Research

Most of our staff are research active, and contribute to the cutting edge of their disciplines.

Bradford has a strong pedigree of world leading research, and our aim is to ensure that students benefit from our staff’s insight into the future of their subject. 

The integration of new and innovative research findings into our curriculum, known as research informed teaching, is a core value and one of the key principles driving the design of our courses and our modules. Particularly in the final year, but throughout their course from the very first day, students are given insight into the future of Computing and Business, and the opportunities presented when they come together.

The University reserves the right to alter or withdraw courses, services and facilities as described on our website without notice and to amend Ordinances, Regulations, fees and charges at any time.
