The University is committed to helping all its students to lead fulfilling lives, become global citizens, and make a difference to the world.
Bradford collaborates closely with local, regional, national and multinational businesses from across all sectors of the global economy ranging from associations with local employers through its employer engagement initiatives, to overseas partnerships including those in Singapore, Poland, Malaysia, Pakistan and India. Global and local partnerships inform the University’s curriculum and provide inspirational work placements.
Students, particularly international students, who do not have the necessary qualifications for enrolling onto a degree course, can apply for the Certificate of International Foundation Studies. The programme gives you the opportunity to progress onto a wide range of undergraduate degrees across all subject areas of the University.
The University of Bradford invests over £4million in scholarships each year, and there are a range of scholarships depending on your circumstances. For information on the different scholarships and application details see bradford.ac.uk/scholarships.
Throughout most of September, the International Office runs an orientation programme until the beginning of term, supported by current students, as well as an International Student Information Point for more personalised advice in the first few days.

The University offers free English classes throughout the year to international students. Students can also get individual assignment support from our Language school during their study.
There are many different international events promoted and organised by the International Office and Student Union throughout the year to make sure they have a fantastic time here.
