Here's what our current students and alumni have to say about what life in Bradford is really like...

Bradford is such a community that it becomes a family and I've met some friends here which I am going to definitely have for life Sonia Sanghera - MSc Finance and Investment
Bradford was the one: the school had a good reputation with industry... It was a close-knit, friendly environment, and has the added bonus of being extremely good value for money Ryan Jones - BEng Chemical Engineering
Bradford gave me really positive vibes. I was told that Yorkshire people are the friendliest people of the UK and after living for one year in Bradford I can absolutely agree to that Manahil Javed - MSc Biomedical Sciences
I had low expectations but when I got here I absolutely loved it and I cannot talk about Bradford enough – I cannot big it up enough! Emily Davison - BSc Clinical Sciences
