Distance Learning

AdvantagesStudying from home

DisadvantagesDo not have the personal touch

"...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 Bradford came up trumps. The course is specialising in dementia care, which is the area of which I work in and although I am living near a university it does not cover any of the modules that Bradford ..." Read review

management and languages at Bradford

Advantagescheap, friendly

Disadvantages

"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 (as a lot of final year students tend to). The halls are of mixed quality, trinity were the best when I was there, appartments of seven people sharing a ..." Read review

Civil Engineers / Environmental Managers - go elsewhere!

AdvantagesOne only - Bradford is cheap.

DisadvantagesMany, read opinions.

Bradford itself is a fairly quiet city, with an awful architecture and planning. The University of Bradford is a bottom of the class University except for the Peace Studies Department and the Management Centre based degrees. Even so, the Peace Studies department was under threat of being extinct as they ..." Read review

Best four years of my life

AdvantagesExcellent reputation in Archaeology, Peace Studies, Management, Pharmacy

DisadvantagesBands on tour don't often come to the city

"...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 offers five undergraduate degree programs, BSc Archaeology, BSc Archaeological Sciences, BSc BioArchaeology, BSc GeoArchaeology and BSc Geography and Archaeology. The course structure is well balanced allowing students a wide range of module options ..." Read review

Poor - Do not spend your hard earned thousands of pound here.

AdvantagesYou do not need high grades to get a place, the university is small so you will not be overwhelmed

DisadvantagesPoor outdated attitude of staff, poor PG standards. Not a major player in the world of academia !

"...I was a school kid. Bradford very much seems to have a 'you will do as you are told' approach towards its students, were you are 'told-off' about things (not something you expect when you are paying them a lot of money to provide, what is in essence, a service). Many of their staff, whom I have no doubt have been there for many years and set in their ways) have not caught up with the concept that Universities have changed over the last 20-10 years. ..."
