About Brunel University and Scholarship
Brunel University London, a venerable institution whose roots extend back to the Acton Technical College in the 1950s, has not only stood the test of time but has evolved into a dynamic and influential “plate glass university.” The university’s inception can be traced to the division of Acton Technical College in 1957, a significant moment that gave rise to the Brunel College of Technology. This new institution, named in honor of the renowned British engineer Isambard Kingdom Brunel, was envisioned as a dedicated hub for the education of chartered engineers.
The architectural landscape of the campus, designed in the Brutalist style by Richard Sheppard, Robson & Partners, Architects, reflects the forward-thinking vision of the university. Over the years, Brunel has continually adapted to meet the evolving needs of education, embracing architectural expansion and innovation as part of its commitment to providing a cutting-edge learning environment.
In 1960, the college achieved the prestigious status of a College of Advanced Technology, underscoring its commitment to technological advancement and academic excellence. The subsequent decision to expand to Uxbridge marked a pivotal moment in Brunel’s history, with official recognition as Brunel College of Advanced Technology in 1962. This strategic move not only reflected the institution’s commitment to growth but also positioned it as the tenth Advanced Technology College in the country.
The late 1990s witnessed a transformative masterplan for the campus, a comprehensive initiative that involved a substantial £250 million investment over ten years. This ambitious undertaking included the strategic sale of off-campus sites, with the resulting proceeds earmarked for the modernization and enhancement of facilities on the Uxbridge campus. Notable additions included a library extension, a state-of-the-art sports complex, renovated students’ union facilities, a new Health Sciences teaching center, and the construction of additional halls of residence.
Brunel University has consistently demonstrated academic excellence, earning favorable rankings in national and global assessments. Its impressive performance in esteemed rankings such as The Guardian and The Times attests to the institution’s academic prowess and commitment to providing a world-class education.
For graduates returning to Brunel for further studies, the Brunel Graduate Discount serves as a tangible demonstration of the university’s commitment to supporting its alumni. This discount program, designed for self-funding applicants who have previously completed their studies at Brunel, provides a financial incentive as they embark on their subsequent degree programs. It represents more than a financial benefit; it symbolizes the enduring connection between the university and its graduates, fostering a community that values continued education, achievement, and a shared commitment to academic excellence.
