Meet our students
Course: Journalism BA
"I fell in love with Brunel on my very first visit. The campus seemed safe and the ability to travel into London so easily was a massive bonus."
All the lecturers were approachable and helpful and all the students helping at the open day were enthusiastic.
There are so many people at Brunel that you can talk to if you are unsure about something or if you’re struggling. The facilities are second-to-none, and the lecturers make each module engaging and relevant. Everyone has such a passion for their subject and their enthusiasm really rubs off on you.
My writing has improved so much over my time here and I have developed my own style that I’m finally happy with. The lecturers really push you to develop your potential and the whole university experience has helped me become a lot more confident and independent.
There is always something on at Brunel! Everyone here is so welcoming that it has been really easy to make friends and there are so many clubs or societies to join. Living in halls can be a great way to make new friends.
The Placement and Careers Centre are invaluable. They have been great in helping me make my CV stand out.

"I chose to study Journalism at Brunel because of the reputation of the course. The University’s close proximity to London and friendly campus set-up were a brilliant bonus."
In a time when anyone clever enough to work out how to create a free WordPress account can become a ’citizen journalist’, more emphasis is placed on skills like shorthand and a solid legal understanding. I got both at Brunel.
This all contributed to me being accepted for a two-week work placement at T3 magazine after only five months of study at Brunel! It was without a doubt one of my proudest moments - and being asked to write an article for a publication I had read religiously throughout my teens was surreal.
Outside of lectures, Brunel has an array of clubs, societies and sports teams clustered into its West London campus. It also has a monthly newspaper run by students, which offers a great chance for people from very different courses to collaborate and work together.
I enjoyed my three years at Brunel immensely - and would return for another helping in a heartbeat, had the staff and course not helped me walk into such a staggeringly good job.
