Asad, Mechanical Engineering with Aeronautics BEng
Brunel is a university that encompasses the best parts of work, rest and play. The atmosphere here is one of a kind; it really makes you feel welcome and a part of the big Brunel family from day one. I have met some amazing people during my time, and have already formed what I'm certain will be long lasting friendships.One of the biggest reasons that I chose Brunel was because it stood out to me as an engineering university with strong associations and links to various companies, locally and worldwide, making the graduate opportunities second to none.The range of clubs and societies will surprise you – there is something to suit everyone, and I’ve never seen such a wide range at other universities. From anime to skydiving, rugby to tea, the possibilities are endless. Brunel has become a home to me, I am proud to be a Brunelian!

Everyone I have met at Brunel so far has been so friendly, helpful and a great laugh - I haven’t met anyone who has had a bad word to say! There is a great sense of community at Brunel, from sport teams which are immensely fun to be a part of, to Locos, Academy (student bars), your course and various campus activities. Brunel is a place where everyone is treated equally, and the whole campus and community gives opportunities to whoever wants to take them.Brunel was the one university that I had visited that gave me an incredible vibe and feeling; when meeting the students, lecturers and course technicians, everyone just seemed so welcoming. It was obvious that they enjoyed the challenge of making Brunel the best it could be. The buildings and facilities help enhance the great, welcoming ‘home away from home’ feeling you get around campus and in halls.
