You can make a difference

Our alumni, friends, partners, and supporters are essential to our continuing development and success, and the University's ability to make a positive impact on society. Here at the University of Bradford, we are ‘Making Knowledge Work’ to solve some of society’s biggest challenges. We have always been pioneering in our approach, from being the first British University to offer a Peace Studies degree, to the first to set up a modern business school and the first British University outside of London to offer part-time degree courses.

The University has identified three areas of academic priority; Advanced Healthcare, Innovative Engineering, and Sustainable Societies. Our focus on these areas prepares us to tackle pressing global challenges and enables the development of the next generation of pioneers.


Our students play an important role in the development of sustainable societies.

Your support will enable outstanding students with the most need to commence or to continue their studies.
