Survey Season 2016 — Have Your Say

Surveys provide an opportunity for you to give us feedback on your experience here at the University of Bradford.

Whether you are an undergraduate or a postgraduate Bradford-based student, there should be a survey for you to participate in.

The surveys

We are running five key student experience surveys for 2015/16.
