Today (Wednesday 1 March) marks the tenth year of Oxford Brookes’ India Office.

The anniversary is a clear signal of the University’s continued commitment to students and partnerships in India and its role of being an institution with a truly international outlook.

Through our work we speak with so many prospective students and parents across India. This allows us to personally deliver the message that Oxford Brookes is one of the UK’s leading modern universities which enjoys an international reputation for teaching excellence and innovation as well as strong links with business and industry.
