You want a degree, but you want an experience unlike anyone else’s. You want to throw yourself in and make the most of it. Adventurers want to try new things and expand their horizons!
We have over 100 active societies for you to get involved in - you’ll definitely find something you’ve never done before. Societies run activities and trips, so you’ll be experiencing new things all the time. Societies not adventurous enough? Look into our Study Abroad programme - we send students around the world to work, study, and change their lives.
You’re always thinking about the next competition. Your degree needs to go hand-in-hand with training, and you want to have the best facilities to work with. Sports stars need to work hard to win big, and have the support they need to do it.
We’ve got a stack of awards in our trophy cabinet, and the facilities our athletes need to win them. We’re currently the number one university for rowing in the UK, and we compete in British Universities and College Sport (BUCS) in 33 sports. Elite athletes can apply for our Talented Athlete Scholarship Scheme and Santander’s Sports Scholarships. Oxford Brookes opens the door to big sport success.
You want to make a difference. You want to help people every day, or find a solution to a problem and build a business around it. You may not know exactly what you want to do, but you know that anything is possible. World changers need opportunities to get started.
You want to make a difference, and we want our students to be socially responsible. It’s a perfect match! You’ll have endless opportunities to get involved with volunteering - you’ll find charities to do with the environment, arts, sport, education and helping people from all walks of life. And on the business side of things, we have the Oxford Brookes Social Entrepreneur Awards (OBSEA) - a national award-winning programme designed to help you make a positive difference to society.
You see the world differently. You see the potential to make something out of everything - or something from nothing. You want expert teaching to hone your skills, and inspiration from your surroundings. Creators need courses designed to bring out their best work.
With us, you can make your visions reality. Whether you’re seeing skyscrapers, film making or fine art, we have courses designed to give you opportunities that you won’t find anywhere else. In our inspirational city and with specialist teaching, you’ll be able to explore your creativity more than ever before. We started life as the Oxford School of Art after all!
You are a champion of those around you. You want to stand up for the people and make your university the best it can be. Student champions need opportunities to get their voice heard.
Our students’ union exists to support, represent and inspire the students of Oxford Brookes. And we’re looking for someone like you. You can become a student representative to solve problems and shout about successes, and attend Union Council meetings to have a say about what’s next for the union. Volunteer with the Safety Bus to keep your fellow students safe, and even run for election to be a union officer. Student champions are the heart of Oxford Brookes!
You don’t know what you want to do yet, so you want to study a subject you enjoy and see where it takes you. You are excited for the university experience, without the focus of a specific career at the end of it. Finding your future will come naturally with all your new experiences!
We don’t expect you to have found your calling in life already. At Brookes, you’ll get lots of opportunities to try new things and to find out more about what you love doing - through your course, volunteering opportunities or around 100 Brookes Union student clubs and societies. You can have a good time, get a degree, and shape your future career path as you go. Our support services are here to help you along the way too - with your work and with any other challenges you face.
