The University of Bedfordshire is situated across Luton and Bedford and is home to 24,000 students with 3,000 being international.

There is a range of societies and sports clubs on offer over both the campuses, from pool and hockey clubs to photography, poker and cheerleading societies as well as lots of opportunities to get involved in fundraising events with RAG.

During the academic year it is used as a lecture theatre but at weekends and university holidays it is home to many performances and open to the general public. The Institute for Media, Arts and Performance was ranked as 2nd for dance and journalism and aims to provide excellent facilities to produce outstanding practitioners for the industry.

Within easy reach of London and right next to well-equipped towns the campuses offer a good balance of being small enough to be friendly with a good sense of community and close enough to bigger hubs of activity and entertainment in Bedford, Luton and London.

Read University of Bedfordshire Reviews
a poor experience overall, consistently poor communication and organisation, especially when training for a career where those are so vital. Could consder vetting applcants more thoroughly as there were some real problems in 1st and second year. General lack of enthusiasm or consistency from staff. Some excelent lecturers, but let down by overall experience. The placements have helped far more than anything, although that is always going to be the case. The University can only give you the theoretical base for your work, placements are where you really get the chance to learn and gain an understanding of the job. The quality of lectures and the overall exprience has been poor, with very poor orgnisation, communication and focus on learning. Some excelent lecturers with real knowledge and skill, as well as the means to pass this on to students, but they are in the minority. Overall, I regret studying at the UoB, and would urge anyone to reconsider applying here.
My experience at the University of Bedfordshire has been excellent so far. I am really enjoying my course and the possibility to work with people coming from over the world. The University’s facilities are great, especially the library that is opened 24/24 during the Academic year. Teachers are very friendly and always available to provide you any support. They really make my lessons engaging and interesting. There are also many extracurricular activities, including the possibility to join societies, sports team or just relax in the Student Hub.
I always wonder why upon state of art facilities,University of Bedfordshire sits low on university ranking. It wasn't long before I discovered the reason there are few good academicians in the school but many end up killing intellectual ambition of students particularly at post graduate level, inconsistent grading criteria and feedback,institutionalised racism and lots.With very good grades from one of 10 best Universities in the world,my academic ambition almost ended with biased grading system of some lecturers in faculty of health and social sciences! To prove my competence, I opted for another masters in a bigger university in the earth of London with more world class tutors,I graduated with Distinction.unibeds gives survey form to rank lecturers after two or three session out of ten to avoid exposing their tutors but never repeated such survey after session with each lecturer. ...love Luton,come unibeds, have good academic ambition try somewhere else!
Worst University in the UK. If you really want to invest to your future career avoid this Uni at any cost. They only care about your money and you don't get serve as a student. Education staff don't care about students and for some reason they give more opportunities and care more about International student's. The give an advantage to Chinese people for a example they allow them to have their books open during their examination test which this thing is not allow to other students. This is very unfair. Even the university staff at the information desk are not being trained well enough as they don't speak fluently english and they have zero knowledge of their duties. If you don't have any other choice an not being accepted by any other University don't worry. You can apply next year for right University because if you go to UNIVERSITY OF BEDFORDSHIRE you might ended up as a drop out, like a lot of people do. Think wisely before taking such an important decision for yourself.
I think its not that I like Luton.I think that Luton airport and particulary easy jet should become local company for some years. I.E flights from the uk based planes in the UK.I mean that someone from Europe cannot make a stop at a UK airport with easy jet But he can make a stop to anyother countries. University of Bedfordshire agree should step out the university rankings. As a student I always choose the most expensive ticket to buy and quality value strongs irons.
I think that the University of Bedfordshire should step out the UK University rankings for some years. It should be a local university to recruit from Leeds Edinburgh,Aberdeen etc. Should step Times,Guardian,complete.Might and other universities step out the university guide to accept international recruitment that reflects a negative perspective.
If I could do it all again... I would do something else instead. Poor teaching environment, inconsistent lecturers and marking. Assignment grades and feedback are almost always late, and guidance on assignments can be very poor, which wouldn't be a problem if the lecturers would then clarify the requirements. Some lectures and lecturers are very good, but the experience on the whole was very poor and I regret my choice to study here... Live and learn.
So far I had a positive experience and do not regret having Bedfordshire as my first choice. The law team is fantastic and very professional !! My lecturers gave me a lot of support as a first year student and improved my confidence.
