Our students love Oxford Brookes for our excellent facilities, stand-out links to industry and placements, and supportive staff. But don't just take our word for it, see what they have to say.

Romel Yared

“The academics have really helped me in achieving my end goal, especially with my final projects. They helped me out when I was hitting creative blocks and especially since the second year, they have been pushing me to just exceed my limits.”

Romel Yared, Architecture

Tori Baker

“I would tell someone considering university that it is 100% worth going. It’s not just three more years of education - the experiences you get and the contacts you make may impact your life and career forever.”

Tori Baker, Fine Art

George Loyd

“The thing that sets Oxford Brookes apart from other universities has to be its facilities. The John Henry Brookes Building is second to none. Adding to that, the sport here at Brookes is some of the best in the country.”

George Loyd, Criminology

Emilia Gennard

“I am on placement for twelve months and I’ve been working now for five months at the Charlotte Street Hotel in London. The placement really attracted me to the course because I knew I wanted to get experience in the industry before I went out and graduated.”

Emilia Gennard, International Hospitality and Tourism Management

Dan Pope

“The thing that stood out to me about Brookes was its links with the Children’s Hospital at the John Radcliffe Hospital. I’ve been really lucky to have a placement on Tom’s Ward, which has been really beneficial to my development.”

Dan Pope, Nursing (Children's)
