At Bedfordshire we have a vibrant and cosmopolitan student population that includes around 20,000 students from over 100 countries. We are a modern university that believes in nurturing our students to become educated, employable and entrepreneurial global citizens.

We lead the way in expanding educational opportunity; with more than 40% of our students coming from families with no history of participation in higher education. Around 70% are mature returners to education and over half are from Black or ethnic minority backgrounds, under-represented in higher education. We have two main campuses in Luton and Bedford, with a large health teaching provision in Aylesbury at the world renowned Stoke Mandeville Hospital.

At our Bedford Campus you can find our specialist Sports Science labs and sports venues alongside our Performing Arts facilities which include two theatres and four fully sprung dance studios.

We appear in the Times Higher Education World University rankings, ranked as one of the top 300 universities in the world under 50 years old in the Young University rankings. We were extremely proud to come eighth in the UK in the People and Planet University Green League and also to celebrate an Eco Campus Platinum award.

We’re exploring new ways to make education more accessible and democratic than ever before. And we’re aiming to break down barriers and reach new learners all around the world.


We are based at the Luton campus with a small team also operating from Bedford and are here to help current students or graduates from the University of Bedfordshire with their career planning and progression.

The Careers and Employability Service network with local and national employers and organisations. Building good relationships enables us to keep up to date with relevant resources and information about graduate schemes, employment legislation, current vacancies, careers events and subject specific information.

      your chosen course, your personal and financial circumstances, and your future plans
      after graduation.
    • The interview will also determine if your English language ability is of a suitable
      standard. These interviews give you the opportunity to demonstrate that you are a
      genuine student, committed to studying in the UK with a clear understanding of
      what, why and where you will study.
    • 面试时,你应该诚实、清楚地回答。那些问题
      will be asked should relate to you and your decision to study the course you have
      chosen. Your interview is likely to be between 8 and 30 questions long, depending on
      what information the interviewer thinks they need from you.
    • Prior to issuing a CAS, all students must attend to BSMI’s credibility interview, which
      will last about 45 minutes. During this time, BSMI will ask you all the questions
      relevant to your chosen studies and how studying this course will help you with your
      future plans
