University Overview

Established in 1966, Brunel University London is located in West London's Uxbridge town. It is a public research university that was named after Isambard Kingdom Brunel, a Victorian engineer. In August 2014, the university was organized into three major research institutes and three colleges after which the official name became Brunel University London. It is associated with prestigious organizations such as the European University Association and Association of Commonwealth Universities. Brunel is described as a ‘plate glass university’ because it was one amongst the group of universities that were established in the 1960s after the decisions of the University Grants Committee.

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.
