Oxford Brookes or Surrey??Watch
At Oxford Brookes, the students were very friendly, and the facilities are good there as well. They provide free bus passes, which reduces the cost of buying a bus card, and I don't think Surrey does this. I love the historical buildings that are there, and the accommodation is close to the main campus, likewise with Surrey. There is a lot of jobs available in the town, since it is a tourist place. The timetable for practicals vary a lot, and some have said that they didn't do any practicals for a month or so - which kind of puts me off, because I want to practice my laboratory skills a lot, and doing many practicals seem to be the answer. I don't know how the timetable for Surrey is though either.
To be honest I cannot think of any more cons for either of the universities. But, I do have a higher entry requirement from Surrey, and reduced offer from Oxford Brookes.

I am currently a student at Oxford Brookes, so please feel free to ask me anything about the course, the university or general uni life!
I'm a current Nursing Student at Oxford Brookes and sometimes cross paths with BioMedical Science students. My friends who are currently taking the course and graduating this year have loved it. they have spent lots of times in the labs and as Brookes is a modular university which means there is a list of modules which you can choose from (other than the core ones) allowing you to focus on areas you are more interested in which really helps when your writing lots of assignments on it! another great thing is the health and life science ball where we all get together each year from drinks a mini buffet and the chance to dress up also if there are any sports or evening activities you'd be interested the timetable works well with fitting in. If you'd like to find out a little more here's a link to the website. I hope this has helped a little-https://www.brookes.ac.uk/courses/undergraduate/biomedical-science also it is the 1st in the UK for teaching and research Times Higher Education Young University Rankings, 2018.
good luck whichever you choose!
