The University of Bolton is featured in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019 highlighting that students rate their teaching among the best in the UK.

The guide says that in the most recent National Student Survey, students ranked Bolton fourth in the UK for satisfaction with teaching quality under a Sunday Times analysis of the outcomes.graduation mortar boards

The guide says that the University of Bolton’s psychology course and award-winning criminological and forensic psychology courses “are winning plaudits” and highlights how the university “has recently formed alliances with other regional educational institutions and businesses to help fuel its growth”.

The new edition of the guide, a free 96-page supplement, will be published this weekend in The Sunday Times (September 23).

Professor George Holmes, President and Vice Chancellor of the University of Bolton, said he was delighted that the university’s high standards of teaching had been recognised.

He added:

“It is fantastic to see the University of Bolton highlighted in The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2019.

“Our students are at the heart of everything we do and for us to be rated as one of the best universities in the UK by our students for our teaching is wonderful news.

“We have extremely dedicated and talented staff here and the fact that their hard work is being recognised is thoroughly deserved.”

Prof Holmes added:

“Being highlighted in the Good University Guide shows what great strides we have made and continue to make.

“This and the fact that we are rated number one in Greater Manchester for student satisfaction demonstrates that we are focused on making the experience for students the best it can be all round, socially and academically.

“We are an ambitious and forward thinking institution and have exciting plans for the future.”

The guide provides the definitive rankings for UK universities and the most comprehensive overview of higher education in Britain.

It includes profiles on 132 universities and the most authoritative UK university league table, making use of the latest data published in the past two months.

A fully searchable website with university profiles and 67 subject tables will be published at on Sunday for subscribers to The Times and The Sunday Times.

It contains full profiles of all universities. The league table is made up of nine indicators including student satisfaction with quality and their wider student experience, research quality, graduate prospects, entrance qualifications held by new students, degree results achieved, student/staff ratios, service and facilities spend, and degree completion rates.

The Times will complement coverage in The Sunday Times with two further supplements to be published on Monday and Tuesday, September 25 and 26. These will focus on the best universities for teaching quality and student experience and the universities that come top in different subject areas.

Expanded coverage with 67 subject tables and full interactive tables on all the league table components, and additional features are available to Times and Sunday Times subscribers at The Sunday Times.

The Times and The Sunday Times have produced university guides since 1993 and 1998 respectively.

Since 2013, they have published a combined Good University Guide to provide the most comprehensive guide to higher education in Britain in print and digital formats across The Times and The Sunday Times.
