The University of Bedfordshire is based in both Luton and Bedford, two large towns north of London. The University of Bedfordshire has two main campuses in the centre of Luton and on the outskirts of Bedford, both with on-campus accommodation. The University also has two campuses for nursing and midwifery degrees at Butterfield Park on the outskirts of Luton, and at the Buckinghamshire campus at Oxford House in Aylesbury. A fifth site, Putteridge Bury, contains the postgraduate Business School.

Around 20,000 students from over 120 countries study at the University of Bedfordshire and, since its foundation in 2006, the University has invested over £130 million in building and redeveloping facilities. The sports facilities were used to host athletes in the London 2012 Olympic Games and 2015 Rugby World Cup.

A range of scholarships and discounts are also available at Bedfordshire, including the Vice Chancellor’s Scholarship and Early Bird payment discount.

Services for International Students

The University of Bedfordshire has a dedicated International Office that offers support on issues such as visas, accommodation, travel and events, orientation and induction for new students. There is also a formal Communication Skills course, which deals with academic English, aspects of British university culture and more general study skills.

Every new international student is also given a buddy, a current international student who will help you settle into your new surroundings.
