Current students and alumni

  • The facilities at Brunel are exceptional. Everything you need on campus or close by! From an excellent library to a medical clinic, restaurants, a counselling unit and even a bank - I have found everything I need. Since coming to Brunel I have been blown away by the calibre of academic staff. My lecturers have been really supportive and have encouraged me throughout my time here. They are always happy to assist and spur students on to reach their full potential.
