The institution that would eventually become Bradford College was founded in 1832. Over the next 170 years the College has gone from strength to strength and, after many merges and expansions, is now the second largest of its kind in the country with a student body of around 30,000.
Bradford College has offered vocational degree courses for more than 30 years. Many of the higher education programmes carry professional qualifications recognised by industry and commerce, and there are often opportunities for students to gain work experience during their time at the College.
Bradford is in West Yorkshire, the biggest county in England and located in the north of the country, three hours away from London and three hours from Edinburgh.
The nearest airports are Manchester and Leeds Bradford international airports. A meet-and-greet service collects international students from both airports.
The English Language Centre offers English language courses that attract students from around the world. The College is a founder member of BASELT (British Association of State English Language Teaching) and all the language courses are validated by the British Council through the English in Britain Accreditation Scheme.
All undergraduate and postgraduate courses offered by Bradford College are accredited by Leeds Metropolitan University, while other higher education and vocational qualifications are awarded by Edexcel (BTEC) and other national organisations.
The College’s halls of residence are only five to 10 minutes walk away from the main college building and offer accommodation for approximately 1,000 students.
All accommodation at Bradford College is self-catering with cookers and fridge-freezers provided in kitchen areas, a laundry in the main building and a refectory which is open during the week for meals and refreshments.
International students often choose to be housed within the homestay system, particularly students studying at the English Language Centre, the European Centre or those on European exchange schemes.
