Just like the city we call home, the University of Brighton is a place where different perspectives meet. A place where opinions, ideas and visions of the world come together, feed off and inspire each other, and create something unique.
We have over 200 courses in a huge range of subjects, which can be tailored to your interests and career aspirations. But whatever you study, we’ll encourage you to stay curious and explore. We'll help you put what you learn into practice while developing your employability skills so you can go on to do the kind of work that you want to do.
We treat everyone who applies as an individual and see the person behind the grades. All of our courses offer placements and work-related learning opportunities. Employability skills are embedded into every course alongside the opportunity to enhance your experience with activities like volunteering or mentoring.
You will learn from staff who combine teaching with professional practice and research. Many of our courses are developed in partnership with employers and the professions, more than 50 professional organisations recognise and accredit our courses.
94.4% of Brighton graduates are working, training or pursuing further study within six months of graduation according to the most recent Destinations of Leavers from Higher Education survey released in July 2017.
You will also have support throughout your course including help with your accommodation, finances, studies, careers advice and your overall wellbeing.
The University of Brighton has been awarded a TEF Silver rating for its teaching, learning and educational outcomes and our Student Services and Information Services hold the Customer Service Excellence standard.
Brighton as a place is second to none. In terms of my course, I was talking to someone recently from another university and they were talking about lecturers that they wouldn't like to go to a restaurant with (with the idea of seeing them as someone they could get on with personally as well as professionally), I however would argue the complete opposite with the lecturers I experienced. I wouldn't have changed anything about the university, course, lecturers or my experience as a whole.

Get to know us
Open days are a great way to find out about the University of Brighton, our courses, and the campus where you will be based. We hold events throughout the year which give you the opportunity to chat to our staff and students.
At our open days we offer subject talks, taster lectures, interactive sessions and demonstrations with staff and current students. We also offer tours of the university accommodation, libraries and specialist learning facilities. It can be a great time to get further advice on entry requirements, accommodation, and student funding and finance.
Get a feel for the place by chatting to our student ambassadors, the Students’ Union and visiting Brighton or Eastbourne whilst you’re here. To find out when our next open day is, check out the open day calendar.
The University of Brighton is based on the south coast of England, with three campuses in Brighton and one in Eastbourne.
Whichever course you study, and at whichever campus, you’ll never be far away from a beach or beautiful countryside.
Brighton is unique. It’s a forward-thinking, vibrant, inclusive city; as welcoming as it is exciting. By the sea, but with a big city feel, there is an amazing variety of things to see, do and experience here. Brighton is home to fantastic independent shops and cafes, great restaurants, galleries, music venues, festivals and nightlife. Even after living here for years, you’ll still be discovering new places to go.
Easy-going Eastbourne is officially the sunniest place in the UK! It is brilliantly accessible, with the beach, the town centre and the beautiful hills of the South Downs all within a 15-minute walk of the campus. There’s so much to do when you’re not studying, from music and arts festivals, to theatres and sports. It is also home to many events including the UK’s biggest extreme sports festival, Beach Life, and international tennis. A student-friendly town you’ll feel at the centre of everything.
Brighton campuses are located in the city centre, and to the north of the city in Moulsecoomb and Falmer - both have great transport links to the city centre. There is a free shuttle bus between the Falmer and Moulsecoomb campuses and Varley Park, and on two routes between Brighton campuses when students show their uni card.
London is less than an hour away by train from Brighton and Gatwick airport is 30 minutes away.
Students based in Eastbourne have everything they need within around 15 minutes' walk - the beach, town centre and countryside. The town is 35 minutes from Brighton by train.
You will have access to equipment and facilities that replicate real industry and professional environments. You'll also have access to excellent library, study, computing, sport facilities, student centres, and restaurants and cafes.
We’re constantly improving our buildings to make our campuses more environmentally sustainable and enjoyable places to live and learn. Over the next three years our Moulsecoomb campus in Brighton will be transformed and improved with new academic buildings and student accommodation.
Depending on your chosen course you could have access to many of our exciting facilities including:
a podiatry hospital
human movement labs
molecular biology facilities
a real-time time trading room
accredited sport and exercise science labs
advanced engineering building
heavy engineering labs
geographical information systems (GIS) remote sensing and image analysis software
arts studios and exhibition spaces
clinical skills facilities
