Brunel University London is a world-class university based in Uxbridge, West London. Now heading for 50 years old, our mission has always been to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
We place great value on the usefulness of our research, which improves our understanding of the world around us and informs up-to-the-minute teaching.
Research is responsible for much of our collaborative work with business, industry and the public sector, providing opportunities for work experience, and demonstrates our commitment to producing professionally-minded graduates that employers want to recruit.
We are a campus-based university, home to nearly 15,000 students from over 100 countries worldwide.
As with last year’s Writing Local | Thinking Global anthology, this year’s festival again offers a creative writing competition – specifically aiming to champion the diverse voices of our community.
