Brunel University London
Brunel University London
Brunel University London, is a diverse campus-based community committed to maintaining an environment that is welcoming and accessible for all students, staff and visitors. Established almost fifty years ago, the University's mission in terms of education has always been to combine academic rigour with the practical, entrepreneurial and imaginative approach pioneered by its namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel.
All aspects of life at Brunel - academic or otherwise - are underpinned by a full commitment to equality and diversity, with various services and departments at Brunel working to promote a diverse, equal and interconnected culture.
Over £300 million has been spent in recent years on building a state of the art campus, with significant funding invested in making Brunel fully accessible. Over the years many disabled students have chosen Brunel due to its high quality courses, its environment and, crucially, the accessibility of its accommodation, teaching and study spaces.
Two examples of the excellent services established at Brunel with disabled students in mind are the Disability and Dyslexia Service (DDS), its Assistive Technology Centre and the West London Assessment Centres at Brunel, RHUL and BNU. The DDS holds a Times Higher Award for outstanding support for disabled students, was ranked best for access by the Trailblazers network and was part of the successful bid to the Business Disability Forum which gave Brunel its Disability 'know how' award in 2014. Similarly the three Assessment Centres all received 100% pass ratings in their recent annual external audits.
The DDS team provides various forms of support for disabled students throughout their time at the university, including a range of support workers, information and advice about any aspect of physical accessibility, accommodation and academic study. This aims to enables the student to fulfil their potential and make the most of their time at Brunel.
If you are a current disabled student at Brunel or are considering applying to attend in the future, the DDS team would love for you to get in touch. If you are a disabled visitor planning to come to the University for the first time, please contact the DDS.
