“Distance Learning”

published 15/09/2002

Studying from home

Do not have the personal touch

Well Im just about to start on my second module of my degree at Bradford University and I don't live anywhere near Bradford. The reason being is that it is a distance learning course which I can do part time whilst working full time. I wanted to study a subject that was related to my work and...

cheap, friendly

Management students are somewhat separated from the main campus, with the management centre being on the opposite side of the town. In latter years of the course, only the language classes were held on campus, so if you're doing a pure management course you may consider living in the heaton area...

Not for me

One only - Bradford is cheap.

Many, read opinions.

Having been temporarily a student at Bradford University, I can assure you it's not a nice place to go to. I manage to get a transfer out, but I was lucky. Bradford itself is a fairly quiet city, with an awful architecture and planning. The University of Bradford is a bottom of the class...

Poor outdated attitude of staff, poor PG standards...

I was briefly a postgraduate student at this institution - I would NOT recommend it to ANYONE! My experience of this university has not been positive at all. Whilst it's facilities (e.g. physical environment, accessibility, location, size etc) are adequate, it's institutional culture is somewhat...

Bands on tour don't often come to the city

In July I graduate after four years of studying Archaeological Sciences and I can honestly say that my time in Bradford has been some of the most enjoyable in my life. The department of Archaeological Sciences is unique in Europe for its integration of science and archaeology. The department...

The Modern Language course at Bradford has the advantage that it prepares you well for the world of work. The emphasis is on translation and interpreting skills and a variety of topics / texts concerning political and economic issues are used. Literature is not obligatory but can be chosen as an...

“Good for Electronics”

Bradford Uni is a good place to study electronics. The department is friendly, helpful and do their best to ensure that you come out with a worthwhile degree. The workshops and other facilities reasonably fitted out. The department also benefit's from the multitude of on going research projects...

Everything else

Bradford university is not a good uni at all! I am studying a computing course here and am fed up of it after just a few weeks, The lectures are just endlessly boring powerpoint presentations and the lecturers are even more boring, many lack any kind of enthusiasm. Most people come to uni to...

“I enjoyed it”

published 31/10/2000

Cheap living Great fun

Low key University - your friends laugh at you

I attended Bradford University to study for a degree in Environmental Sciences. I have to say the degree was about as much use as not having one, however the night life and cost of living in Bradford has to be experienced to be believed. What a place. The culture mix of Bradford makes a heady mix...

Bradford University is one of the best Universities in Great Britain and ofers a wide range of courses to choose from. It is easy to get to too, seing as most departments at Bradford are on the main campus, just ten minutes' walk from the city centre. The Library, the Computer Centre, the Sports...

“Its grim up north or is it?”

Good Size for meeting people

teaxhing could be improved

Bradford is a small to medium sized university. The University of Bradford has a lot going for it, but it has also got a lot of things that detract from the university. In its favour its size means that you get to know almost everyone and even if you dont know them you will have a friend who does...

Good Station

Bradford

THIS IS MY PERSONAL OPINION OF WHAT I FELT AND ENCOUNTERED. I do have friends who loved both the Uni and the city so.... What more can I say other than steer clear. I was a student here for two years before finally escaping to Paris in my third year and then never returning. I found the...

There is a Costa and Nero in the city-centre.

If you are an ethnic minority interview candidate ...

Whilst it boasts a large Asian student population do NOT be fooled. I believe this University is a RACIST employer and guilty of practicing RACISM when it comes to screening and interviewing applicants for jobs. I know this because I applied using my own Asian name whilst submitting a second...

Bradford uni...what can i say.......................pure shit, no multiculturalism, teachers set computerised tests and actually admit that the tests are unfair, but use them anyway because they can't be bothered marking work by hand.....uni is so small it's claustrophobic, theres no where to go, nothing todo, no english poeple, only a few europeans , who are only there because the uni deliberatley mis represents itself, they nearly all go back at end of year.....you can complain, but no one gives a shit.......theres just no reason whatsoever to go to bradford, well, unless your a muslim, in which case you'll fit in just fine
