my son and me are just starting the long process of choosing and applying via UCAS to Uni's for 2009.

As he has Aspergers, I want him to go to a uni closer to home, such as Leeds, Sheffield or Manchester, However, he is very interested in Brunel Uni at Uxbridge.

Has anyone got any info that I ought to know on either uni or the area? Being London I presume it will be expensive?

Its just down the road from me...... its not as pricey as being in London but its still quite expensive!!

It is a SUPERB uni tho and my God daughter has a friend there who has mild learning difficulties and he is flourishing!!

Ta for replying.

Sons college have recommeded Brunel Uni as being one of the best Aerospace Egineering Uni's in the UK.

Son has classic traits of Aspergers which is his awsome Mathematical and Science ability!! However, the flip side is his severe lack of social skills, which is why I wanted him to stay up North.

I suppose I'd best book a visit to Uxbridge.

That's the same course Grant is doing!!

And yes it is the best in the country apparently!

And if you visit and want a guide, give me some warning on dates and I'll try and help!
