About Brunel University:

Brunel University London, founded in 1966, is a university located in Uxbridge, London, United Kingdom. It was named after the Victorian engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel and in 2016, Brunel celebrated 50 years as a university. Brunel is organised into three colleges – Engineering, Design and Physical Sciences; Business, arts and social sciences; and health and life sciences – and three major research institutes – energy futures and environment; health and societies; and materials and manufacturing. Brunel is a campus-based university, which means students are never more than 10 minutes away from halls of residence, social and sports facilities, lecture theatres, or the library. It is also a member of the Association of Commonwealth Universities, the European University Association and Universities UK. Brunel is just a tube ride away from the bustling city of London, making it a go to for students wishing to experience a variety of cultural and social activities. Its students have access to specialist laboratories for electronic imaging, bioprocessing and experimental techniques, flight, driving and train simulators and a 3D body scanner. Many undergraduate students may also choose to undertake practical placements and projects as a part of their courses in the form of a sandwich year. A yearly design exhibition is held by Brunel's Department of Design called ‘Made In Brunel’ to promote and showcase the work of final year students to the rest of the design industry. Notable alumni include Jo Brand, an English comedian, writer and actress, John McDonnell, a British Labour Party politician who was appointed Shadow Chancellor in September 2015, and Sophie McShera, an English actress.
