Oxford Brookes is a leading modern British university, known for its strengths in teaching, innovative approaches to learning, and its focus on employability. The university has a well-established reputation for teaching, and a growing international reputation for research excellence, ranking second in the UK for teaching among modern universities (Times Higher Education (THE) Young University Rankings 2020), and with 94% of its research internationally recognised (REF, 2014). Students live, learn and socialise in Oxford. A centre of learning for centuries, Oxford is also a vibrant student city. It’s busy, culturally diverse and young – one in four of the city’s population are students. Big enough for a thriving nightlife scene, yet small enough to feel friendly, the city offers great food, entertainment, culture and shopping.
