Having done my first degree at a university near London, I decided that for my Master’s I wanted a university that was fairly close to London so I could take advantage of the Capital without the cost and hassle of actually living in the centre. I also knew I wanted a university that was rated highly for its teaching and Brunel fitted the bill perfectly. It’s a great place and, with some 4,000 students living on campus, there’s a real sense of being part of a community. I chose to do my dissertation on the fraudulent consumer activity known as deshopping, and it was fantastic to have someone who was considered a leading researcher into this type of behaviour as my dissertation supervisor.
