The University of Bradford

Inspired by our past to help shape your future

With over 50 years of academic excellence behind us as a University, we continue to grow our international reputation, course provision, and research impact.

We have always been pioneers in developing new course subjects and modes of teaching, reflecting and anticipating the needs of employers, our students, and of society as a whole; our course provision and research strategy is designed in response to the changing business, social, scientific and environmental landscape.

Today our associations and networks span the globe; from strong links to leading local and national employers, to academic partner institutions, to the World Technology Universities Network, we are an outward facing institution committed to the creation, dissemination, and application of knowledge for the benefit of global society.

We have an alumni community of more than 140,000 graduates in over 175 countries worldwide.

"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, former Prime Minister and our first Chancellor
