As Professor Jeremy Bradshaw finishes his role as Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International & Doctoral) at the end of July 2021, we pay tribute to his achievements. Colleagues can add their best wishes to Jeremy’s card by e-mailing Judith Plank.

Professor Bradshaw was appointed to the post of Pro-Vice-Chancellor (International & Doctoral) in December 2017, taking up the role early the next year. He took on responsibility for the growth and development of the University’s recently-established Doctoral College as well as leading the international development of the institution.

Since his appointment, Professor Bradshaw has ensured the Doctoral College has become firmly established, enhancing the support given to our doctoral students.

Professor Ian White, Vice-Chancellor and President, said:

“I would like to thank Professor Bradshaw most sincerely for his achievements in his time with us. He has led the creation of the posts of Associate Deans (International), which is a wonderful foundation on which to build, as well as appointing a new Director of International Relations and Chairing our Internationalisation Board and International League Tables Working Group.

“Despite the obvious challenges of developing new international partnerships during a global pandemic, we have also made progress in this area. I was particularly pleased to see us become a signatory to the new UK-Singapore Universities Alliance for Entrepreneurship and Innovation.

“In addition to his achievements in this field, I know Jeremy has also given valued support to the Doctoral College and Department of Development and Alumni Relations, for which we are most grateful. I’m pleased Jeremy will continue to support Bath in the future, particularly around internationalisation.”

Professor Jeremy Bradshaw said:

“It has been the greatest pleasure to work with colleagues at Bath over the last few years. I’m grateful to all those who have helped to navigate the past 16 months in particular, both to continue developing key international partnerships despite limited opportunities to travel and to support our doctoral students during the pandemic.”

Professor Jeremy Bradshaw gained a MA in Zoology from Oxford University in 1981. Following a year in industry he was awarded a DPhil from the same university in 1985, where he also took up his first teaching post.

In 2007 he became the Head of the Graduate School of the College of Medicine and Veterinary Medicine, a post he held for two years. From 2009 to 2013, he was Director of Postgraduate Studies for the College and became International Dean and Director of Quality Assurance.
