Oxford Brookes is one of the UK’s leading modern universities, located in an inspiring city where students make up 24% of the population. You’ll be joining an innovative, diverse community where you'll be supported to flourish and develop the skills you need to create your future.
As the only UK university in the QS world ranking of top 50 institutions under 50 years old (QS, 2018) and among the world elite in 16 subjects (QS, 2017), we enjoy an international reputation for teaching excellence and innovation.
Our strong links with business and industry provide exceptional hands-on learning opportunities and connections with employers, with 93.2% of graduates in work and/or further study 6 months after graduating (HESA, 2017).
We also provide top-quality support services to help every student achieve their best academically and personally. We continue to invest in our multi-award winning facilities and campuses, and with £220 million expected to be invested over the next 10 years, Oxford Brookes is an exciting place to be.
Overall, this is a fantastic place to learn, and despite being a part time student I feel very at home here. I love the extensive library and feel very motivated to work and achieve. Oxford is a wonderful student city too, and you will certainly not regret coming here.

The Oxford Brookes TSR Team
The best way to find out if Oxford Brookes is the place for you is to come and see it for yourself. It's your opportunity to see where you could live and learn with accommodation and campus tours, talk to the academics teaching your subjects, and chat to our friendly team of Student Ambassadors to get the real student perspective on life at Brookes.
You can also meet the experts and attend talks about finance, the applications process, entry requirements and support.
We also offer campus tours throughout the year which are a perfect way of getting a feel for the place if you can’t make it to an Open Day.

Student Life in Oxford
We have halls on and around all our Oxford campuses, which are linked to the other halls and campuses, the city centre and the train station by our BROOKESbus service - which you get a free bus pass for if you live in halls!
Most halls have a 38 week contract, with some having up to 50 week contracts for students on longer courses or who want to stay in Oxford over the summer.
2018-19 prices range from £111 per week for a self-catered, single-study bedroom with a shared kitchen and bathroom, to around £160 per week for en suite accommodation. Studio flats are approximately £200 per week.
If you apply on time and make Oxford Brookes your firm choice on UCAS Track, then you are guaranteed a place in halls.
