Services for International Students

Brunel University London offers a range of services for international students that aim to assist them with their academic, personal, and social lives while at the University. Brunel International is a key contact point for all international students, with over 40 staff members in various departments able to supplement general academic support.

For new students, Brunel runs a popular 3-day orientation course recommended by 95 per cent of past participants. Student Services also organises regular trips, events, and workshops for students, while a personal tutor provides personal support. If you wish to travel to the UK with your family, the University runs a special family and partners club.


A recent survey placed Brunel graduates 13th in the UK for average starting salaries, with the figure of £22,000 being almost £3,000 above the national average. The University also excels in student satisfaction across physiotherapy, politics and history.


REF 2021, an independent assessment of the quality of research at universities across the country, placed 21.1% of Brunel’s submitted work in this top category, up from 14.3% in 2014, the last time the REF was conducted – and with work submitted from a total of 659 researchers, compared to 605 last time. Overall, 72.7% of Brunel’s submissions were assessed as being world-leading or internationally excellent, an increase from the previous score of 61%.


Brunel University London offers accommodation both on and off campus. Housing often compares favourably to other London prices, and the University Housing Office supports all students. Over 4,500 rooms are available on campus, with en-suite facilities standard in the 34 residence halls. Bedding is also provided, and linen is changed once a week.

The University has invested over £400 million in halls of residence and campus infrastructure in the last decade, and during the 2012 Olympic Games, the South Korean Olympic and Canadian Paralympic teams stayed at Brunel accommodation.


Brunel University London's campus is based in Uxbridge, on the western edge of London. Uxbridge is in a prime transport location, with a main motorway nearby. Direct transport links are available to Heathrow airport. Central London is also just a short ride away by underground metro.

As a campus university, Brunel can satisfy most needs on-site without the need to journey in and around London. On campus, a student is never more than ten minutes’ walk away from study facilities, halls of residence, or the library. There is a bank and an insurance office, a pharmacy, and two general shops where you can buy groceries, international newspapers, and stationery.
