Academic sessions

Our academic sessions are a fantastic way to find out more about lots of different subjects, to help you think about what you might want to study at university. Many of our academics will also be running sessions focussing on their research, which will help you to show your passion for your subject when writing your personal statement later this year. Whereas the academic sessions have come to an end for the 2020-21 academic year, please visit the webinar page on our website for a full list of new sessions to be posted in September/October 2021, covering a diversity of topics: https://www.bradford.ac.uk/webinars/

Progression scheme

The University of Bradford Progression Scheme is designed to benefit undergraduate applicants whose personal and educational circumstances mean they could be less likely to receive an offer based on our standard entry criteria. Full eligibility criteria can be viewed here: https://www.bradford.ac.uk/applicants/progression-scheme/. If you are eligible for the progression scheme, some of our webinars will include a short question related to the topic for you to go away and answer and return via an online form. Following the submission of this online form, before the given deadline, this will count as attendance at one of the two outreach events. Please note this is only for selected webinars, for full details of which webinars can count towards the progression scheme, please visit: https://www.bradford.ac.uk/applicants/progression-scheme/outreach-workshops/
