Oxford Brookes University's popularity with students increases year on year. Why? Its national and international reputation for excellence in learning, teaching and research must be one reason.

And then there's the seal of approval from the results of government teaching quality and research assessments in which top marks have been achieved in a number of areas. In addition, the University was awarded a prestigious Queen's Anniversary Prize in February 2001 for its MSc course in Development Practice which trains humanitarian professionals to work with victims of war disaster and urban poverty.
