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 organized 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.

  3. Changing course: If a student transfers to a course outside the MBA program the scholarship will be withdrawn.

  5. Amendment of Fee Waivers: Fee waivers are applied at the start of the academic year as part/all of a scholarship entitlement and will not be amended once the fee waiver has been processed.

Scholarship payments made prior to temporarily withdrawing will not generally be requested to be repaid and remaining payments would generally be paid once the student returns to complete that level of study. 
  7. Suspension of Study: Should a student be suspended for any reason, scholarship payments would be withdrawn and consideration of reinstatement will be dependent on the disciplinary outcome.
  8. Repeat/Extended Study: Repeat periods of study, and periods of temporary withdrawal that result in extended periods of study, are not supported by additional scholarship payments. Scholarship entitlement is for the maximum duration of each award and entitlement is not extended if the overall course duration alters.
  9. Withdrawal from Study: A student who withdraws from their program prior to completion and who is in receipt of a scholarship award will not normally be requested to repay scholarship payments made up to the point of withdrawal; however, entitlement to all future scholarship payments and/or adjustments, cease immediately a student withdraws.
