How we measure the student experience
i-Graduate’s International Student Barometer (ISB) is the leading tool for tracking the international student experience.
The ISB uses feedback from over 167,000 students worldwide across all student types, levels and years of study.
It tracks and compares the decision-making, expectations, perceptions and intentions of international students from application to graduation. It informs how we improve the quality of the student experience here at Bradford.

From the moment I applied, the Admissions Team were so professional; any time I called or emailed, the response was so helpful and I was soon given a lecturer who was responsible for my journey. That personal contact was invaluable, I felt supported immediately and knew all about where I’d live, the class timetable, and what to expect when I got here.
