Student profile

Sneha studies MSc International Accounting and Finance at Bradford, she shares her experience with us below.


Why did you choose Bradford?
I have always been enthusiastic and passionate about studying and working abroad to experience different cultures, hence I wanted to make sure that my degree is recognised worldwide.

I also wanted to progress my financial skills and was really impressed by the courses provided by Bradford's School of Management. What is more, is that it was one of the few business schools in the world with the triple crown accreditation.

My heart was set on the University of Bradford as it is known for having one of the best Bloomberg labs, which helps students mix theoretical knowledge with practical projects, which is vital for a career in finance.

Career Booster Programme
The Career Booster Programme helps students from all departments to take a week off from their studies and learn skills that are otherwise not provided on their courses.

My time as a student at Bradford
My time in Bradford has been truly amazing and memorable and I would highly recommend this course to aspiring students. Although my course was jut for a year, Bradford has a lot to offer in terms of opportunities and experiences.
