About Brunel University London

Brunel is a world-class university based in Uxbridge founded in 1966, West London over 40 years old, with the mission to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by its namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Brunel is a campus-based university situated in Uxbridge, West London, and is home to nearly 15,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide.

The university places great value on the usefulness of research, which improves the understanding of the world around and informs up‑to‑the‑minute teaching. Research is responsible for much of the university’s collaborative work with business, industry and the public sector, providing opportunities for work experience, demonstrating the commitment to producing professionally-minded graduates that employers want to recruit.

Why Select Brunel University?

Excellent education and research potential

Brunel Business School has won the Times Higher Education Awards Business School of the Year 2013. The 2008 Research Assessment Exercise (RAE) judged 82% of the Brunel Univessity’s research to be of international standing, leading to 54.5% increase research funding from the Higher Education Funding Council, compared to the sector average increase of 7.8%.

Wide range of courses

The university offers a wide range of study programmes for both undergraduates and postgraduates. The university has high ratings in national assessments and league tables. This year Brunel was rated Top 5 in London for overall Student Satisfaction.

All Your Needs on One Campus

The big plus of living in a campus-based university is that the majority of your needs are catered for on-site, including the Library and Computer Centre, academic and teaching buildings, welfare services, catering and social facilities and even the halls of residence, if you are living in University accommodation.

You can organise most of your day-to-day needs without leaving the campus. There is a bank, a pharmacy, and a general shop where you can buy groceries, newspapers, stationery and even top up your phone card. The Computer Centre sells a range of IT-related products such as printers, network cables, memory sticks and disks, and the Students’ Union hosts a weekly fruit and veg market and Fair trade stalls.

Easy access

The University is just a 20-minute walk – or a short bus ride – from Uxbridge underground station, so it is a straightforward journey into the centre of the capital. There is also a night bus that can bring you from central London to the edge of the campus. The town of Uxbridge itself, which still has buildings dating back to its time as a Georgian market town, is a thriving commercial and business centre. Its major shopping complexes, The Pavilions and the Chimes Centre, boast a wide range of shops, cafes and a nine-screen multiplex cinema.

Higher offers for the Brunel graduates

Brunel graduates enjoy the 13th highest starting salaries in the UK, according to the recent Sunday Times Good University Guide. Their average salary of £22,323 is almost £3,000 more than the national average.

Meeting the demands of employers

Brunel is committed to producing the professionally minded and skilled graduates that employers seek for. The university has achieved a good record consistently in the graduate employment market – Brunel’s Placement and Careers Centre has received a national award as the Best University Placement Service for the third year running. Brunel graduates regularly earn amongst the highest graduate starting salaries.
