Welcome to students from Singapore
Welcome to students from Singapore. We are very aware that both parents and students from Singapore place a very high value on higher education and aspire to overseas education. We are delighted that Brunel University is well known in Singapore and as a result we consistently attract high achievers.
Brunel University is a great study destination for Singaporean students for a number of reasons:
- Singaporean students are attracted to Brunel by its international reputation for research and teaching excellence and its dedication to supporting students throughout their time at the university.
- Situated on a relaxed, modern campus in west London, Brunel students are well-placed for enjoying the social and cultural facilities around London.
- Several of Brunel’s undergraduate courses are accredited by professional and statutory bodies. This is one reason why our courses are respected and recognised by employers worldwide. You can also develop your skills and improve your employability by making the most of the range of work placements we have on offer.
- Brunel University offers support and guidance to all our international students through our Placement and Careers Centre as well as assistance in finding part-time work.
We usually visit Singapore in November and March each year. Please check the 'Brunel in your country' tab for details of upcoming events.
