Mihir studied Mathematics and Statistics with Management and spent his placement as a Business Analyst at Virgin Trains.

“I came to Brunel because the

course included a variety of modules which I was keen to try. Brunel also offered a placement year, which many other universities did not, to help me prepare myself for the world of business. The biggest challenge I faced was finding a placement during the economic downturn. The Placement and Careers Centre at Brunel was very supportive, so I didn’t give up. My placement at Virgin Trains was a real eye opener. I took part in numerous projects, including project managing and leading a campaign, and I had the opportunity to take part in a Virgin Trains advert. It taught me to get more involved and to take on new challenges. I was also able to get valuable career advice from the CEO and other Directors across the company, which has helped me to set new career goals. As a student representative for the maths department, I found that issues were dealt with quickly and professionally. The lecturers make time to see you when you need advice on a module, but at the same time help you to think on your feet.�

Helping you onto the career ladder Career planning Our Placement and Careers staff will help you develop your career plan and suggest ways to enhance your employability. With an extensive careers library and interactive online service, regular workshops, employer presentations and forums targeted at specific subject areas, you will be able to make informed decisions from your first year onwards. Local, national and international recruiters target Brunel and there are typically over 1,000 employers advertising with us at any one time. Our autumn careers fair has also attracted nearly 80 major organisations!

Career opportunities for our graduates Since its foundation, Brunel University has always been focused on ensuring that our graduates have good employment prospects. Indeed it was one of the first universities to introduce the ‘sandwich course’ during which students spend a year working in industry. This ‘Professional Placement’ is as relevant today as it was then, helping our graduates to face the competition in the employment marketplace.

Ryan Pullen graduated with a First Class BSc in Mathematics I chose to study at Brunel as it is one of the top universities for Mathematics. I have always enjoyed maths and wanted to challenge myself at a higher education level. The campus is great and all the facilities such as halls of residence, catering, social and sports facilities, lecture theatres, the Library, and the Computer Centre are within 10 minutes’ walk. In the maths department, there is a dedicated computer room for maths students, so there is never any problem in finding a PC to use. The library is very well stocked, with plenty of space to study and 24 hour access during term time. The support from the lecturers is very good. You can see them during their ‘office hours’ or email them at any time. After spending three years studying for my degree, I was offered the opportunity to stay on at Brunel and do a PhD. As I had been successful at Brunel, not only by graduating with a first class degree, but also obtaining the Foster prize for ‘outstanding mathematical ability’ and a medal for best project, I saw it as advantageous for me to take up the opportunity. The excellent facilities and the friendly and supportive staff were a deciding factor in my decision to stay at Brunel. I did not even consider going elsewhere for my PhD. My research area is acoustic scattering in ducts, a topic I became familar with and enjoyed working on for my final year project. I am finding the work both challenging and rewarding – I know I made the right choice in choosing Brunel.
