Advice and Guidance

What support is available if I feel overwhelmed or like dropping out from my course?

University is a very big stepping stone and often people wonder if they made the right course choice or feel like they might want to drop out due to stresses etc. Here at the University of Bolton, we offer a lot of support and guidance if you find yourself in this situation.

For students in this predicament, we recommend visiting our student and careers services for a chat and some advice on what is best to do or help to switch courses by emailing studentadvisors@botlon.ac.uk or calling 01204 903 733.

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.
