            Oxford Brookes, an experience worth havingYI spent my Bachelor's and Master degree at Oxford Brookes University. Why did I do both at the same University? Because I love the place. They offer really high quality education which is supported with outstanding services for the students, from great access to Library and online Data base, to IT services. Besides, all teachers that I had were extremely helpful and open the trying to solve a problem or answer any questions. I didn't get the chance to enjoy the new library in full, but it sure gives the university a much more pleasant atmosphere to work in. I remend openly Oxford Brookes University, is not only located in one of the most beautiful cities in the UK, but it also offers you a wonderful educational experience.
