The University of Bradford is a traditional institution with a long history of high-quality research, learning and teaching. It is also forward-thinking, modern and student-orientated. The University has won awards for sustainability and provides state of the art facilities for students on campus. Academically it has one of Europe's leading business schools plus the world's largest centre for the study of peace and conflict. Students are taught by academics from around the world, which is backed up by high-quality research spanning over almost 50 years.

The city of Bradford has many notable places of interest, including the National Media Museum, Bradford Cathedral, Bradford 1 Gallery, the Saltaire World Heritage Site and many others. Bradford has also been given the distinction of being the first city designated a UNESCO city of film.

Strong or unique academic fields most recommended for ISEP students include peace studies and politics, archaeological sciences, engineering (civil, chemical, mechanical, medical), business and management, chemical and forensic sciences, economics, computer science/ICT and media studies. Students study 60 Bradford credits, which are three to six modules per term.  


ISEP students will be accommodated in The Green, in either an apartment or townhouse (depending on availability), with single rooms and shared kitchens. Bedding packs may be purchased prior to arrival.


ISEP Exchange students will receive a meal stipend based on the cost of living for students in Bradford, which they can use to purchase groceries and cook meals in shared facilities. 

All ISEP students will be expected to budget for their meals accordingly, and can ask their ISEP Student Services Coordinator for tips, as well as check out ISEP's resources for Budgeting for Study Abroad.
