“The teachers are really good. You can have a debate on the topic they’re teaching. Back in India there is a huge gap between teacher and student, but here I find all the teachers are really like friends, you can discuss anything with them.”
“I had some colleagues in my office who recommended Brookes and three friends of mine had graduated from Brookes. I selected this course because it offered an entrepreneurship option on setting up new businesses. I couldn't find this option on any other course. I also joined the student Entrepreneur’s Society, which is very good too. I love the city. I have an undergraduate architecture degree, so I love the city architecture. It’s very organised, very clean and very well maintained.”
“I was really amazed by the fact that in just 13 weeks, a semester, you can learn so much. Each semester adds so much more to your experience and personality.I never imagined I would learn so many things in architecture just in such a short time.”
“I specifically chose Oxford because it’s a student city – small, nice and people are warm. It’s close enough to London if you feel like you want to go to another city. So the best place to be!”
“I chose this course, the Masters in Trade and Logistics because it has been accredited by the Chartered Institute of Logistics and Transport (CILT). It has got its reputation back in India so it would be really beneficial for me to take this course and go back to India – the employability rate would be outstanding.”
“I chose Oxford Brookes for several reasons. Having been the named the ‘best modern university’ for 10 years in row told me the university was doing something right. Add in, the diversity of students Oxford Brookes provides, the strong reputation and the location and it’s a university you just can’t say no to. Oxford Brookes have helped me develop my skills to apply theories into real life situations which I believe will be very useful in my future career. They encourage a lot of independent studies rather than just spoon feeding the student which I believe is a very important skill to have especially if you’re planning to get a high level job.”
“I'm finding the course really exciting. I'm from India and in my first year, and I have already made contact with people from every part of the world. On my course I've worked in a team with students from Bulgaria, Italy, Spain and France, nationalities I've never met before! It is really interesting to meet people from different cultures and build up contacts for the future.”
“From the start of the course you are surrounded by people from the industry. Even if you don’t have a background in hospitality the tutors instantly make you feel part of it. If it wasn’t for this course I would never have had the opportunity to meet so many general managers. In the operations module you actually visit a hotel and they go into detail about all the challenges they face from front desk and operations to HR and social media. I’m glad I chose this course; I now have knowledge at an international level.”
