Applicants

Your future starts here

You're not on your own once you've made your application to the University of Bradford - we're here to support you all the way through to enrolment.

You still have plenty of opportunities to visit campus, and a dedicated Applicant Support Team to provide advice and guidance.

Below you'll find some information on your next steps, and some handy tips to help make your move to university life go smoothly.

Applicant Experience Days

Once you apply to us you may be invited to an Applicant Experience Day where you'll experience how the course is taught, meet course academics and maybe even your future coursemates.

Sort out your accommodation

If you’re moving away from home you can generally apply for accommodation before your place is confirmed. You can apply to The Green, our student village on campus, as soon as we make you an offer – your room will be held for you and finalised once your place is confirmed.
