Ranuli Suhara Wickramaratne, International Business BSc (with work placement)
"My experience at Brunel has exceeded my expectations since my arrival – from the international student orientation programme, to lecturers and my course mates."
All the support staff I’ve interacted with on campus have been so helpful throughout my academic journey, as well as through my transition to England. My life at Brunel has been an eye-opening experience: with over 150 clubs and societies and a diverse community, I’ve met lots of new people and learned more about different cultures.
Through the Professional Development Centre, I was able to secure an excellent work placement which is a great asset for my CV.
It was tough to leave the comforts of home, but with the support of everyone here at Brunel, it has turned out to be an incredible experience and opportunity.

"I chose Brunel for my postgraduate degree because they had a very unique programme with an optional four-month work placement, and good ranking."
I found the coursework especially interesting since it often involved a real company to apply the concepts and theoretical frameworks to. The group presentations were helpful for developing my presentation skills, and by the end of the programme this made me a more confident speaker. The Brunel professors were engaging and had interesting examples accompanying their lectures.
After my course and dissertation were complete, I chose to do a placement at a digital marketing company with help from the Professional Development Centre. The placement was a fantastic experience and I recommend it to everyone! I was able to apply some of the things I had learnt on my course to my placement, and gained international experience for my CV. Thank you Brunel for a wonderful and unforgettable experience!
