Depending on what age you are when you start college, there may be fees associated with your course, but if you are below the age of 19, your course will be free!

Safeguarding is about doing everything we can to make sure our students and staff are kept safe. We adhere to the statutory government guidance contained in the government’s Keeping Children Safe in Education document.

We have clear policies and procedures in place which outline how we keep students and staff safe, and handle issues when they arise.

Student Accommodation

Living in halls is a great way to meet other students and offers a safe, secure and affordable home while you study at Bradford College. Unipol is a student housing charity that runs the accommodation services for students at the college. They can give you advice on renting a private room too, and help you out should you need to move accommodation during the academic year.

Students’ Union

All students over 16 can access Union services and are automatically members unless you opt-out. For £12 a year, you can buy a TOTUM card offering savings of between 10% and 42% on things like beauty products, eating out, clothes, supermarkets or travel.

The Students’ Union exists to make the lives of Bradford College students’ better. One of the key ways we work to do this is to make sure your voice is heard on your course.
