The University of Brighton has been part of the city of Brighton & Hove since 1859, starting as a school of art in the kitchens of the Royal Pavilion and growing to become the diverse and inclusive institution it is today.
We have more than 21,000 students and 2,800 staff studying and working at our five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. Subjects taught here range from medicine to engineering, psychology to illustration, sport science to English literature.
We believe in making a difference. Our research and enterprise activities tackle global challenges, solve practical problems and seek to improve people’s lives and environments.We recognise that today’s challenges are not limited by the boundaries of traditional disciplines; neither are we. Fresh thinking, interdisciplinary research and collaborative partnerships with industry, institutions and communities enable us to bring expertise from different fields to address society’s most pressing issues to make a tangible impact.
By working closely with business and industry, we make sure that all of our students develop the range of professional and personal skills they need to succeed in their chosen career.
At Brighton we take a career-focused approach to your learning. You will finish your course confident and ready for work, with real, practical and transferable skills as well as theoretical knowledge.
Our courses and the support and opportunities we offer are designed to give you the best possible preparation for life after university. Project work and placements will prepare you for professional life, and career planning provides focus from the start of your course.

The course had the same structure for 10 years, so they have already attempted to make some substantial changes to it. I am just quite curious how does the new course looks like. I also think that the assessments for humanities are a bit more flexible to marking compared with the “pure” sciences and my course mates can agree to some extent with it, as it was observed in...
The course is really great, I received a lot of help from my lecturers. The workshops and lectures helped to develop my work and process of thoughts. The course has enabled me to be as creative as I can be and has also pushed me beyond my limit. My work has been improving consistently due to the creative people that surrounds me.
Excellent FIeld trips, great lecture content, beautiful city to live in
