(Student Profile)

Arooj Naheed

I chose to study at the University of Bradford because of its academic background; it is one of the UK’s best universities from an academic point of view. Moreover, being a Muslim girl, the Muslim community around the University allured me to join this University amongst others institutions.

Also the University of Bradford is not just an academic attraction for students around the globe, but it also provides various accommodation and entertainment facilities. These attributes make this University one of the best options to choose from.

The accommodation facilities are quite impressive here as compared to other universities, with lots of on-campus facilities such as gym, library and student cinema which gives entertainment facilities for all students. External residential facilities around the University are also cheap which give students peace of mind to manage their finances easily.

The academic record of this institution is pretty good; most of the students who studied here are working in well-known posts in their respective fields. There are many students who shared their opinions about this University.
