The University of Bradford is a relatively new university – beginning as Bradford Technical College in 1882 and granted a Royal Charter to become the University of Bradford in 1966 – the 40th university to be created in Britain. They were the first British university to offer a Peace Studies degree and are also renowned for their business and management, and engineering courses.
