The University of Bradford

About

Inspired by our past to help shape your future

"You can be confident of your University developing in the future with the same dynamism as has been shown in the past – educating men and women who receive education and training relevant to the needs of our changing society."

Harold Wilson, the then British Prime Minister, who was the first Chancellor of the University of Bradford

With almost 50 years of academic excellence behind us as a University, we have continued to grow our international reputation and course provision. We have always been pioneers in developing new course subjects, reflecting and anticipating the needs of employers, our students, and of society as a whole.

Bradford was the first university outside London to offer part-time degree courses, and our courses are designed in response to the changing business, social, scientific and environmental landscape.

From the first modern Business School, which has an international reputation, to the first Peace Studies degree, we continue to offer relevant, practical and useful learning for all our students. 

Today our associations with employers have expanded across the globe. Our collaborations range from associations with local employers through our employer engagement initiatives, to overseas partnerships including those in Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan and India.
