Our Student Services will be there to ensure you have a supportive environment whilst studying with us. The Student Centre will help you with a wide range of administrative enquiries and support services through your student journey from registration to graduation. Our Student Wellbeing team provides individual and group support to help you overcome certain challenges so that you can achieve your university goals. For help with housing, finances, information on local childcare, and general wellbeing, our Student Support and Welfare Team is available for advice and guidance during your time at university. We have an adviser dedicated to supporting mature students.
You’ll also benefit from our Academic Skills (ASK) service which will support by helping you to develop the skills needed to learn independently and thrive academically, whatever your level or subject. It will help you with developing your study, writing, maths and numeracy skills, and many others.
You’ll have access to our Professional Development Centre throughout your studies and three years post qualifying. They provide help and guidance to support with finding your placement, part-time student jobs and volunteering roles. Additionally, they provide services like career advice and employability courses, job interview preparation, help to start your business and learning a new language.
In year 1, eligible students can join the Brunel Summer Internship Programme. This scheme offers you the opportunity to gain eight weeks relevant paid work experience during your first summer break. In your second or third year of study, eligible students can take part in Brunel Professional Mentoring, which links students with a business mentor.
Our students' union is also there not just to provide you with advice in case you need it, but they organise lots of social and sports activities you can join. Their Mature Student Society is a great place to make connections. The society offers a platform for mature students at Brunel to network and support each other academically, as well as providing opportunities for socialising.
