Hi, thanks for thinking about Brookes!

I’m a current philosophy student at Brookes so obviously I’ll tell you that I love it there
I think everyone is super friendly, there's lots of support, plenty of societies, lots of nightlife in town as well as plenty of societies and sports clubs.
But if you value stats and rakings too, Oxford Brookes does great there too. For example:
Brookes is the UK’s #1 university for teaching and research in THE Young University rankings 2018.
Brookes is the only UK uni ranked in the QS University World Rankings Top 50 Under 50.
We have risen 16 places in the guardian league table in the past two years.
And we are “among the world’s top universities” in 14 subjects according to the QS world rankings.

I do find all of these stats super impressive which does make me really proud to be a Brookes student, however,
I personally believe that a good classification degree with plenty of work experience and showing passion for your career or subject is more important than a degree from any university in particular. For me and I also believe a lot of employers, it’s far more important that you are a well rounded person than someone with a degree from a ‘prestigious’ uni.
To help students who may want to work abroad after university we not only use traditional degree classifications (1st, 2:1, 2:2 etc.) but we also use GPA which is internationally recognised. Here's some more information: https://www.brookes.ac.uk/students/y...point-average/

If you have any more questions about Brookes please let me know!

Thanks so much,
