I chose Brunel because it has a modern, vibrant campus with an impressive range of state-of-the-art teaching, social and sporting facilities. I like Brunel as an international student because it has a very diverse community with international students from all over the world. Such a multicultural environment made me feel very welcome. As an international student I have benefited from many workshops, which taught essay writing, presentation, and project skills that were held by the academic support team.

It has always been my ambition to undertake medical-related subjects. The Biomedical Sciences course provided exactly what I expected and was certainly the right choice for me. The course starts with the basic medical-related subjects allowing students from different levels to be introduced to the field. Most of the lecturers are very friendly and excellent with their teaching, and the personal tutor network provides students with opportunities to share any academic or personal issues throughout the course at university.

Throughout my degree course, I enjoyed all of my lectures, in particular Human Pathology, and the Development and Treatment of Cancer.

The final year project was one of the most amazing things that I have done in my life and I have learned valuable skills from the process of completing my project. I would like to give my sincere thanks to Dr Tosi, who helped me throughout my project. She inspired me and assured me of my own self-confidence. This has been a great help for my life and it keeps me chasing the things that I have never thought I would be able to do before.

I would like to say that I am proud to be a student of Brunel. Brunel motivated me and helped me to realise my potential. I am very happy that I have chosen Brunel and this course. When I look back at my time at Brunel, I realise how far I have come. Brunel has been a very important part of making me who I am as a person today. I would recommend Brunel, and of course the Biomedical course, to any future students.
