Study Skills

Study Skills: Primary Research

The University of Bolton Library have a wide range of research and study resources available to help you.

Primary research is research that you conduct yourself, such as by data, photos, or surveys for example. The below resource covers why you might need to use primary research and how you can incorporate it into your report writing at undergraduate level and also to develop your study skills for postgraduate level study.

Other Primary Research resources are available in PDF format.


You can also chat with our staff directly every Wednesday from 2 pm - 4 pm and periodically throughout the working week.

Alternatively, chat with our current students who will be able to share this information with you and any other course-related queries.

Or book onto one of our Open Days or Course Advice Days to find out more and speak with the team.
