16 Things You’ll Only Understand If You Studied at Oxford Brookes University

There are some things only an Oxford Brookes student can understand.

1. Telling people you go to university in Oxford, but not saying where exactly.

It’s not your fault if they automatically assume you go to Oxford rather than Brookes.

4. Falling in love with everything about Cowley Road.

Including the homeless man outside Tesco with the cute dog. Be kind to him.

5. Flirting with the barman in Cafe Baba for that free shot.

6. Being unable to resist the cheap yet possibly out of date alcohol from ‘Dodgy Delhi’. 

Beggars can’t be choosers when your student loan is running low and you’re too lazy to walk those extra 5 minutes to Tesco.
