    I've got an offer letter from Oxford Brookes University. How good is the uni? How much value does a degree obtained from this uni have? Does this uni have a great campus?

    Hi @irsahfy,

    I’m an Oxford Brookes graduate, I graduated with a combined honours degree in Communications, Media and Culture & International Relations.

    I found Oxford to be an incredibly inviting environment for me to be in as a student. It was my first time in the UK as an international student and I couldn’t have asked for a better city in terms of things to do, places to see and people to meet.

    In terms of the value of a degree obtained.

    In my experience that really truly is up to how much value I put on myself as a graduate. I studied communications but the university offered so many opportunities to complement that. I worked closely with the Brookes Radio Society, found varying internships during my summers, went on an exchange to Japan for a semester and worked as a blogger and writer. My degree very much comes into consideration when I’ve applied to jobs, but it is only one aspect of my application.

    Lastly, our campus is great! I found the facilities to be one of the best part of studying here, there are so many beautiful study spaces with computers and resources of all kinds. If you need help with essays you have Upgrade, if you need help from lecturers they all have office hours, there are books aplenty and an even wider e-library you can access everywhere. Check out the Oxford Brookes instagram to see some of these facilities from up close.

    If you have any other questions, don’t hesitate to let me know!

    Best wishes,

    Abigail Jose
