Progression Scheme

The University of Bradford Progression Scheme is designed to benefit undergraduate applicants whose personal and educational circumstances mean they could be less likely to receive an offer based on our standard entry criteria.

If you are eligible for the progression scheme, some of our webinars will include a short question related to the topic for you to go away and answer and return via email. Following the receipt of this email, this will count as attendance at one of the two-outreach workshops. Pleased note this is only for selected webinars, for full details: Progression Scheme Webinars
