To this day, the University of Bradford aims to develop courses and curricula that reflect the requirements of the modern world. The university has technology at the heart of its approach and exploits its strong links with industry to shape its courses to the needs of employers. Consequently, Bradford's strengths are in physical sciences and engineering, life sciences and health studies, management and business, international relations, politics and social impact.

The University of Bradford provides high-quality teaching underpinned by cutting-edge research with practical applications to solve tomorrow’s problems. Bradford collaborates closely with local, regional, national, and multinational businesses from across all sectors of the global economy. From employer engagement initiatives, to overseas partnerships including those in Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan and India, these global and local partnerships inform the university’s curriculum and provide inspirational work placements.

Bradford is a great place to live and study. Although it is one of the ten largest cities in Britain, it is small enough to be friendly, compact enough to be easily manageable, and yet large enough to have all the facilities of a thriving, modern city.  Overall the University has a close-knit, friendly atmosphere, enabling students to get to know each other quickly. The University of Bradford Students' Union (UBU) is run for students by students to provide the vast majority of non-academic activities and support on campus. The city campus fosters a close-knit community and is a mix of innovative and sustainable new developments and green open space. For students studying management and law related subjects, the school of management parkland campus is just 25 minutes' walk or a free bus ride from the city campus, where historic buildings stand side-by-side with the latest state-of-the-art facilities.

If a student’s first language is not English, they will need to provide proof of their English proficiency before being admitted onto any undergraduate or postgraduate courses.

Some of the IELTS requirements are listed below:

  • The standard university requirement is IELTS 6.0 with no sub-test less than 5.0 (or equivalent). However, if students require a Tier 4 (student) visa to study they will need to meet the UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) department's requirement which is currently IELTS 6.0 with no sub-test less than 5.5.

  • Some courses may require a higher level of English language proficiency than the university standard. Please check the university website for details.

  • The University of Bradford has a range of English language courses students can enroll on before starting their academic course at the University of Bradford. The 40, 30 or 20-week programmes are designed to raise a student’s level of English by half an IELTS band, for example from 5.5 to 6.0. The courses also help prepare international students for life in the UK and at university, while providing an effective and enjoyable way to improve their English.

Our minimum entry requirements (equivalent to ABB at A level) are as follows:

UG: Standard XII (84-87%) Best of 4 academic subjects , to include any pre-requisite subjects at 85%

PG: 3, 4 or 5 year Bachelor degree from an approved Indian university. Grades range from 60%-70% depending on the institution. MBA applicants also require a minimum of 3, managerial level work experience.
