Overview

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 15,000 students from over 100 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.

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.

Students can also enjoy free access to an on-site gym, 24-hour laundry and 24-hour security. In Bedford, students can choose from two different accommodation options at the Student Village or Liberty Park.

Location

Luton is one of the UK's largest towns, and also one of its most diverse. Over 140 different nationalities make up this vibrant, multicultural society. By contrast, Bedford is a riverside town on a beautiful stretch of the River Great Ouse, surrounded by parks and open spaces.

London is close and easy to reach from both the Luton and Bedford campuses, which are on the same train line into London's St. Pancras station. The journey takes around 40 minutes from Bedford and 22 minutes from Luton on a fast train. London Luton airport is just 4km away from the main Luton campus.
