Oxford Brookes offers a wide choice of undergraduate degrees. All of our courses are designed to help students gain valuable, practical skills and prepare them for employment. 

Teaching and learning

Oxford Brookes has a strong global reputation for teaching.  As well as being ranked second for teaching among the UK’s modern universities (Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings 2020), our staff have won 11 National Teaching Fellowships. The fellowships reflect our teaching staff’s enthusiasm, expertise, and willingness to look for new and fresh approaches to teaching.

Undergraduate students at Oxford Brookes have lots of opportunities to gain practical skills and hands-on experience. Most courses offer either work placements, or opportunities such as working on projects for real clients or learning with a mentor.

Support

Oxford Brookes provides lots of support for its undergraduate students. As a student at Brookes, you will have an academic adviser to guide you during your studies. All students can easily access study skills advice, and international students can take classes to perfect their academic English, including some credit-bearing classes. There is plenty of personal support available, too, and a dedicated International Student Advice Team (ISAT).


The University’s buildings include the stylish, award-winning John Henry Brookes Building on the Headington campus, with high-quality teaching and learning facilities including an excellent library.
Specialist facilities include purpose-built, industry-level engineering workshops, and high-spec computing and digital media facilities. For healthcare students, there are specialist clinical simulation suites. Completely refurbished facilities for life sciences include a large new teaching lab, ideal for cross-discipline working, new student-orientated spaces, and the Sinclair Annex, home to the Bioimaging Centre.

Accommodation


Oxford Brookes University offers a range of accommodation, including self-catered single study-bedrooms and studio apartments in student halls. If you make Oxford Brookes your firm choice, you will be guaranteed a room in one of your five hall choices.
A number of halls offer accommodation specifically for postgraduate students and mature students (aged over 21). 
Students who’d prefer to live in shared houses can find accommodation through Brookes Lettings. The University can also give advice on finding private accommodation.

IT Facilities


IT facilities comprise over 1,000 open-access PCs including more than 350 computers in the Headington library, plus free, self-service laptop loan in or near all Oxford Brookes’ libraries. There is also free Wi-Fi in halls of residence and across campus, and a virtual learning environment enabling you to study whenever and wherever suits you best.
City life

With up to 40,000 students in town, Oxford is a great place to live and learn – it’s young, diverse and energetic. Whether you’re looking for pubs or clubs, riverbanks or green spaces, busy markets with great street food or brand names in the Westgate, Oxford has it covered.  In terms of culture, the city has important museums like the Ashmolean and Pitt Rivers as well as contemporary art galleries (Modern Art Oxford), lots of venues for live music, and theatres ranging from bigger spaces like the Oxford Playhouse to more intimate ones like the Old Fire Station and the Pegasus. Oxford is home to many beautiful parks to relax in with friends, exercise or even revise in. What's more, Oxford is just over an hour away from other major cities including London and Bristol.

Students' Union


A hub for social activities, Brookes Union helps students get involved in the wider university life. Over 100 clubs and societies are run through the Union, giving you great opportunities to meet new people with shared interests. The Union also runs a bar on Headington Campus and works with partners to put on club nights and events. The Union’s other key purpose is providing students with support through its independent advice service. 

Sport

Oxford Brookes is a great university for sport. In particular, it’s a top university for rowing, with Brookes students and alumni having achieved Olympic successes.
Brookes Sport offers opportunities for everyone, whether you are looking to take up a new sport, get fit, or simply relax. Facilities include a gym, swimming pool, climbing wall, and regulation-size sports pitches for University fixtures.
