About Brunel University London

Brunel University London is a campus based university founded in 1966. Brunel's mission is to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by its namesake, Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
Relevant to Industry and Society.

Brunel has a strong research ethos informing our teaching, the community and the world around us. Brunel’s postgraduate taught courses focus on developing expertise and skills to research and industry standard.



Brunel is located in Uxbridge, the town centre is just a 20 minute walk or short bus ride from campus, and has more than 300 shops, a multiplex cinema and dozens of bars and restaurants.

Uxbridge is compact and less busy than central London – which is very easy to get to from Uxbridge Station or West Drayton Station.

Campus living

Students on Brunel’s campus enjoy a strong sense of community with 13,000 students including 2,500 international students from over 110 different countries, so there's always something interesting going on.


Brunel’s halls provide high quality facilities and they are all on campus, meaning you are never more than 10 minutes away from the teaching, social and sporting facilities.

Campus accommodation is guaranteed for postgraduate students who have applied, met their conditions and confirmed their acceptance of an offer by 1 September.



Brunel offers a range of postgraduate scholarships, prizes and fee reductions.
