London North 2018 -- Monday 5 March 2018
We are delighted that our London North Championship is being hosted by Brunel University London.
Based in Uxbridge, Brunel University London received its Royal Charter in 1966 with the distinct purpose to be the home of technological education, championing innovation and advancement, and giving the UK the knowledge base it needed to compete on the international stage.
The university conceived a brand of education, and later research, which was overwhelmingly geared towards the needs of industry and, echoing the spirit and vision of our namesake Isambard Kingdom Brunel, did so with flair and rigour. The university’s ambition was to equip students for the world of work and to address society’s challenges on a global scale.
The challenges have changed, but Brunel’s aims are as innovative and ambitious as they always were – to develop research and educational programmes informed by, and tailor-made for, those who benefit; and to give students the academic education and personal skills needed to become a success in the real world.
The Championship is in partnership with the Knowing our Rights research project, which aims to provide analysis, and to deepen and increase understanding, of the application of the European Convention on Human Rights (ECHR) in the UK, based on academic scholarship and engagement with the public, and young people in particular.
