Overall, university is okay with good city life. Provides enough computer labs for 1st and 2nd year students, however, for final year it is not enough with only 1 small dedicated lab where if lectures were to be taught student would have to leave the lab; hindering progress.
The campus and everything on it is brilliant. Most societies are very good, though some are a little weird about people joining. The SU are amazing, other than the sabbatical officers who spend most of their time harassing people or pretending they actually do something. Careers idk never used it. The internet is very fast, and WiFi is available everywhere on the campus
I should have chosen a better university, 4 hours a week for 9,000, ridiculous. The teachers don’t know what they’re doing. One module tutor changed the assignment 4/5 times within 2 months, and we still didn’t know what to do.
The city is bad, the university is average. Main positive is how cheap it is to live there, but it’s obvious why the city is that cheap. Made good friends though through house parties as lots of bars have been shut down recently.
I had an amazing experience as an international student due to the following aspects: social experience, networking opportunities, business opportunities, library facilities, IT facilities, student interaction, friendly environment.
Bradford has been a whirlwind but I sadly wouldn't advise coming here. Lecturers are friendly but what comes with that is they're very unprofessional. A few of my lecturers made up assignments saying they were graded and infact never existed - making us do twice the work for no reason. Facilities are okay too however good luck finding a decent quiet IT room to study in as there are very few places. You receive hardly any important notifications from the Uni after the first year, and in order to get any important information you have to ask around for it yourself, for example Evision, the portal where your results are released, wasnt updated until 2 months after it should have been and no body told anyone about why our grades werent there. Exam rooms are terrible, invigilators being rude and taking calls in the middle of exams, and other students banging on windows of the exam hall putting students off. Its just a very stressful environment especially if youre a commuting student.
Although the city may not be the most exciting, the uni itself is amazing. Next level facilities and bounds of opportunities to further your knowledge and practical experience. There are many transport links to get you to Manchester, Leeds and other more exciting cities.
Bradford University is very disorganised, they don’t tell you information when you need to know or bother telling you at all. It no longer has much staff left. I did not get any choice in my second year modules, like I was told I was going to. Module choices changed half way my degree, I did not get to do some modules I wanted to. I don’t know what I am paying for. The only positive is the staff are very friendly.
My experience was that they were VERY negligent towards me. I did my part to contribute to societies, the union, internships through the careers department, attended lecturers religiously, however received no accolades or support, in comparison to some other students. Personally, I wouldn't recommend it
Despite the low reviews, bradford overall has a really comfortable and homy vibe! Its like a small village, may not be the best in terms of resources and the like but it certainly has something larger universities don’t. All in all, i think anyone who goes to bradford will be pleasently surprised:D
AVOID! This university is unsafe. In the past 3 months there has been a gang of masked men attacking students on the university campus who have never been caught and two days ago a female was sexually assaulted on campus. I was followed home twice, many friends have been followed home/attacked. There is one man who sits outside accommodation and tries to grab girls but uni never do anything about it. This uni is unsafe and I cannot wait to leave.
University is loosing its positions. Tutors are leaving, half of those remaining are far from being engaging and are quite weak. Conditions are deteriorating without any satisfactory explanation. There are continuous delays in marking, books are no more provided. Very sad to be part of this now.
Great facilities on the campus and in the halls. It's a shame that I was put with quite possibly the worst flatmates in existence! But the warden team is always there to support you with any issues. The wifi was very stable but very slow at times and does cost a lot to upgrade to a faster speed
I've been here for 5 years and loved it! Aspects of the University have improved in that time such as the facilities but the extra curricular elements still have a way to go. The University has a strong family feel to it with students coming from all over the world.
