Bradford University have been short-listed for the award for the most improved student experience by The Times Higher Education annual awards.

Now in their tenth year, the Times Higher Education Awards celebrate the extraordinary things that are going on in universities and colleges, day in, day out. Bradford University have received the acknowledgement for the most improved student experience, and the results of the award are to be determined by 20, 000 students across the country, through a survey. The survey rates the academic reputation, teaching, social life and facilities of the institutions.

Vice-Chancellor, Professor Brian Cantor said “We are extremely pleased to be short-listed for this award. We pride ourselves on our students’ experience and work hard each year to make sure that we provide an excellent environment and outstanding support, both academically and socially.

He also addressed future students looking to come to the university, “In particular we support our new students, for whom starting university can be both an exciting and daunting prospect. For example, our Room 101 Social Learning initiative has had a major impact on helping students to become fully involved with the University.”

The pro-vice Chancellor for Learning and Teaching, Professor Shirley Congdon was delighted that students are valuing the recent improvements to their experience at the University. She said “Through strong and sustained partnership working with students we have responded to the needs of our diverse student body providing personalised approaches to learning, employability, student support and life on campus.”

The winners will be announced on Thursday 27 November 2014.
