Why Brunel University London for international students?

Brunel is ranked among the UK's top 50 and London's top 10 universities in the Complete University Guide 2018. 

We are proud to be one of the top 25 universities in the world for international students (Times Higher Education 2017).

"When I arrived at Brunel, I had my doubts about how I would be integrated in the community being an international student. I was pleasantly surprised by the open mindedness and friendly environment of the staff and students at Brunel.”
