Current students and alumni

  • I chose Brunel because it has a real international focus and an innovative spirit. When you arrive you feel the campus is full of vigour and vitality. I particularly enjoy the excellent Students Union and the strong student community culture here.
  • I treasure the experience of working with neuroscience researchers through my PhD study, making me capable of working in a diverse and challenging environment where researchers from multiple fields work together. Outside research life, Brunel can also fill your social life with joy. I am proud of being a student at Brunel University London, and I believe Brunel will make my career bright in the future.
  • The reason I chose Brunel was because it is located in London and had the potential to offer me more job opportunities after I graduate. Another thing that appealed me to me was that the campus is ideally located outside of central London, which means living costs are not too expensive. Probably the greatest experience since I started my course at Brunel is that I have been treated respectfully. I also quickly realised that my voice is important here and everybody wants to hear what I have to say.

Union of Brunel's students logoThe Union of Brunel Students has over 100 student societies, including cultural, academic, nationality, campaigning, performance, faith and religion and general interest societies. Joining a society is a great way to meet people and try something new!
