University Profile

The University of Bradford was established in the 1860s, but it received its Royal Charter in 1966. The University is located in Bradford, which is one of the ten largest cities in Britain. Today, the University has around 10,000 students.

The University of Bradford has eight academic schools, into which its teaching is divided. This includes School of Archaeological, Geographical, and Environmental Sciences (SAGE), School of Engineering, Design, and Technology (EDT), School of Health Studies, School of Informatics, School of Life Sciences, School of Lifelong Education and Development (SLED), School of Management, School of Social and International Studies (SSIS).

Apart from the regular undergraduate courses in a wide range of subjects, the University of Bradford has also launched a suite of Foundation Degrees that are modern courses directly linked to the world of work. The University offers these foundation degrees in collaboration with employers and Further Education Colleges. This is a work-based qualification that allows the students to earn and learn simultaneously. It is a higher education qualification that is at a similar level to HND and NVQ level 4. The next level up is ‘Honours’ level, which covers degrees with titles such as Bachelor of Arts, BA (Hons), Bachelor of Science, BSc (Hons), or Bachelor of Engineering, BEng (Hons). Students can study for their Foundation Degree either as a part-time or a full-time student.
