Brunel was a university that really made me feel like I wasn’t just ‘another number’. Brunel really cares about providing high quality education, no matter the circumstances.

The teaching I received at Brunel was first class and it taught me to think critically about the evidence base.

My placement within a community Rapid Response Team really pushed me to ensure I was doing the most effective assessments possible. While I have seen less patients overall than on other placements, being the first practitioner to support an acutely unwell patient really challenges your clinical reasoning.
