MBA Admissions
University of Bradford
Bradford

Send the Confidential Reference forms to your two referees asking them to forward them to our address (printed on the form).

If you live in the UK or can come here, and have the basic entry requirements, we will ask you to visit the School of Management to meet staff and current MBAs, see the School and have an individual interview and take any tests required. If you are abroad we'll take a decision about entry from your application form, references and any test results. Selection is based on a combination of qualifications, experience, motivation and potential.

We charge no application fee, but ask all overseas students to pay a £2,000 non-returnable deposit to accept a place if an offer is made. This applies even if we make you an unconditional offer. You must confirm your wish to take up the place by paying the deposit within eight weeks of the date you receive our offer letter in the post. The deposit is a pre-payment, not an extra charge, and will be deducted from your tuition fee. It is non-refundable unless you are not successful in meeting the terms of the conditional offer or produce evidence that you were unsuccessful in your application to obtain a visa.
