There’s a guaranteed place for you at Bradford College

If you’re a school leaver aged between 16-18, there is a place guaranteed for you at Bradford College.

Bradford College understands how difficult a year it has been for studying. So we have introduced the Bradford College Guarantee for people aged 16 to 18 to ensure no matter what has happened during your study in the last 12 months or whatever your results, there is a place for you at the college.

A host of courses to choose from

This means that everyone of that age group can access one of our courses for school leavers, including A levels, BTECs and apprenticeships. There is a course for you, no matter what your background, circumstances or level of achievement before applying to Bradford College.

About the Guarantee

The College Guarantee means there is

  • A guaranteed place on the course of your choice, provided you meet entry requirements


  • If you haven’t quite got the grades they need, we will offer a suitable alternative course that will meet your needs and ambitions.

Outstanding resources to help you learn and train

Dawn Leak, Vice Principal, said: “Our courses are career-focused, which means you will be studying towards gaining employment in an exciting career or we will be supporting you to continue your learning journey.

“When you study at Bradford College, you will have a very different experience to staying on at school. We have thousands of learning resources, media and library services, arts and creative industry spaces, a gallery, media suite, science labs, workshops and training rooms, sports and gym facilities alongside hair & beauty salons, cafés and an on-site restaurant. You will have access to all of our enrichment, sports facilities and support teams, who will help guide you through your time at the college.

Planning further study?

“Or, if you’re hoping to go on to further study after your course, you have a range of opportunities available to you including HNDs and HNCs, Foundation Degrees and Degrees.

“Bradford College is a supportive, welcoming and inclusive place to learn and develop as a person. It doesn’t matter who you are or what you’re studying, whatever your ambitions, we will help take you where you want to go.”
