I recently graduated from Oxford Brookes University after studying history for three years at the Headington Campus. Overall the uni provided an excellent educational experience, as teaching varied from academic to practical styles, with both weekly lecturers and seminars. For History in particular the range of module available to select made it easy to cater your studies around topics you have a particular interest in. Also, the uni has an extensive range of materials and resources that are accessible both online and at the campus library, which was open 24/7.
The student life at Oxford Brookes was so much fun. There are numerous different sports on offer for students to play and different society groups, all which mix and host social events each week. The only negative I found was that unlike other unis, the Brookes student union was not really the centre of the social and nightlife scene, as the union bar was rarely that busy. However, as the city is so close to the campus (around a 20 min walk, 10 on the bus) there is a plethora of pubs and bars and a few nightclubs to suit all. I would definitely recommend this uni to any prospective student!
