Why the University of Bolton?
Offering a range of postgraduate options, including courses that require no prior experience of teaching or current employment in education, the University of Bolton is an ideal place for any aspiring childcare professional to begin their journey to the classroom. Our purpose-built facilities in the Eagle Tower include an array of well-appointed teaching and seminar rooms allowing you to gain vital experience in state-of-the-art facilities.

Schools, colleges, universities and other training providers are under pressure to meet the increased expectations of students, parents and employers. Key philosophical perspectives of our master’s programmes focus on the practitioner-led professional inquiry to empower teachers, managers and leaders with skills that are in demand; supporting decision making by the implementation of evidence-based practise.

We work hard to build links with professional bodies and employers. These help maintain the relevance of our courses. Research ensures that our academic content keeps pace with industry changes and innovations. These relationships can provide placement opportunities for our students, as well as providing research collaborations and consultancy opportunities.
