I study here on the Marston road campus doing healthcare. I love it here, the university is lovely, it is a little more old fashioned than the main campus but still amazing. The building has easy access, surrounded by 2 hour free street parking if needed. All the lecturers are very kind and understanding, they’re extremely accommodating and really are there to help with anything you need. I have dyslexia and ADHD, they have a support team which have been incredible for making my education more suitable to my needs. It is a great university!

The non native Japanese staff in Japanese Studies department were egotistical baboons that teach on the basis of 'if you don't share MY opinion then you are wrong' and grades suffer because of this 'teaching' method. There were instances of whole class failure when it came to assignments/quizzes (during the covid online class era) where every student failed, but it was of course not the fault of the teacher, but all the students who had been taught the incorrect information. During COVID the uni handled everything in the worst possible way including advertising that all lessons would be on site until everybody signed their accommodation contract to which all lessons were now online. Certain idiotic lecturers in this department were directly the cause of the majority of my cohorts grades to plummet in our final years, to the point where some people didn't even graduate. The year abroad was amazing but that is dependant on your uni choice as some were terrible, mine was amazing.

I have really enjoyed my stay at Dorset House and I have made some great memories here. But my stay would not have been complete without Aimar. He is the best management by far and he ALWAYS tries to make sure he finds a solution for the students here. We are really grateful and we all hope Aimar is here next semester as it would be incomplete without him.

I have been at Oxford Brookes for 2 years, going into my 3rd year in September and I love it! Majority of the staff are friendly and teach engaging lectures. They are always happy to help you achieve the best grade. The campus is very modern and they have brilliant facilities (speaking from a sports science student, the equipment I have been able to use it amazing, from ultra sounds to breath analyser)

It's an alright university, but definitely not as great as the open days make it out to be. Of all shops attached to the university, it sucks that they chose an extortionate co-op. There's hardly any actually interesting societies and there's rarely any interesting union events. The campus is generally nice though and it has the potential to be better.

Cannot recommend the attendance of this university in the course outlined. Administrative mismanagement and poor course syllabus make it a joke in terms of academic qualification to call this a postgraduate degree. For the most parts the academic level is very low and in some courses the educators are clearly not qualified to teach the material they are teaching both didactically and professionally. On a positive note, the academic staff often goes out of their way to give students the opportunity to understand the course material and take their time for 1:1 sessions and advice. Located at Wheatley campus, which was pretty far from the city and difficult to reach on public transport, particularly in the evenings.

I studied MSc in Motorsport Engineering. Good course and lecturers, room for improvement as some modules were not very well planned at all. We were located at Wheatley campus which was pretty far from the city and not very good at all. There are talks that they'll move us to Headington, but I doubt it'll happen anytime soon.

I have enjoyed my experience at Oxford Brookes University. I have met some fantastic friends through the course but have also been involved with the student radio society in my spare time. The facilities are very new and recently refurbished. The SU is not as prominent on campus as my previous university so this is something which was lacking for me. I wanted there to be more societies and engagement with students.

The business School is all theory based with little exposure to the classic components of an MBA such as managerial accounting etc. I go to business school here and would advise against going here. the curriculum is poorly designed. you are better off going to an American school or a different MBA program. my classmates are hardly getting any interviews as well for jobs.

Easy courses, decent campus. Nothing special or memorable to be completely honest. Student culture is overwhelmingly white even though there are a decent amount of international students. If you’re an international student who isn’t very used to super white spaces, might not be for you.

I really enjoyed my 3 years in oxford Brookes but I didn’t quite value my time studying n did not put it enough effort in work. The campus and accommodation choices were really good but expensive, they also had meals daily at uni which were a bit costly and the wifi was mostly good. They had a few good societies like running and the acs society

It’s alright, I’m doing a design degree and i’d definitely say the buildings and facilities for that are lacking and in general the lectures don’t really know what they’re doing. The main university is very modern and nice but the food is so expensive. I haven’t been able to make many friends and i think a part of that is the rubbish societies. On the whole though, since i’m only a first year i haven’t had the whole experience yet so can’t give a full review

Very bad unversity. Did my nursing training from here had no option. very disorganised, sending timetables 1 day before classes, making students stand as they didn't ve any other rooms left with enough chairs for students to have a seat during lectures. Marston campus is so old that sometimes you feel like tripping on loose carpet in corridor, If by any unforseen circumstances you missed lectures you will be punished and bullied by having low grades in ur assignments no matter how good is your submission/assignment. The lecturers have good educational background and experience but they are so wicked in a way that they put their ego before their work. Students are bullied by a systematic way that you can get help from leaders because they are all the same team. You are not able to get second opinion on your assignments because this would leave you in a Limbo and you will face worst reaction from academic staff with lowest grades. The Uni. tries to look like Oxford Uni. but no way.

My experience at Oxford Brookes University has been outstanding and as an international student, teachers and staff have been reachable when I have concerns/questions, especially when the university switched to online learning due to Covid-19.

I have been in a case to leave Oxford Brookes and get a refund for over a year, and they have dragged all of this out so I don't get a completion of proceedings letter that I need to raise this to an independent party. They have outright ignored half of my complaint because they have no defence and have twisted the other half to try to create a pathetic argument to not give me my refund despite emailing me a couple days ago saying I was getting a refund. It should be illegal for them to advertise they care about student well being as they only care about the university raking in more cash, even if it means taking it. Disgusting! I can not speak lowly enough. Please don't put a penny of yours in their hands

The staff at the student union are angels, but don’t expect any serious student issues to be resolved because they do not have the power to make any changes on campus. The facilities provided are really good, and the sports clubs are good fun too.

Some buildings like JHB are very nice and modern with all facilities needed, however there are some buildings that need updating like Fuller. I think the fees for participating in sports are excessive considering the fees being paid for tuition you would expect a lower fee.

A huge sham. They don't even have a chancellor since Katherine Grainger left last June (yet their website is pretending she's still there). Guess nobody wants their name attached to such a mess.

Fully deserves it's reputation in my experience. Obviously not all staff are abusive, but if you do find you come up against an abusive staff member you'll have scant recourse. Submit a complaint and you'll likely be systematically bullied for doing so. All the student union will do is shrug and suggest further complaints.

I studied film at Oxford Brookes. The teaching was passable but other elements of the university were not up to scratch. The academic advisers frequently gave out wrong information, quite often contradicting advice from the students union or student central. Brookes seems to hire a lot of it's own graduates, and evidently nobody is ensuring that they actually know the university regulations prior to them giving out advice. This lack of organisation seems to run throughout the university. No doubt the staff mostly have good degrees, yet no knowledge that actually relates to the job they're supposed to be doing. Staff also seem to move around a lot. Advisers suddenly appear behind the student central services desk for example, while new advisers appear in that office. Doesn't seem like having staff that are good in their roles through experience in those roles is on the minds of the people organising the place at all.

Lecturers and courses are great, however the University management is not committed to academia, but to money. I’ve seen appalling attitudes from the management treating students with contempt, ignoring their legitimate concerns over management negligence and breach of duty of care and equality. Also the university’s own procedures for complaints and giving students priority access to facilities shared with staff and public were not followed. Avoid if you can.

I can't speak on the other courses, but if you're considering taking Japanese studies here, don't. You will be much better off studying by yourself, taking private lessons (which you will get much more out of for a lot less than tuition fees, or choose a different university. You will waste your time here doing pointless work that adds to your stress and does not develop your language skills. Seriously, even if it's the only university that will accept you, don't waste your time & money here. Facilities: The main campus is just OK because they have a good library. Aside from that, expect to pay insane prices for any food, drinks, rent etc. The student accomodation is extremely overpriced and lacking. Even for Oxford. Basically, think quantity over quality. Shove as many students in as possible and charge as much as possible. The only cheap option (Harcourt hill) isn't fit to live in, students are constantly breaking rules with no consequences during the pandemic. Ran out of chars.

Go elsewhere if you can. There are some real issues with Brookes that aren't being addressed at all. Students bullied for complaining about abusive staff members, staff mis advising students, confrontational aggressive facilities staff in halls etc..

Disorganised shambles. Students are totally ignoring coronavirus rules. I have a weakened immune system so am being put at risk. Why were at risk people not identified and put separately to everyone else? Brookes seems to have a completely unrealistic idea of the degree to which they can control everyone's behaviour. Rather than accept that they can't stop students meeting off campus, and housing vulnerable students in isolation, they prefer to throw tantrums and make threats, which are being ignored en masse. When I complain and ask to be moved I'm told that my flat mates are breaking the rules and that i should report them. Great, then I can be both at risk and hated by everyone in the flat.
