Brookes Engage is an 18 month long programme of regular activities and events designed to support you to make a successful transition to university, or the world of work by giving you experiences and skills that will be beneficial to both.
In 2019-2021 Brookes Engage is running the pathways in the following subject areas:
The programme involves attending monthly workshops that will take place on campus at Oxford Brookes University. You will take part in academic workshops, plus general training workshops on topics that include: choosing the right university and course for
you, what life as a student is really like, study skills for university and interview and networking skills. All sessions have the aim of supporting you to become an independent and assertive learner.
We also run various cultural trips throughout the year. All students taking part in the programme are guarunteed a place on one of our Discover Brookes summer schools should they wish to apply.
You will also be given the opportunity to be mentored by an Oxford Brookes student to support you throughout the programme.
Brookes Engage will run from December 2019 – July 2021. Dates will depend on the subject pathway chosen.
Sessions will take place once a month, generally on Wednesdays. In addition to the monthly sessions there may be occasional events in the day, and some in the evening.
The Brookes Engage programme will help you work out what it is you want to do and what you need to do to get there. You will spend time in an academic environment improving your confidence and your ability to learn, and you will take part
in a range of extra-curricular activities that will be beneficial for both university and work applications. You will also make friends and have fun!
Brookes Engage students who complete the programme and go on to enrol at Oxford Brookes will be eligible to apply for a bursary of £1,000 in their first year, as part of a package of on-course support
