University of Bradford
Bradford has always been a forward-thinking, modern and student orientated University with a thriving and vibrant student community. We have a firm commitment to confronting inequality and celebrating diversity.
Our mission of ‘Making Knowledge Work’ means our students’ future is our top priority. With our excellent facilities and staff, you can be sure that Bradford is a first-class choice for your chosen area of study.
We have always been pioneering in our course provision, being the first British University to offer a Peace Studies degree and the first University outside London to offer part-time degree courses.
Why choose Brunel University?
Applying for an undergraduate course
All applications to full-time undergraduate degree courses must be submitted via UCAS’s (Universities and Colleges Admissions Service) online facility.
- For entry in September 2013, you can submit your application to UCAS anytime from September 2012 to June 2013. However, UCAS has set different application deadlines for different courses, most notably 15 October, 15 January and 24 March. Applications received after the course application deadline cannot be guaranteed equal academic consideration. It is advisable to apply as early as possible, especially if you are applying for a popular course.
- It is even more important to start your visa application early as the process in some countries can be slow. The University will send a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) Statement to international students who need to apply for a student visa. You will need the CAS reference number to apply for your visa. You will need to complete your administrative, immigration and financial arrangements well before you leave for Bradford.
- Special arrangements may be made if you are applying from a college which has a partnership agreement with the University. Your college should have more information on this or contact the University’s International Office if you think this applies to you.
- If you are only applying for one course at one university, it is worth bearing in mind that it is simpler (and less expensive) to apply via UCAS.
- The UCAS code for the University of Bradford is: BRADF B56.
All applicants must be a current student at an overseas university or college of higher education and have completed at least one year of study at their home institution. The minimum academic requirement is a GPA of at least 2.8 out of 4.0 (or equivalent).
All students are required to meet the University’s minimum English language requirements by taking either an IELTS or another recognised English language qualification at an appropriate level, unless they are a native of an English-speaking country.
Fees for your course will vary according to the subject, level of study and whether you are an *EU or international student.
