University of Bedfordshire

About us

The University of Bedfordshire is a modern public university established in 2006. We offer high-quality, career-focused teaching and excellent student support.

We have 5 campuses: Luton, Bedford, Milton Keynes, Putteridge Bury and Aylesbury and currently enroll 22,000 students from more than 120 countries.

Courses

Designed with employer and employee requirements in mind, our courses provide opportunities for integrated personal, academic and career development. We offer undergraduate and postgraduate courses in Business, Computing, Education, Health, Life Sciences, Media, Psychology, Social Studies and Sport Science.

Employability

92 per cent of our graduates are in work and/or further study within six months of graduating ( DLHE, 2014).

We believe that thanks to our carefully designed curriculum, innovative teaching methods and links with industries, we are able to ensure students are kept up-to-date with employer needs.

Within our Business School, students can benefit from Practice Weeks, where they get the opportunity to work alongside businesses on real projects, learning key skills in confidence, negotiation, time management, team work, and planning. Our law students learn to present cases in a Moot Court; our nurses hone their skills in simulation labs.

We also run an Internship Scheme that is designed to give students real-life industry experience, and allow them to test their chosen career path.

Location

With excellent transport links to London (30 minutes on a train from our main campus in Luton) and the rest of the UK, the towns where our campuses are based offer the perfect blend of culture, entertainment and charming surroundings.

Facilities

The University is continually investing in state-of-the-art facilities to provide you with the best environment in which to succeed. We offer modern classrooms, well equipped labs, group study areas, modern on-campus accommodation, brand new gyms and a seven-story library to be opened in begging of 2016.
