Returning students

Welcome back to the University of Bradford

Before you start another year of study, you will need to re-enrol online and re-affirm your wish to study with the University for another year.

Message from the Vice-Chancellor

I would like to extend a very warm welcome to all new and returning students to the University of Bradford.

You are a student at a university committed to excellence, internationalisation, equality and diversity and sustainability.

I encourage you to take every opportunity to engage in the broader university experience, through the many opportunities provided by our support services and our Students’ Union, and to engage in this vibrant and exciting community and city.
