About University of Bradford

The University of Bradford is a British public research university located in the city of Bradford, West Yorkshire, England. The University of Bradford received its Royal Charter in 1966 but its origins date back to the 1860s. With almost 50 years of academic excellence, The University of Bradford has grown its international reputation and course provision. The university has always been pioneers in developing new course subjects, reflecting and anticipating the needs of employers, its students, and of society as a whole.

The university can be divided into academic schools which are School of Computing, Informatics and Media, School of Engineering, Design anf Technology, School of Health Studies, School of Life Sciences, School of Management (including Law), and School of Social & International Studies. With the mission of 'Making Knowledge Work', the students' future is Bradford's top priority. Today the university's associations with employers have expanded across the globe. Collaborations range from associations with local employers through employer engagement initiatives, to overseas partnerships including those in Singapore, Brunei, Malaysia, Pakistan and India.
