Would I need to buy any specific kit for my Computing course?

Computing courses do not require any specific kit providing you are accessing the computer labs regularly and there are spaces available. We do recommend a laptop or desktop computer with a Core i5 CPU (or equivalent) with at least 8GM of RAM. We have arrangements in place to ensure you can access essential software while you are off-campus. Of course, you will require stationary for note-taking.

If you have any other enquiries relating to this you can contact the Computing Team to discuss, their contact details can be found at the bottom of the specific course page by searching the Computing subject area.

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.

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.
