    Before coming to Brookes I studied the International Baccalaureate at the Insistut International de Lancy in Geneva, Switzerland. I chose Brookes because they were the only university that wanted an interview with me and the city of Oxford is a great place to study the course I am currently on.

    The course has been really great. It is enabling me to explore different areas of town planning and to see which ones I preferred (such as urban design, transport planning, local planning, etc). The student body on my course is what really makes my course enjoyable, we all get along fantastically well and it makes it so much easier and fun to study at Brookes. The facilities are also a big advantage as it a modern university especially with the John Henry Brookes Building now open.

    My advice to others would be to enjoy studying at Brookes and work hard but at the same time have fun whilst doing it!
