About University of Bedfordshire

The University of Bedfordshire is an internationally recognised modern and transformative Higher Education institution that is both dynamic and innovative. The main UK campuses are based in Luton, Bedford, Milton Keynes and Aylesbury with many partner colleges across the UK including London School of Commerce in London and Birmingham. It was announced in September 2018 that Bedford was named the 4th best student city in the UK for providing events according to TickX. The University has students from over 120 countries that are studying across the Undergraduate Postgraduate degree programmes. The University also has education roots that stretch back more than 100 years since 1882 with international education partners across the world in countries and continents such as China, Vietnam, Middle East, Europe and South East Asia. 

The University also received a prestigious Silver Award in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) in June 2017. Furthermore, the academic colleagues have also received national teaching fellowship awards for their commitment to high quality teaching that reflects their previous practical backgrounds and work experiences. 

92% of Bedfordshire students who graduated last year have secured employment or further study (Destination of Leaver’s Higher Education (DLHE) survey). This focus on employability is supported by the Careers and Employability Service that is available to access at the Luton and Bedford campuses. The university also runs an internship scheme giving work experience opportunities to all its students, whether from the UK, EU or international. All students are trained prior to the internships to gain new skills and be ready for the workplace. 

Results published from the 2018 National Student Survey (NSS) in July 2018 demonstrate that 83% of final year students at Bedfordshire are satisfied with their studies.

The University is also Top 10 for most improved in teaching over the last five years. Many of the courses scored 100% in overall satisfaction including Forensic Science, Psychology, Performing Arts, while others including Biological Science, Football Studies, Law, Adult and Mental Health Nursing scored over 90%. 

·      £200 million has also been invested in outstandingstudent facilities in recent years.

The STEM building is part of the University’s widerobjective to increase the number of highly skilled graduates in Luton,Bedfordshire and beyond. The building will also support the creation of newcourses such as Pharmacy, Nutrition, Automotive and Mechanical Engineering,Computer Science and Technology and Physiotherapy.
