University Summary

Only 30 minutes by train from central London and you arrive at the University of Bedfordshire.  Although a new University, it remains an institution with a rich heritage, and academics roots dating back to 1882.

The University of Bedfordshire has 24,000 students from more than 100 countries world-wide, and is spread across five campuses:

  • Luton campus – a town centre based campus which boasts a range of industry-standard facilities as a result of a major investment programme, as well as a bespoke Postgraduate and CPD Centre
  • Bedford campus – an enclosed leafy campus which houses the PE and Sport Science Centre which was used to train athletes in the 2012 Olympic Games
  • Putteridge Bury campus – an Elizabethan mansion which is home to many of our postgraduate students, and the University Conference Centre
  • Buckinghamshire campus in Aylesbury – with dedicated facilities for our Nursing students
  • UCMK, Milton Keynes campus – our brand-new campus which opened in 2013, and specialises in the STEM subjects

The University of Bedfordshire places a strong focus on entrepreneurship and not just employability so that we can create the kind of graduates that organisations compete to employ. This is seen in the number of professional accreditations that many of our courses carry, and through the success of our graduates; with 92% in work and/or further study within six months of graduating (DLHE 2014).

But don’t just take our word for it. Our students think so too. And that’s why we’ve been rated as a number one university for improving the student experience, a leading university for improving career prospects, and a top 25 university for personal development (National Students Survey 2014).
