This page shows the name and date of birth you supplied on your application form. The details that show here need to match the details on your ID which you will upload later in the process.

Your name on the system must show as it does in your ID but you can set your preferred ‘known as’ name. This can be changed at any time in e:Vision. 

If you change your name or marry whilst you are on your programme you can email a copy of your deed poll/marriage certificate to the Student Records team at records@bradford.ac.uk and they will change it for you.

Current Home address

Your current home address shown here is the one you supplied on your application form and is the place you live when you are not at university. During your time at university you can update these details at any time in e:Vision and it is your responsibility to ensure these are accurate and up to date.

Current Contact or Term Time address

The address you enter here should be where you will be living when you are at university, please complete this if you know it and ensure you add the post code.

If you are not sure what your address will be please leave this as your home address for now. When you do know your address please amend the details in e:Vision. It is your responsibility to ensure these details are kept up to date.

In this box we are asking what type of accommodation you will be staying in whilst you are at university and whether it is owned or rented. This box must be completed before you can continue.

Current Emergency contact details 

This page shows the name and contact details of the person you would like us to contact on your behalf in case of an emergency. 

As part of our approach to support your safety and wellbeing, we ask all of our students to provide us with details of at least one person you would like us to contact in case of an emergency. These pages show the name and contact details of the people you would like us to contact on your behalf in case of an emergency. We will ask you to provide two emergency contacts just in case one of them is unavailable. 

Please provide one person on each page. 

We ask you to provide this information so that it is available in the unlikely event that a situation arises where we consider your health, wellbeing or welfare to be at risk.  

Whilst it is your choice of whom you nominate, usually your emergency contact will be a parent, family member or guardian. Most importantly, they must be in a position to be able and willing to act on your behalf in the event of a serious incident or emergency where we consider your health, wellbeing or welfare to be at risk. This person does not need to be based in the UK. (If you are  under the age of 18, at the time of enrolling on your programme, please ensure one of your emergency contacts is your UK Guardian). 

You should nominate at least one emergency contact but we would encourage you to provide the details of two where possible.  

You should ensure that your emergency contact is: 

  1. aware that they have been nominated and that their contact details have been given to the University for this purpose;  
  2. readily contactable - wherever possible, please provide a mobile phone number as well as a landline so that contact can be made quickly;  
  3. if possible, able to speak English.  

Your emergency contact details are held on the University’s student information system, in accordance with the University’s Student Privacy Notice 

We recognise that you are an individual, with an expectation that information about you is held securely and not shared inappropriately. We will always balance these considerations with your personal circumstances before using the details you have provided and sharing information about you with your emergency contact. It is unlikely that during your time as a student we would ever need to get in touch with your emergency contact and share any personal information, but wherever possible we would try and get your consent first.  

Under current data protection legislation, we are permitted to share personal information about you without your consent where we believe that this is necessary to protect your vital (immediate) interests or those of another person and where it is not possible to obtain your consent. This usually means that you will have been involved in, or that there is a risk of, an incident or an emergency situation where we believe you or others may come to serious or lasting harm.  

The following are examples of circumstances in which we might get in touch with your emergency contact and share personal information, but each case is considered on its own merits. These examples include but are not limited to:  

  • You are exhibiting behaviour that may pose a serious risk to your safety and wellbeing or that of others.  
  • You have attended or been admitted to hospital in an emergency.  
  • You have suffered a serious physical injury, including significant self-harm.  
  • You cease to engage with your studies and we have been unable to contact you to confirm your safety and wellbeing.  
  • You have not recently been seen in your accommodation, we have been unable to contact you and you are considered missing.  
  • You have an ongoing serious illness and you appear to be deteriorating.  
  • You are experiencing a mental health crisis.  
  • A third party has reported significant concerns and we are not able to contact you to establish your safety and wellbeing. 
  • You have been the victim of a serious crime.  

In the event that there are concerns about the health, wellbeing or welfare of a student who is under 18 years old, the University is always obliged to contact the student's parent or guardian.  

Any decision to get in touch with your emergency contact or to share personal information without your consent would be taken by the Associate Director for Success and Wellbeing or their designated nominee, and, informed by advice from the Head of Data Protection Officer, Student Life Manager Safeguarding Lead and Counselling and Mental Health Service Manager where possible. We would inform you of this, unless to do so would increase the risk of harm to you or another person. Whenever we share personal information about a student with their emergency contact, we keep a record of the justification for this decision, the nature of the information shared, with whom, and the time and date of the disclosure. 

You can update your emergency contact details in e:Vision at any time and it is your responsibility to ensure these details are kept up to date. 

Second Emergency contact details 

On this page you should enter the details of your second emergency contact.  

We ask you to provide two emergency contacts just in case one of them is unavailable.  

Further personal details 

On this page we ask for details about your ethnicity, any disability issues you might have, your religious beliefs, sexual orientation and gender identity.  

This information is completely confidential and is protected under Data Protection legislation. UK Universities collect information for the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). Your answers help HESA to monitor equal opportunities issues in the higher education sector and support higher education providers (HEPs) in meeting their obligations under the Equality Act 2010. 

We need to know about your disability, including mental health to enable us to arrange reasonable adjustments in relation to your studies.  

Around 15% of the population have a disability, whether you can see it or not. The University offers a dedicated, confidential Advisory service to help students to access the reasonable adjustments they are entitled to, based on their condition or impairment and their programme of study.  

Help and support is available. The process is evidence-based, and you will need to register with the Disability or Counselling and Mental Health Service.  

You work in partnership with your Advisor to agree what is reasonable and proportionate considerate of your condition or impairment, to develop a Learner Support Profile (LSP). Only once you have approved the content, will be it accessible to staff who teach on your course If you decline to disclose your disability, specific, individualised reasonable adjustments cannot be implemented.  

Please select ‘Two or more impairments and/or disabling medical conditions’.  

If you have indicated you have more than one disability you will be asked a follow up question to gather further data in order to ensure the University is able to support you fully during your studies. 

More information about eligibility and how to apply can be found on the UCAS website. 

An Education Health and Care Plan may have been issued to a disabled pupil at School or College. As part of the Children and Families Act 2014, the local authority must ensure a person has the support, care, and reasonable adjustments necessary to access learning and fulfil their potential. For those who progress to further education, this CAN remain ‘live’ until the person reaches age 25, as long as they are making educational progress. For those who progress to University, plans are ceased. As a young adult, applications must be made for Disabled Support Allowance (DSA) and Personal independent Payments (PIPs) to secure the funding to continue to access support. Please contact the Disability Service if you have any questions.  

If you would prefer not to answer you can select ‘Prefer not to say’ in all cases. 

Multiple Disabilities

This page will only show if you have indicated you have more than one disability.

Please select 'Yes' for any impairments and/or disabling medical conditions you have and 'No' for any that do not apply. 

No, you must select yes or no for each question as appropriate.

Protected Characteristics 

On this page we ask you if you have ever been in care, are currently estranged from your parents, if you provide care to others or have parental or guardian responsibilities.  

This information is completely confidential and is protected under Data Protection legislation. UK Universities collect information for the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). Your answers help HESA to monitor equal opportunities issues in the higher education sector and support higher education providers (HEPs) in meeting their obligations under the Equality Act 2010.  

A care leaver is any adult who spent time in care as a child (i.e. under the age of 18). Such care could be in foster care, residential care (mainly children's homes), or other arrangements outside the immediate or extended family. 

UCAS defines an estranged student as someone who no longer has the support of their family due to a breakdown in their relationship which has led to ceased contact. This might mean their biological, step or adoptive parents, or wider family members who have been responsible for supporting them in the past. More details can be found on the UCAS and Student Loans Company websites. 

UCAS defines a student with caring responsibility as someone who is responsible for providing unpaid care to someone who has, for example: a long-term illness; a disability; a mental health condition; an addiction; temporary care needs following, for example, an accident or operation.  

The caring responsibilities question does not include childcare unless your child has additional disability, health or support needs. Childcare is covered in the following question.

If you would prefer not to answer you can select ‘Prefer not to say’ in all cases. 

If you tick to share the information it will be shared with your personal academic tutor and other relevant University staff, so we are aware of your circumstances and can offer you additional support. This may include additional financial support. 

Educational / Other Background Details

On this page we are asking for further academic and background details. We also ask if you are a child from a military family or a commuter student and if you are interested in the Laptop Support Fund. 

This information is completely confidential and is protected under the Data Protection Act. UK Universities collect information for the Higher Education Statistics Agency (HESA). Your answers help HESA to monitor equal opportunities issues in the higher education sector and support higher education providers (HEPs) in meeting their obligations under the Equality Act 2010. 

Please select the one you feel is the most relevant to you. If you feel none of them are you can select one of the following; 

  • Not Known 
  • Not Stated/Occupation Not Listed 
  • Other Not Specified 
  • Unemployed 

If your parent(s) or carer(s) is serving as a Regular or Reservist in the UK Armed Forces, or has done so in the past, the University would like to know to help with supporting you in your studies.  

As a child from a military family you may have moved schools more often than most students, or you may have felt unable to participate in extra-curricular activities and this can impact on your wellbeing in Higher Education. 

Further guidance and details of further support available can be found on the UCAS website.   

The University defines a commuter student as someone whose home and term time address are both the same and travels into the University for their studies. 

If you would prefer not to answer you can select ‘Prefer not to say’ where applicable.

Once received by Student Finance/SAAS, this process can take up to six weeks to be updated by them and the university should automatically receive notification once the funding has been transferred to the University of Bradford, and your tuition fee loan should then show on your account. 
  • If you have applied for your funding from Student Finance but this has not yet been approved, this will not show on your account until this has been approved by Student Finance/SAAS. Please check your Student Finance/SAAS accounts for any requests for evidence/information they need to continue to process your application. Once Student Finance has approved your application, the University should receive confirmation the next working day to confirm the tuition fee loan amount they will pay to the university directly and this will be updated on your account for you. Until the university receives confirmation of your tuition fee loan, you are responsible for payment of your fees so you may be required to make a payment whilst your funding is processed (this payment will then be refunded once Student Finance/SAAS confirm your tuition fee loan for the full fee charge). 

Please logon to your Student Finance online account / contact Student Finance/SAAS to update the amount of tuition fee loan you have applied for. This is normally updated by Student Finance within 48 hours but can take up to six weeks in some cases. In the ‘Tuition Fee Loan amount requested’ field, please enter the new amount you have applied for and submit your current Student Finance/SAAS funding notification. 

If you have studied at Higher Education (degree) level before, you may not be eligible for a tuition fee loan from Student Finance/SAAS. Students with extenuating circumstances can apply for an additional year of tuition fee support from Student Finance/SAAS by submitting evidence of Compelling Personal Reasons (CPR) to them.

Please complete the fields on this page and submit the notification you received from Student Finance/SAAS to confirm they have received your CPR request and evidence. Until the university receives confirmation your tuition fee loan has been approved, you are responsible for payment of your fees so you may be required to make a payment whilst your funding is processed (this payment will then be refunded once Student Finance/SAAS confirm your tuition fee loan for the full fee charge). 

Pay by US Federal Loan

Once all steps have been completed, you should email us-ca-loans@bradford.ac.uk to obtain a valid cost of attendance and agree a loan.  Your agreed federal loan will be disbursed in 3 separate instalments as detailed in your US Loan Approval Letter.

Outstanding tuition fees will be paid directly to the University in 3 equal instalments via Western Union.  Please note, this process is an internal one, and does not require your involvement.  

Payment by a Sponsor 

Family members and/or friends will not be accepted as your sponsor for fee payment, but they can make payment on your behalf

You can submit your sponsorship information using this page to the university. You will need to complete all fields and upload your proof of your funding before you can continue to the next page of your enrolment. 

If accepted, the details of your sponsorship should be added to your account within five working days. We cannot authorise a sponsor if we have not received a valid sponsor letter or purchase order form. If there are any issues with your sponsor information, the university will email you to advise of this and will provide you with further information why this has not been accepted.

After completing online enrolment

The University of Bradford has an award winning process linked to the diagnosis of dyslexia and other Specific Learning Differences (SpLDs).  This is a fully funded, four stage process starting with the Screening Questionnaire. A highly confidential, automated process uses the responses you give to recommend the next step in the process.  

Each academic year around 250 students are diagnosed or report indicators of conditions that benefit from educational support.  

Students with an SpLD are as likely as their peers to gain a ‘good degree’ at the University of Bradford. 

All students who enrol with the University are invited to complete the initial screening questionnaire. Although it is optional, we do encourage all students to complete the process. Once you have completed the initial questionnaire, the recommendation might be no further action, or where appropriate you will be invited to progress to the QuickScan initial assessment tool, an internationally renowned on-line assessment for SpLD. The outcome of the QuickScan determines if you are referred on for a full assessment with a specialist, qualified assessor. 

We do encourage new entrants to complete the initial screening questionnaire on or before starting their studies. Dyslexia and other Specific Learning Differences are often referred to as ‘hidden’. This is because you will have developed strategies that ‘disguise’ it. Research has determined that students may benefit from support to develop new strategies as they progress through higher levels of learning. Students can take screening questionnaire multiple times, but can only take the QuickScan assessment once.   

Please contact the welcome helpline on 01274 236161 or email welcome@bradford.ac.uk
