Great university, be sure that you're ready to put in the hard work yourself! You'll find a lot of the learning experience is left to you.

Truly one of the best Universities you could attend. A great campus, community, teaching style and so much more. Amazing!

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 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.

Extremely disappointed with Brunel. Library resources are bad and level of teaching is low. I would hardly describe Brunel as an educational institution, more like for profit business.

Mostly pretty good, some things to do with my particular school (engineering and design) could be a lot better organised. Exams have a very fair layout and rules. Facilities for doing work are however very good!
