton One, a £31m health, leisure and research centre managed by the university, Bolton council and NHS Bolton has opened on campus. Sports and leisure facilities include a new sports hall, 50ft climbing wall, 25-metre swimming pool, dance studio and gym.

Of the 13,000 or so students, about a third are from the north-west. Perhaps it's not surprising they haven't strayed too far. Bolton itself is one of the largest towns in the country and there's a rich cultural heritage and plenty to do - not to mention the fact that Manchester is just a short hop away for some real big-city life.
