What can I study?

We offer a range of undergraduate and postgraduate courses with a January start, in areas such as Business, Marketing, Finance, Built Environment, Hospitality and Public Health.

“Ranked in the top 11 of the safest student cities in England”

“Ranked 6th in the UK for teaching”

“Among the world’s top universities in 21 subject areas”

How to apply


You can apply via UCAS as a full-time undergraduate home student to join one of our January-start courses.

If you are using prior credit (or transferring from another university) to start in January, please contact us at admissions@brookes.ac.uk so we can support you with your application.

Postgraduate applications should be submitted directly to the University.
