Brunel is a great university if you are specifically a scientist or an engineer, the teaching staff are actually very well qualified and experienced. The main problem I had when I was there was accomodation, postgraduates were placed in the same halls as first years and final year students and tension levels were very high. There was a lot of conflict between scientists who have hugh amounts of course work and the social science/media students many of whom just sat around all day. The Uxbridge campus it must be said has one of the worse university libraries in the country, I actually ended up spending a lot of money on travelling into the centre of London to use the British library travel cards were about £4.00 per day. Though Uxbridge does have a booming industrial sector the nightlife consists of about 2 pubs and one very dodgy night club (if you think your going to spend every night clubbing in London your either loaded or have lots of friends). One good thing about the uxbridge campus is its great little art centre which runs free courses in pottery, photography etc and is available to any one on campus during term time. I found hand building pots was great stress relief!

Good comments GEMIMATHECAT, I spent 2 years at Brunel, although I disagree with your comments about the science & engineering, they where excellent and state of the art 30 years ago but since then no money has been spent on any improvments, its outdated and past it.
