Brunel University London is a campus-based university situated in Uxbridge, West London, and is home to 14,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide. Founded 50 years ago, its distinctive mission is to combine teaching and research excellence with the practical and entrepreneurial approach pioneered by its namesake, Isambard Kingdom Brunel. The University has invested nearly £400 million in buildings and infrastructure over the last decade, including new and refurbished accommodation and social, teaching and sporting facilities. It now has 4,500 student rooms on site and an indoor athletics track used on a daily basis by world-class athletes.
The WP Office runs visits and activities primarily for schools and colleges in the six west London boroughs of Brent, Ealing, Hammersmith & Fulham, Harrow, Hillingdon and Hounslow. It also engages to a lesser degree with institutions in other London local authorities, depending on staff availability. Activities for learners in Years 6 to 13 range from campus visits to subject-specific workshops, IAG sessions and master classes.
Brunel Summer Schools are restricted to local students and are by invitation only, likewise the nationally renowned Urban Scholars Saturday School programme.
Brunel was awarded the Buttle UK Quality Mark for its work with care leavers.
