The societies are really welcoming! The campus is compact and really fun! As for the city, new student pubs are sprouting up everywhere and there's loads of great films to see at the BIFF every year,. It may not be the most glam city in the country, but there’s plenty to see and do in Bradford and it’s great for students.

    I have found that being at a slightly smaller university means that I receive a better learning experience. I know all of my lecturers on a first name basis, and most of them know me. It is easy to be involved, both with the course and with sports and societies and I feel like the university has prepared me well for getting a good job in my field.

    The university of Bradford is a very diverse and vibrant place where everything is at one place and it is easy to get lost in all the activities that are available as there is just so much to do. The academics are very supportive and due to fairly small university everyone can get to know each other and there is always somebody who can support and help with any issues arising. Based on my experience I would recommend university of Bradford to anyone!
