Information

About The University of Bradford

Address and Location

The University of Bradford is a public research university in Bradford, West Yorkshire. The university is set over two campuses; one in Bradford city centre, and a school of management on the outskirts of the town.
 
 
 
 

Background and History

The university's origins date back to 1832 and the founding of the city Mechanics Institute. In 1882 the institute became Bradford Technical College and then, in 1957, Bradford Institute of Technology, allowing it to run Higher Education programmes. Construction of the Richmond Building, the largest on campus, began in 1963. A Charter of Incorporation was granted three years later, thereby creating the University of Bradford as it is today.

Location and Accessibility

By Road: Bradford is accessible from all directions using the M62 and M606. From the M606, turn left into Horton Grange Road, then left again into Legrams Lane.

By Rail: Bradford Interchange and Forster Square stations are well connected to the National Rail network, although journeys from most directions involve changing at Leeds. Most services arrive at the Interchange, from here, the university is a 15-minute walk away; turn left into Bridge Street, walk through the city park and past the Alahambra Theatre to reach the campus.

Accessibility: The majority of facilities are wheelchair-accessible; students are advised to get in touch with the university Disability Service to discuss their requirements before applying. The university is currently working to extend the hearing loop network on campus.

What's on Offer

BA, BSc, BEng, MPhys, MEng, MSc, MA

Entry Requirements

Accommodation at The University of Bradford

University Accommodation

Halls of Residence are provided at The Green, a purpose-built £40 million student village at the City Campus. Types of room vary from single to shared, with a range of pricing.  

Private Accommodation

Compared to most university towns in the UK, privately rented accommodation in Bradford is inexpensive, and there are plenty of houses for friends to rent together close to campus. The university works in conjunction with local landlords to recommend houses for students.

Courses & Fees

Academic Strengths and Research Profile

Facilities at The University of Bradford

Academic Facilities

Academic facilities are of a high standard following the university's recent investment of £120 million to refurbish both of its campuses. Libraries are well-stocked and IT systems are up-to-date. Wi-fi is provided across all sites.

Other on-site Amenities

The redevelopment of both campuses includes major renovation to the university's Student Central, which is now home to new student union offices, study zones and bars. The university also hosts a student support centre, The Hub. It forms the basis of most support services and students are encouraged to consider it a one-stop shop for all their needs.  

Medical and Social Care

The active student union community means students are never short of new opportunities or support, while the on-campus entertainment venue keeps the student community well-integrated. The university also has its own student medical centre and childcare services, while those with additional needs are well-served by the Bradford Disability Services team.  

What's on in the Area

Bradford is made up of a compact city centre surrounded by a diverse range of towns and villages. Whether you enjoy clubs and bars or long walks outdoors, Bradford offers an ideal combination of beautiful Yorkshire countryside and bustling urban sprawl.  

Moving On

Bradford University provides a dedicated careers service, offering students advice and support when searching for work-experience and postgraduate employment.

Did you know?

The university's first Chancellor was former prime minister Harold Wilson. Kate Swann, former CEO of WHSmith studied at Bradford. The university was also the first in the world to establish a Peace Studies department, for the study of conflict-resolution.

Is the University of Bradford right for me?

If you want to study in the Midlands but are concerned by the size of the universities in Leeds, Birmingham and Manchester, Bradford offers a less hectic lifestyle with the same excellent transport links to the rest of the country. Being smaller, the university community feels tight-knit and support services are excellent. For something similar, try Sheffield University.
