Bolton Students' Union is run by a leadership team consisting of a SU President, Student Trustees and NUS Delegate. Their job is to represent students at the university, and act as their voice.
The SU is also responsible for running academic and social events. There are plenty of clubs and societies for students to get involved in, learn a new skill and make new friends. They are also an ideal way for students to boost their CVs, providing them with essential skills such as leadership and teamwork. Students are welcome to start their own clubs and societies if a suitable one doesn’t already exist.
All University of Bolton students automatically become members of the Students’ Union.
University of Bolton students on Postgraduate study say:
“Definitely cater for the students. They really listen. On point representation! Great facilities.”
Clubs and societies
Joining a club or society encourages students to gain an entirely separate group of friends outside of their course. Societies are run by students for students, supported by the Students’ Union, and offer the opportunity for life-long friendships, sporting success and personal growth.
Societies can play an important role in expanding students’ social lives during their time at university and help students to develop transferrable skills. Societies are also a great place to help students to gain confidence, discover something new or fuel their passions.
The university is based close to the town centre, so students are close to everything the friendly town of Bolton has to offer. There is plenty to do and see and the town boasts several restaurants, cinemas, pubs and clubs to suit all tastes.
Bolton also has excellent travel links to the UK’s second capital city, Manchester, which is just 20 minutes’ away by bus or train. The bustling metropolitan city of Manchester is vibrant and diverse with an abundance of leisure and entertainment venues, as well as restaurants and eateries.
