Brunel has a strong and welcoming community
Why did you decide to study at Brunel?
The Masters in Children, Youth and International Development suited my interests and passions better than any other programme I had seen. The campus setting of the University, as well as the high level of international student enrollment, served to further encourage my desire to study here.
What do you like about studying at Brunel?
Aside from my specific programme, I love that Brunel has a strong and welcoming community on campus. I have really enjoyed getting to know and building friendships with people from all around the world. I think that the free language classes are an incredible opportunity to get exposure to a language which one may not have in their home country. I also like that, in Uxbridge, we are connected to central London without having to live big city life all the time.
What is your opinion of the university accommodation?
The accommodation provides students with everything they need to live comfortably. It's nice to have single rooms.
What advice would you give to a new student at Brunel?
I would advise international students to look into applying for the International Scholarship. It's not only financial help, but an opportunity to network with many different people and become part of a small community within the larger Brunel community. I also suggest that anyone starting at Brunel take the time to really look into everything about which they may have questions. Everyone here is very friendly and willing to help, so take advantage to really get to know your future home.
What social activities are you involved in?
Active Brunel. Arabic language classes.
How do you plan to use your degree in your career?
I plan to return to the USA and work with a youth serving organization in some capacity.
