How to Apply

We recommend that you apply through your country representative as they can help you at every stage of your application and communicate with the University on your behalf.

They often provide additional services to ensure your smooth arrival to the UK such as visa application support and assistance with your travel arrangements.

Go to our 'Find an Overseas Representative' page to see if your country has a representative.

Otherwise, information on how to apply by yourself can be found below.

Undergraduate degrees

All applications must be submitted online via the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS).

Full instructions for International and EU students can be found on the UCAS website.

You can also contact your nearest British Council Office or University agent, who will be able to assist you throughout the application process.

The UCAS code for the University of Bradford is: BRADF B56.
