Overview of the University of Bradford

The University of Bradford officially became a university in 1966, but can trace its origins back to the establishment of the industrial West Yorkshire town’s Mechanics Institute in 1832.

The University of Bradford was the first higher education institution in the UK to open a modern business school and the first outside London to offer part-time degrees.

It was also the first British university to open a Department of Peace Studies, in 1973, and Bradford now boasts the largest higher education centre for the study of conflict resolution and peace in the world.

The university is undergoing an £84 million redevelopment programme, which will include a new dedicated student area to be known as Student Central, featuring study spaces, bars and other social areas.
