The Requirements:  2 essays of 250 words each

Supplemental Essay Type(s): Why

Why are you interested in Brunel University London? (250 words)

This essay prompt is simple enough: Why are you interested in attending Brunel University London? Start by writing down everything that comes to mind. You can always cut the fat later. Next, get familiar with Brunel University London’s website (including: classes, professors, clubs, organizations, study abroad opportunities, alumni networks, location, etc.) and take notes. Next, marry your initial brainstorm with your notes and, before you know it, you will have a rough draft on your hands! Just remember: the more specific you can be, the better. Admissions is looking to accept applicants who are willing to go the extra mile to demonstrate interest and show they’re a good fit. 

Discuss your reasons for pursuing the program selected above. (250 words)

The admissions department at Brunel is looking for a specific type of response to this prompt. Luckily for you, there’s no guessing needed. Brunel wrote this handy guide to knocking your response to this prompt out of the park. To sum up: freewrite, tell admissions something new about yourself, demonstrate that you’re a good fit, project into the future, and get a second opinion. The most important tip is, “The majority [of the essay] (50-75%) should explain why you want to study your chosen course.” So, there you go! You have the recipe for success–now it’s time to ready, set, bake! (Any The Great British Bake Off fans in the house??) Good luck!
