Oxford Brookes offers a range of support services in ways you didn't even think would be necessary! All staff are attantative and the atmosphere of the students is welcoming and friendly. Everyone feels welcome and supported by staff and students. There a are many opportunities to meet new people and a large range of societies which allows everyone to find something they are interested in.

I’ve really enjoyed my time at Brookes I’m now going onto my last year. I really enjoyed teachers who are passionate about the subject they are teaching whilst caring for the students and insuring they understand the subject. These are rare! And most likely are the programme leads for your degree but they are there!

Beware of the Harcourthill Hall staff. If you experience trouble with your flatmate, they will never help to intervene (eg theft, slobby people and noise). They are very rude and never use a single sympathy when you experience inconvenience (eg lost parcel/letter from bank).

Did Publishing with English Literature here and had a great time. The English and Publishing staff are all fantastic and made their subjects really fun and interesting. Publishing sent their own careers newsletter and have great links with the industry - there are a lot of media employers in Oxford. Careers are really friendly and can really help you with CVs, job hunting and interviews if you go and talk to them. There are lots of work experience / part time job opportunities. The new JHBB building is beautiful and the food and gym at Headington are great too! The best part was the choice of modules, you can do a bonus language module and even incorporate the odd module from outside of your degree (like I did with web design). The experience is really tailored to you and Oxford in general is amazing.

The brookes bus service is good. There aren't really many societies if you don't like sports. The union - what union? They exist but I have never heard of any events related to them. We get a careers email every week but the jobs are not at all made relevant to the course you are doing.

The majority of the lecturers are petty minded and disorganised. For example, the other day we walked into a lecture where the lecturer was still creating the lecture. Ends out he copied and pasted his lecture from another module I had taken and had a quick 2 minutes to alter the first 2 slides to make it look like he hadn't done that. There have been two modules so far that have been completely irrelevant but compulsory: Skills For Life Scientists and Research Methods. They feel like they were supposed to be statistics modules but none of the lecturers could really give a shit. DO NOT DO BIOLOGY HERE. There's maybe 2 lecturers who are inspiring and interesting, but unfortunately the rest really bring it all crashing down. The quality of teaching is pretty poor, and the attitudes of the lecturers is openly "I have better things to do than teach you".

Wifi can cut out sometimes but 98% of the time its all good. There's a careers centre in the forum (central space) which is really helpful. Facilities like the library and the sports centre are great, food is kinda pricey though! SU is slightly disappointing, they really focus on sports more than anything else. There's lots of nationality and religious societies, and theres some political and other ones too, but not as many societies as other universities.

Oxford School of Architecture rocks. Brookes as a whole might be a medium range university, but the architecture department is excelling. Overall, good parts are that we have around four different eating places on-campus, a Starbucks and a small shop- which are incredibly helpful, the JHB building looks neat and the library is always open, day or night. On the other side, we are a bit short both in study places (such as the computers in the Forum, where is almost impossible to find one during lunch hours) and the architecture studio is always over-crowded, the accommodation is quite expensive (as anything else in Oxford) and the wi-fi often disconnects (although it works fine and you get signal almost everywhere, from the campus to bus and halls). The architecture department is absolutely amazing- the culture in the studio is unique and the whole program is developed in such way that you are constantly intelectually simulated

Great University Pathetic Parking. Areas where parking spaces are and are always empty, but you have to have a permit to get one, and if your not disabled then you can't, so everyone has to cram on Cheney lane, and you look over the barrier to Cheney Student Village and there's 40 empty spaces never used....

Most of the student body 'can't be bothered' with clubs and societies and if you are then you're in the minority. The student union almost purely exists on an advice basis, rarely organising events, there is a small bar big enough for no more than 30 or so people.

Very good looking facilities, however not especially functional. Science building is also lacking with little access to the newer facilities.

I've had the best experience here, met some great people. Oxford is a lovely place to live, there is lots to see and do. The university itself is good, improving all the time. Some courses are stronger than others

I have to admit that the city of Oxford is one of the best places to be in this world. It is very old and inspiring. There is a strong feeling that Oxford Brookes doesn't fit in this description though. The actual "feel" of the university is far from what you think of it before you come there. The student prospectus is a bunch of lies, so don't even bother reading this crap. This university is just a typical business that only cares about money and nothing else. The accommodation is unreasonably overpriced,considering what you get for your cash. The food they serve at the cafeteria is expensive, tasteless and unhealthy. My personal experience was horrible. My degree is in Project management. A word of warning to you guys, don't choose anything related to construction/surveying at Brookes. These courses are taught by ignorant ****s that couldn't make it in real life, having zero industry experience they decided to "teach" young people. Don't make my mistake and go to a good University

The wifi is really slow at the times you need it most. The SU doesn't really so much for student life. The JHBB is the best though.

Washing machines are poor as many break often. Wifi is extremely poor in halls and also on the platform in jhb unless you have a mac. Brookes snow has been extremely good fun and I have made many friends through it.

Unfortunately the location of Harcourt Hill Campus does not help you if you have an active extra curricular life. The majority of all clubs and societies are located at Headington Campus. Which, unfortunately for people on Harcourt, means a 45 minute bus ride at best heading both ways! The internet here can be intermittent at best, as sometimes I have re-sign in again! The student union bar is often very quiet, as there isn't enough people to create a hubbub for the place, personally we really need a little shop selling important food shopping items, and an ATM machine, as the cashback system in the refectory can only give you so much!

Good range of sports clubs which are good, and the gym is quite good. Close to the city centre, and the Cowely road, which are good for nights out. Private accommodation is not that great value and is rather competitive. The SU puts on a small selection of activities sometimes - and a film every week - although the city is a better bet for entertainment. Library is nice, although fills up very quickly.

i could be be more happy with my university! The societies really go for it on Wednesday nights at Fuzzy Ducks and it's crazy!! The dance society is just amazing!! Couldn't ask for a better range of classes and they have a show and go on tour to Salou!! The facilities in Headington are amazing but up at Harcourt Hill we could do with some more renovations!! Absolutely love it though!
