The University of Bolton is an enterprising and professional university that is recognised for its long standing research tradition and pioneering links with business and industry.
The University of Bolton enjoys an excellent reputation locally, nationally and internationally for the quality of its research activities. We are committed to an interdisciplinary approach that supports research across different academic areas and which is essential to the university's culture of enterprise and development.
Research and innovation underpins the university's teaching and ensures the rigour and quality of all our courses. This ensures that our student body benefits from outstanding teaching, in an environment which is conducive to discovery and new ways of thinking.
Our relationships with public and private sector organisations are strong; whether working with a regional SME to improve their competitive edge or collaborating in international, multi-million pound research programmes.
We see a strong synergy between applied research and enterprise, enabling impressive knowledge transfer between academia and business, industry and the community through consultancy, funded projects, training, conferences and research.
UK Research Councils, the European Union, the Northwest Development Agency, the Training and Development Agency for Schools, the NHS and many other private and public organisations provide a significant source of funding for research and enterprise activities.
The University of Bolton has a number of research centres, spin off companies and interdisciplinary knowledge transfer groups. These have a staff base capable of providing expertise in many specialisms and facilities that support research, technology transfer and inform social policy.
