Before coming to Brookes, I studied A levels art Richmond upon Thames College. I chose Oxford Brookes as a place to study because of the great location, networking opportunities, close to London, one of the best universities to study ITMB. It is brilliant, exclusive and promising. It is a courses where a lot of opportunities turn up throughout whole 4 years of studies. Excellent teaching staff and great facilities, friendly people.

My advice for others would be definitely go for a placement year and be active in university life. The more extra curricula activities you have done, the better chance you have at securing the best job. I did my industrial placement at Wolfson Microelectrics, Newbury with their Information Systems Department. It is a brilliant experience, perfect for CV. You get treated like a professional who is still learning. People do not expect you to know and do everything.
