( 4.1)
Oxford Brookes is one of the most exciting universities in the UK, highly regarded for the quality and breadth of its curriculum, its progressive approach toward tuition and the success of its graduates in securing competitive and meaningful employment. The university has a well-established reputation for teaching and a growing international reputation for research excellence, with 97% of its research internationally recognised (Research Excellence Framework, 2021). Students live, learn and socialise in Oxford. A centre of learning for centuries, Oxford is also a vibrant student city. It is culturally diverse and home to enough students for a thriving nightlife scene, yet small enough to feel friendly, with great food, entertainment, culture and shopping. As well as its three Oxford campuses, Brookes has a Swindon campus for locally based healthcare students.
