You can choose courses in subjects including: Arts and Media, Beauty Therapy, Business, Computing, Construction, Education, Early Years, Engineering, English, Entry Pathways, ESOL, Film, Hairdressing, Health and Social Care, Hospitality and Catering, Mathematics, Public Services, Science, Sport, Travel and Tourism.  

Courses delivered at Bradford College are designed with employment in mind. Our links with employers help us equip you with the skills you need to land a job.  

If your GCSE results are not what you expected, don’t worry because we have a range of courses suitable for all abilities including the Access to Further Education course, which is an ideal starting point to get you on the ladder to success.

If you’re looking for something a bit more hands on, we have Traineeships and Apprenticeships, including the Advanced and Higher Level Apprenticeship Schemes.  

For those who want to take a more traditional academic route, Bradford College offer a number of A levels such as Psychology and Three Dimensional Design.

Last year our A level students achieved success rates of 97%, 3% above the national average with 11 out of 14 subjects seeing 100% success. If you want to study Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Maths (STEAM) then you could benefit from our new range of Technical Baccalaureates or Aim Higher Programmes.

We offer courses such as Sport and Exercise Science, Games Development, Fashion Design and Technology to name but a few.

96% of our current students would recommend us to a friend and 95% achieved what they set out to do at Bradford College.  Students also say that the College has really helped them to prepare for university, better than school ever could, due to being given extra independence and greater emphasis on taking responsibility for your own learning. College life is fun too; we have a vibrant award winning Students’ Union, offering a number of clubs and societies.

You can take your first step into the world of work and earn some money at the same time through our Student Ambassador Scheme, working on activities such as open days, campus tours and promotional events.

The entire campus has Wi-Fi throughout, well equipped learning resource centres, a digital and creative media centre, a restaurant, hair, beauty and nail salons, a spa and café bars.  Our superb sporting and fitness facilities are based at the state-of-the-art Trinity Green Campus and include a large sports hall, a sports and fitness testing suite; a dedicated sport therapy room; an aerobics and dance studio complete with a fully sprung wooden floor; a multi-use games area; two basketball courts designed to Sport England standard; three 5-a-side pitches and a full size football pitch, a gym and boxing academy.
