Brunel gave me some of the best years of my life. Great tutors, great facilities, great course, great student union, amazing campus life, and sensational people. Throw yourself into everything you can and you're bound to get the most out of your experience.
Brunel been an amazing experience till date and I am sure it will continue to be one, faculty excel at their position, course is well structured and thought, students Union is okayish, newly elected Asian body is useless (no offense but they don't do s***) but that aside university is amazing and would love to continue my master's here
Brunel is a nice campus and lecturers are good for the most part. I had a fun time, despite the fact it isn’t really in London. Takes roughly an hour to get anywhere exciting. Which is good and bad as you don’t spend loads of money all the time, Uxbridge town is fine, enough to do, safe although some loopy folk in town. There is a fantastic place to eat called Ottimo. You have to go.
Great university, i stayed on campus 3/3 years, something I didn't know was possible. But surely they try and squeeze everyone in as much as they can. The campus is huge, feels like a small town and made me feel extremely safe while i was there. You are given free access to computers in the library, free book rentals, free usage of Mac Books, free laptop rentals. Maintenance in halls is incredible. You request something and they arrive in less than 24hrs sometimes within a few hrs to fix it. The only thing I would change is how far open the windows open for fresh air but I understand the safety regulations behind them!
Brunel university offers great options for students to experience uni life to it's fullest. Great extracurricular options and supportive staff. The facilities such as the library and study commons could be improved but all in all a great place to learn.
When i started at Brunel just luke any new new chapter in life it was a little daunting! Howevee Brunel turned that feeling very positive due to it's warm welcoming ambassadors who you could go to for anything and never feelnlost or alone. The campus is beautiful and small...the lectueres are always willing to go out their way to help you with assignments or any confusion you might of come across during the lectures.
Been here for 3 years so far and loved every part of it. The challenges I have faced have been very beneficial and I have had the support I have needed when required from both academics and fellow students across campus.
After getting accepted into major Universities all depending on my predicted grades, I fell ill before my IB finals and my parents changed their mind for sending me to UK. Later that changed but I was late and came to Brunel as a mistake and not knowing or hearing anything about it before I joined as I was in a very difficult position. I was a bit scared of what to expect from a university I had never even heard about. As years have gone by, Brunel has become family and a part of my life. It's not like people did not try to convince me to change university with a better name, even had a offer letter from London School of Economics for my second year, but university meant something more to me than just a name. It's the overall experience, Brunel is a 5/5 star in that category!
Uni is too far for people living in london. If you are living in london best to move near uni or apply for accommodation. There is 9 o clock letures which I always missed because I was living in london and travelling. Uni doesnt record lectures which was a massive disadvantage for me as I wasnt able to catch up on things I missed. Computer science department doesnt let people choose their own groups for group projects which again is really bad as I got people who was the reason for me to drop out. Softwares installed on labs are outdated this point was raised by students but no improvements made. Labs teachers are really useless and half of the time they are not even present. This is my experience from 3 years back idk if the uni improved or not by this time. Campus life is good, societies and sports are active. Again this is not a negative review just my experience and everyones experience is differrnce
Overall it’s a good uni but some lecturers can’t speak proper English or have a very heavy accent. Student union isn’t really for students and more a political battleground for Indians, in terms of food places it’s very limited and overpriced for no reason. They also tend to do rennovations during term time for some stupid management issues.
As far as the people I met at Brunel, they are some of the best I’ve ever had the pleasure of meeting. However, the university is a shambles. My dissertation supervisor quit in the middle of my final term and no one thought to tell me; I only heard it in passing and when I brought it up I was given a supervisor who was on loan to the university and buried in work. So much so that he would tell me to do things and then forget his own instructions. He made me start my project afresh, which I wouldn’t have had a problem with except for the fact that in the end I was marked low for doing what he advised me to do. When I complained to my personal tutor I was told that there was no use pursuing it officially because it would be my word against his. If I had it to do all over again I’d definitely be more conscious of the issues I’ve raised and choose another university where I would have been treated fairly because now I am stuck with a degree which is more of a hinderance than anything.
I studied BA Industrial Design and Technology at Brunel from 2014-2018. I do not recommend this uni to any perspective design applicants. The curriculum is extremely inflexible and unfocused. There are no room to customise your course, because modules are pre-selected for you. There are no direct relations between the classes taught at each level. It feels like taking an introductory course in a different and unrelated field every year. Knowledge being taught in class can be found on YouTube easily and does not have real-life applications. Professors are very bias and engineering orientated. Very high faculty retention rate, meaning even the professor don't want to teach here. Workload surpasses the average all the time. Extremely inconvenient to reach London( do not believe the advertisement) Workshop facilities are limited and always crowded. Technicians are unwelcoming and grumpy all the time. Asking them a question feels like asking to borrow money from them.
Brunel is a tight knit community, where you will meet atleast 15 people you know from walking one end of the campus to the other. It has a vibrant student life. There are a variety of courses and amazing facilities.
The campus is amazing, only a few extras need adding such as more water fountains. Halls are a good experience and you have cleaners Monday to Friday. Lots of sports clubs to join! I haven't used the careers service yet but they look very helpful.
Brunel is an amazing university to be in , being a closed campus uni it gives you the opportunity to meet people of all cultures bf live with them . Also the union is great as they try to run so many events and services for the students
Brunel Campus has to be one of the best. It's lively fun and there's always something going on. I think the clubs and societies are as good as the people who run them and they're usually quite passionate about their own clubs. My own experience with the Students Union has been really helpful, there's also a bunch of other services for all kinds of situations where you'd need help, like personal issues, or study groups, free Brunel therapy. The job office is pretty awesome, there's also online help where you can look at vacancies, as well as a volunteering section. So internet/Wi-fi is interesting, Wi-fi can be a bit dodgy if you're on the edges of campus or sometimes on the very side rooms of Fleming, most places it's pretty strong and stable. Internet connections established by ethernet cable is always really good, I don't actually remember internet dropping at all in the dorms when it's connected. All in all, the atmosphere over here is amazing, I really enjoyed my course as well.
Brunel University has helped me develop professionally through offering many schemes such as the Mentoring Scheme and the Brunel Plus Scheme. The professional development centre have been great in supporting me in applying for work placements abroad, giving me careers advice and helping me improve my CV so I can stand out to employers when I graduate.
There really isn't much going on extra-curricular-wise unless you are sporty. It would seem Brunel and the union divert funds away from arts and other societies in favour of sport as it brings the most acclaim to the university.
Only want your money. Lecturers just read from slides and no support for exams in terms of structure. They just said read from the textbooks. Not much career services had some guest talks some ok some cancelled and not even rescheduled. No support if you haven't done a level maths for BSc economics
