Student Profiles

Paul Gearing and Onome Oghifobibi - Management in Health and Social Care

Maggie Dyer - Cancer Studies
"I chose Oxford Brookes because it was one of the best academic cities in the world. The facilities are gorgeous and state of the art, and the Health and Life sciences site is in a beautiful campus. The social life is great with stuff to do in the student union and opportunities to join societies. I found it very easy to make friends and I have made lifelong friends from my course, you can always find someone who wants to join you to the local pub. I am currently working at the Churchill hospital within the Haematology/Cancer Centre and would like to continue my career here. I would recommend my course to others. It’s been the greatest experience of my life!"
