The University of Bradford

The University of Bradford boasts more than 50 years of academic excellence.

We are home to one of the oldest business schools in the UK, which currently holds the prestigious triple-crown of accreditations. Our research in Archaeology, Computer Science and Informatics as well as Business and Management, the Allied Health professions, Nursing, Pharmacy and Chemistry were rated internationally excellent or world-leading by the most recent REF in 2021.

You’ll learn from academic and industry experts who are shaping the future of their sectors, and you'll learn in world-class facilities - we’ve invested millions of pounds in high-tech learning environments, such as our motion capture studio and Bloomberg Trading Room.

Our curriculum is designed with input from these industry experts and partners, which means you’ll develop skills that are highly valued by employers and gain plenty of hands-on practical experience along the way. Many of our courses have professional, statutory or regulatory body accreditation or approval too, giving you the best possible start to your career.

With 150,000 graduates spanning over 179 countries, we continue to grow our alumni community and international reputation as an outstanding provider of higher education.

Compact, friendly and minutes from the city centre, our campus is a place where great things happen.

Bradford is an exciting place to be a student. It's creative, diverse, and there's always something to get involved in.

The Green is right at the heart of our campus. It's the University's recommended student accommodation.
