Students from all around the world have been welcomed to Bradford by the Lord Mayor.
This year’s new cohort of international students at the University of Bradford come from 88 different countries.
In an annual tradition, around 200 of them visited City Hall, where the Lord Mayor, Councillor Khadim Hussain, gave them a special welcome and treated them to tea and buns.
They were joined by the university’s deputy vice chancellor, Sue Kershaw.
Coun Hussain said: “Many were coming for the first time from various parts of the world – some from Europe, some from the other side of the globe.
“It reflects Bradford’s diversity. Bradford has the edge over the rest, when it comes to welcoming people from different parts of the world.
“They were quite thrilled by the Council building and the banqueting hall, when they saw the heritage of it.”
