What their Students Say

“I chose Bradford as I love the city, and I loved what the University had to offer. Its compact campus and state-of-the-art facilities really appealed to me. I also have family living in the city, so it was the perfect choice for me.

“The city itself is fantastic, and is packed full of beautiful historical buildings, museums and places to eat. I love the history of the city as well as all the neighbouring towns, like Saltaire. There’s a lot to do here, which I don’t think a lot of people realise”.

“Applying for a visa and saying goodbye to my family was pretty tough, but I’m a traveller so it wasn’t a big deal for me. I struggled in the first few months when I arrived, but my dad visited me, and I became much more comfortable and managed to make new friends from all over the world.

“The University of Bradford supported me from the very beginning, from the moment I was picked up from the airport upon my arrival, to the excellent induction process of getting to know my tutors, exploring campus, and getting familiar with my modules”.
