Abstract: We extend a result due to Bourgain on the uniform distribution of residues by proving that subsets of the type $ f(I)\cdot H$ are equidistributed (as $ p$ tends to infinity), where $ f$ is a polynomial, $ I$ is an interval of $ \mathbb{F}_p$ and $ H$ is an approximate subgroup of $ \mathbb{F}_p^*$ with size larger than polylogarithmic in $ p$.
