Advice and guidance for applicants

Your experience at Bradford

From September 2021, the University of Bradford will offer a return to the campus experience for all its students.

This means you’ll be able to attend lectures on campus, meet friends to study and socialise, talk with tutors face-to-face and take part in a range of activities.

The full campus experience will include:

  • face-to-face lectures
  • indoor and outdoor sports
  • use of on-campus study areas to meet friends and tutors in person
  • use of the library and other facilities
  • an expanded range of activities

Best of both worlds

We have learnt lessons from the past year and adapted, taking advantage of the huge technological leaps made during the pandemic - this means our programmes will adapt their delivery to create a ‘best of both worlds’, for example by being flexible in the way learning is taught.

How programmes are taught will depend on the subject nature and what works best for students. The pandemic signaled a step-change in the way we all use technology, and we’re keen to build that into our learning and programmes, ultimately for the benefit of our student community.

This means that while our primary focus is for students to enjoy a full campus experience, including face-to-face teaching, some lectures may be available either live-streamed or ‘on demand’. Our goal here is to ensure technology enhances the learning and student experience.

This approach reflects our University motto: ‘Give invention light’ and aligns with our long-term strategy to promote equality, diversity and inclusion.

Why should you make University of Bradford your first choice?

It’s not just that our full return to campus will be lively and fun, creating a great place to learn - our University has also been voted #1 in England for improving students’ life chances, on the new SMI university rankings.

In 2020, we were also named University of the Year for Social Inclusion by The Times and Sunday Times.
