The University of Bradford Announces Fees for 2012

18 April 11

The University of Bradford has today announced its fees for its full-time undergraduate courses for home/EU students for September 2012.

The University of Bradford has today announced its fees for its full-time undergraduate courses for home/EU students for September 2012.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Mark Cleary, said: "The University of Bradford has set its fees at £9,000 per year to ensure that we can continue to build a strong, sustainable University, with funds to invest in our high-quality learning and teaching environment, and a major focus on employability and delivering high levels of student satisfaction. This will ensure each student gets the highest value from their investment into their education."

The University of Bradford prides itself on its research-informed teaching. Students are taught by academics from around the globe who are knowledge creators, and 80 per cent of those who submitted to the last Research Assessment Exercise are doing world-leading research.  The University, whose staff/student ratios are amongst the best in the country*, has one of the highest proportions of students gaining graduate employment and was recently in the Top 10 in the UK for graduate level jobs.**

The University’s Chair of Council, Paul Jagger, said: "The decision to charge a fee of £9,000 is one that has been made with great reluctance but is set against the context of the devastating cuts to the sector and was reached after considerable discussion and consultation within the University.

"We are committed to attracting a diverse range of students to the University and believe the financial support packages we are developing, coupled with the Government scheme, will help ensure this."

The University of Bradford has been at the leading edge of building a more inclusive higher education environment for over a decade (it was ranked the second most inclusive university in England in 2009/10***) and is recognised locally, regionally, nationally and internationally as a successful University that provides excellent opportunities for all of its students. 

Three out of four undergraduates at Bradford should qualify for some form of financial assistance under the new government support packages. The University of Bradford is committed to continuing its work on raising aspirations and student success and will be investing £5m each year in supporting students from disadvantaged backgrounds.

The University of Bradford’s fee level has been agreed by its Council. It must now be approved by the Office for Fair Access (OFFA).

*The University of Bradford is in the 2nd quartile for Staff/student Ratio's (SSR) in The Independent, The Times and The Guardian League Tables.

*** Data from the Higher Education Statistics Authority showed the University of Bradford had the second highest rate of under-represented groups in higher education – with 52.2 per cent of "young full-time undergraduate entrants in 2009/10" being from these groups.
