"Brunel University"

Having just graduated from Brunel and taking the last trip back to wear the gowns, I remembered just how good the last 3 years had been. Brunel has pretty much everything you need as a student. If you want to be the student who spends their time in the pub, there are nice recently refurbished on sit bars and a notoriously fun nightclub, if you want to get on with your work, there is an excellent library and computer facilities all over campus. The Student Union is helpful, and although it certainly isn't the cheapest university you will find, it has a real sense of community spirit, brought on by the relatively small, but ever-expanding campus

The surrounding area, Uxbridge, is a decent enough town. Not the worlds best, but it has a shopping centre, restaurants, bars, and certainly serves it's purpose. Liquid is a decent enough nightclub, but be sure to stay on the right side of the bouncers. There is of course central London just a tube ride away. The campus is ever-improving, and looks massively better than it did 3 years ago. The university have obviously put in real effort to rid itself of its image of 60's arcitecture and big concrete buildings.

Personally Brunel has given me nothing but good memories. Fortunate to arrive at the same time as a large group of guys with the same interests and habits as me, I have formed friends who will be lifelong, and we've already had numerous reunions even though we finished this May. The sporting side of the university, in my case football, was great, an excellent social side and hearty but friendly 'banter' between clubs. As a student studying English I was pleased the sports teams were not sominated by only sports science students, an academic area o which the university thrives.

Having managed to live Uni life to the full and luckily still obtain a decent grade I am full of praise for the place. I did occasionally wonder where all my tuition fees were going with 2 lectures a week for most of my time at Uni, but at the same time this does give you plenty of time for your coursework, and really no excuse if you don't get it done.

Sports facilities are great, and the teams are all very competitive, as is the university academically, far more than just an engineering university as it was years back. It is true what you are told, university is what you make of it, and if you are willing to give it a go, Brunel will repay you with a fantastic few years, and gives you all the opportunity you need to succeed in your degree.
