Brunel international student case study
Course: MA Creative Writing: The Novel
‘Brunel was one of the few universities that had a creative writing programme focused on novel writing, and it really stood out from others. The modules as well as the instructors caught my interest!
‘I loved everything about Brunel. Cafe Rococo and their vanilla lattes are high up on my list of favorite things – meeting with classmates there to discuss writing was the highlight of my week during term time. I felt like I was part of a little writing family, which was amazing.
‘Brunel never felt like a huge university where you could get lost amongst all the students; it was cosy and familiar, and I felt welcome from the start! And Uxbridge is a really nice place, with great shopping, some cool old buildings (although let’s be honest, coming from America most of the buildings were cool and old to me!), and two tube lines for easy jaunts into central London.
‘The accommodation was ace. The en suite was so nice, and the shared kitchen was always bustling and welcoming.
‘My advice to other international students going to Brunel is to be open to new things, especially meeting new people! Everyone is probably just as nervous or lonely as you might feel during your first days. Don’t be afraid to attend events or functions on campus, or to join clubs! Also don’t shy away from making the trek to central London often – London is absolutely one of the best cities I’ve ever experienced.’
