Support for New and Current Students
Is there a place where I can work on my Special Effects and Make-up projects outside of lecture times?
Yes, we have ample room in our light and airy studios, as well as materials and tools that you will find useful to develop your work. Self-directed study can be done in the studios, and there is plenty of room to work at larger scales and expand on skills you have learned in workshops, with your peers, or independently. You can have use of the studios throughout the week, sometimes until 9pm depending on the time of the year and schedules.
The library or Social Learning Zone (SLZ) are usually available to work on research or academic writing, however, access is limited due to COVID-19. There are a wide range of digital resources and journals available via Moodle and your student portal. For recommendations please see your recommended reading list.
If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Special Effects and Make-Up subject area.
Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.
At the University of Bolton, we understand our students have different requirements and we pride ourselves on the positive and supportive learning environment we provide. Being voted No. 1 for Student Satisfaction for the past three years (Complete University Guide, North West) is a testament to our approach.
We are proud of our work on-campus to ensure our students can enjoy #UniAsItShouldBe, COVID-secure.
