How to get help

Enrolling at Bradford College

The College welcomes applications from anyone, regardless of race, gender, disability, religion or belief, sexual orientation or age.

Make sure you fill out the ‘Support Required’ section on your application form if you have a learning difficulty, disability, medical need or other learning need  that you need to make us aware of.

We will get in touch when we receive your application with details of the referral process.

Feel free to contact us if you need to discuss any aspect of the service and the support we can offer you at college.    

Current students

If you are enrolled on a course and want to refer yourself to the SEND & Additional Learning Support department,  you will need to complete a referral form and provide with it a copy of any associated evidence of your support needs. You can also ask one of your class tutors to help you complete the referral process.

To complete a referral or contact us for advice please use the following methods:

  • Visit our SEND & ALS  helpdesk on level three of The David Hockney Building
  • Email us
  • Call us 01274 08 8344

Please note: If you indicated support needs during the enrolment process you will have received information on how to refer yourself.  

International students

You need to tell us in advance about any learning support needs you have, so we can plan and make sure you have a supportive learning environment.

We will offer you the same support as to any other student in your situation, in line with UK regulations and legislation.
