Brunel Read Ahead Scheme 2012-13

Free course books for low-income, mature or disabled English students

 An exciting new initiative will be piloted to Brunel level one English students in the forthcoming academic year (2012-13). Under this scheme, students meeting certain criteria will be eligible for FREE course books.

As part of our continuing efforts to provide additional support to students, Brunel English will provide free course books to first-year undergraduate students from low-income backgrounds (those eligible for a full maintenance grant), mature students (those over the age of 21), and students with a disability.

Critical editions recommended by module leaders will be provided ahead of each term of study for the first year. Participating students will be asked for feedback on the scheme at the end of the academic year with a view to rolling it out further in the future.

Students will be able to learn more about this scheme when they arrive at Brunel for Fresher’s Week at the end of September, when eligible students will be asked to complete a form and collect their free books from their personal tutors.
