In 2016, Brunel celebrated 50 years as a university. However, our history can be traced back much further to 1798 through our predecessor colleges of Borough Road College, Maria Grey College, Shoreditch College and the West London Institute of Higher Education and as well as through Acton Technical College then Brunel College. Our rise since 1966 has been impressive and our reputation grows year on year. Now a university of 12,746 students – 3,309 students engaged in postgraduate and research study – our special approach is to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by Isambard Kingdom Brunel.

Isambard Kingdom Brunel (1806-1859) is one of the great British engineers of the 19th century. Isambard took on formal training as an engineer and went on to build twenty-five railways lines, over a hundred bridges, including five suspension bridges, eight pier and dock systems, three ships and a pre-fabricated army field hospital.To add to this he was a keen social engineer, building housing estates, churches and hospitals.


Brunel University campus is located 20 minutes by car from Heathrow airport and 45 mintues from central London. There are many interesting parts of West London close by such as Richmond, Kew Gardens and Ealing.

“Brunel supported my unconventional approach of sourcing my own apprenticeship opportunity as a manager to a racing driver where I achieved my highest career achievement.”

Brunel offered a postgraduate Management course that was perfect for my career path. While studying at Brunel I came across mentors and career counsellors that assisted me in integrating with various business networking events hosted on campus. Brunel is a place to fast forward your opportunity to fulfil your goals.
