University of Bolton gives great future.
Tips: Students studying in this university are promised great careers. It has great faculty, amazing campus and alluring post study options for settling down here. Alumni passed from here are engaged in reputed companies which makes it a great investment from educational point of view.
Likes (Post study jobs): Many companies and setups around our university are open to offer part time jobs to students. Students get a fair allowance for the hours given at work and also their travel time is saved. As soon as one settles in the class, part time options can be pursued without much thought.
Dislikes (Indian Food): The Indian food options within the campus are not very great. It has some great options with respect to continental food but Indian food lacks the authentic taste. Top of all, it is very expensive for students' budget as compared to other food choices.
