If I go for sandwich course, will it help me to get job sponsorship
By member439354 On 13th June 19
Recently I had the same doubt. They will only assist through their tie up of some kind. But I don’t see the point of the sandwich if it’s not a guaranteed placement.

The university is modern and offers a wide range of courses. The forum is always busy and there’s not enough seating! The library is well equipped and you can usually get the book you need.

The student union is close to non existent with food and drinks costing the same as a non student bars/restaurants. That being said there is a great variety of food on campus albeit at an unreasonable price. Fantastic careers service and a good nightlife but be prepared to pay no less than £5 for student entry. Internet and wifi in the library cannot cope with the huge number of students at peak times.

Student Union is okay, but a bit uninvolved. The societies, I've heard, are fun, but of the two I tried I didn't get into one and the other closed down. Internet is largely okay, and the library is amazing.

Union is awful and seems like a facade. Uni Wifi is good except in the forum when its busy. Societies as a whole are good but honestly depends on the society. Campus is new and still being renovated so everything feels modern and Gender neutral toilets. Awful disability/Wellbeing service to the point where for some people its a constant struggle.

If you’re studying on the Headington Campus (the brand new main one) you’re in for the best 3 years. It’s got everything you could possibly need from a uni plus it’s super fun. And if you’re doing anything to do with a built environment degree (eg architecture, real estate) then its a pretty great place to be taught.

I really good modern university with caring, helpful staff. On the whole teaching is robust with regular feedback given to students. However, the student union could be a lot better, and more assistant in a variety of ways could be provided for students regarding finance, as Oxford is a very expensive city to live in, and as well, the facilities provided by the university are very expensive.

Joke of a university! Firstly the well-being service is shocking with a huge suicide rate, which is covered up by the university paying off local media. The main Headington campus is lovely but the others are completely neglected. The halls are massively overpriced and very poorly managed. I studied engineering before dropping out, mostly due to the fact that I’d had enough of paying £9000+ a year for some bored lecturers reading off PowerPoints and adding no personality to the course. I would definitely not recommend Brookes to anyone when the other universities I have visited seem to pay a lot more attention to you rather that the wad of money you’re paying them.

Fantastic facilities and equipment for sporting degrees. Lecturers were professional, friendly, and open for support whenever it was needed. Support for dyslexic students was extremely helpful during my degree, such as extra allowances for assignments and exams, and one to one tuition. On the downside, during my 4 years at Brookes I found food options to be limited and overpriced, considering that students have limited funds. For example, a simple meal deal was significantly more expensive on campus than other high street shops.

Jhb has great facilities but isn’t a lot of space to work especially computer rooms as these get booked out all day for one or two people. The union is awful with issues taking ages to get sorted or not really doing anything. Student nights out are run by an external company rather than union so are much more expensive than other units

An excellent university with a modern campus, the Headington Campus including the JHB and the new Clerici building are great places to work and study. The teaching is overall good, with some occasional exceptions where the quality dips (although the opposite is also true). The societies I feel have an issue where they are too niche and don't appeal to any general interests, like 'Land Rover Appreciation' or 'Disney Movie', which can make it hard for people to find things they want to join. As for the Students Union, the Freshers' Fair is great and their advice facilities are useful, but other than that I'm not sure what they do, especially as Brookes doesn't have an on-campus bar run by union like other universities. The careers service at Brookes is very useful and they run numerous job fairs and can hold 1-on-1 consultations and even mock interviews. Finally, the wifi is eduroam and it's great, has coverage across campus and is fast (though can cut out sometimes at peak times).

I've seen a lot of negativity about this university, particularly people saying that certain departments are useless. Firstly if you need help with mental health or disabilities, don't go to admissions, CONTACT STUDENT SUPPORT, that's their job not admissions. I'll admit the Headington campus is a bit of a maze, but it's easy to navigate after the first week or so! I'm currently a second year student and the university has been nothing but helpful and supportive of my mental health needs and academic support. I couldn't rate them highly enough. My lecturers are always engaging with their topic and willing to discuss theories etc after class, and often over a cup of coffee (sometimes even via email over the weekend!) The support from them is incredible and I can't thank them enough. Don't listen to the negative comments! Apply to this university! Just make sure you know who to talk to, and where they are! and you'll be just fine!

The wifi was okay when it could be accessed, the campus is dreadful and its difficult to find your way around, especially if you are trying to look for lifts if you have any mobility issues. the students union was hidden away and you would not be able to find it until you had searched the whole building, it is poorly constructed.

The admissions team are completely useless, especially if you are asking about mental health and disabilities, they are no help at all, they also are rude if you have any special needs or disabilities or even mental health issues. The lecturers are rude and not interested in what they want to teach, they have no care for the students whatsoever, I tried emailing about certain issues and a woman from the admissions department was completely rude to me along with the lecturers. If this review has any important view to you, take it as advice and DO NOT APPLY TO THIS UNIVERSITY. They cannot organise anything, and are a complete let down for where they are based. The whole department where I was based was a shambles, this university only wants your money, and they don't care for your well being or health. The admissions team is completely disgusting to students who has different disabilities or special needs.

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!

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 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 s***. 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

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.

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!
