You will find a diverse mix of people from different backgrounds, faiths, nationalities and ages all sharing the closely-knit city centre campus. The mixture of people in a compact space creates a vibrant community atmosphere where people form lifelong friendships with students from across the globe.

The University of Bradford is an ‘old’ university, having received its Royal Charter in 1966, and with origins dating back to the 1860s.
