Founded in 1966, Brunel University London is a campus based university offering a multitude of undergraduate, postgraduate and research opportunities. Our mission is to combine a thorough academic grounding with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative skills you will need to apply your knowledge in the real world.
Relevant to Industry and Society
Professional institutions accredit many of our courses; these institutions are recognised by employers and can offer membership or exemption towards further study. Brunel also has a strong research ethos informing our teaching, the community and the world around us and our postgraduate taught courses focus on developing expertise and skills to research and industry standard.
We are located in Uxbridge, west London which has more than 300 shops, a multiplex cinema, dozens of bars and restaurants. You’ll be joining a campus-based university which has all the resources you need within a 10 minute walk: accommodation, a bank, medical centre, pharmacy, shop and a gym. You can be in central London via Uxbridge underground station within 30 minutes and our close proximity to Heathrow airport makes us a popular choice for international students.
