After you've applied

What next?

After you've applied to Bradford through Clearing, there are a few more important things to think about.

Use this short guide to help you get organised.


If you haven't yet applied for Student Finance you'll need to do it now.

Student Finance allows you to borrow money to cover your university course fees and living costs while you study.

Our Student Life Team is also here to help with any additional guidance you need when it comes to money, whether it's support with Student Finance, or learning how to budget.

The Green is the centre of student life here at Bradford. It is the University's recommended student accommodation and is situated just a few minutes away from the Students' Union, the library and other key campus facilities. 

Compared to most university towns and cities in the UK, privately rented accommodation in Bradford is relatively inexpensive.

There are also a range of privately rented houses and apartments located within walking distance of City Campus.

Step up to HE

Get a step ahead and find out what being a university student is all about. Our Step Up to Higher Education (HE) programme is a great way to prepare for your studies by developing some of the essential skills you'll need at university.

It includes self-access online resources and activities, as well as a live programme of workshops that give you the chance to meet members of staff and other students.

Step Up to HE is free of charge and is available before the September term starts. You can access information and resources before course teaching begins.
