Institution Profile

Our courses

We have over 160 undergraduate courses that allow our students to learn flexibly in the way that best suits them. We ensure that students have a smooth transition to university study by designing our courses with different learning styles in mind and supporting students throughout. Modules take on a variety of forms and are reviewed regularly to ensure courses are accessible and inclusive.

Graduate with confidence

We know what employers are looking for and we’ve built key skills training into our degree programmes so that you graduate with a stand-out CV. Through practical, work-based learning, and the opportunity to get involved in placements and a year abroad, you’ll graduate ready to kick-start your career. The proof is in the pudding:

  • We’re in the top 30% of universities for graduate earnings – three years after graduating (Longitudinal Education Outcomes 2022)
  • Over 80% of our graduates are in highly skilled roles (all respondents, Graduate Outcomes 2023).

Student life

Student life at Brighton is next to none. Living in an independent and inclusive city with the beach and the countryside on your doorstep, being in Brighton does you good. There’s a real sense of community in Brighton; day or night, there’s always something going on that you can get involved in.

You’ll be able to join numerous clubs and societies hosted by the Students’ Union, or start your own. Across Brighton’s campuses, you’ll have access to state-of-the-art facilities and specialist equipment to help you in your studies, and to help you enjoy your time at university. From libraries to the gym, sports halls, and the SU bar, you’ll have plenty of opportunities and spaces to help you thrive.

Whatever your budget and preferences, we’ll help you to find accommodation that suits you. From halls to private accommodation and home stays, and from catered to self-catered, there are plenty of options.

If you’re thinking of commuting to university, we can help you with that too. In 2024 we launched Brighton Boost, a range of funding and support to get your degree off to the best start. As part of our package, we’re offering eligible students free parking and money towards travel and accommodation costs. Read more about the Brighton Boost and find out if you’re eligible. .

  • Student Support Fund

We host events throughout the year to give students a flavour of what studying at Brighton is like.

Open Days

Open days are a great way for you to find out about your course, the campus where you’ll be based, and to get a feel for the University of Brighton.

What to expect at an open day:
  • Subject talks, taster lectures, interactive sessions and demonstrations with staff and current students.
  • Tours of accommodation, libraries and specialist learning facilities as well as self-guided campus tours.
  • Advice about admissions and entry requirements, accommodation and student funding and finance.
  • Opportunities to find out about the Brighton student experience and our Students’ Union.
Our upcoming events are listed below.

Campus Tours

Campus tours are for you if you are thinking about applying for a degree at Brighton and want to see whether it’s the right university for you. You’ll tour the campus with a student ambassador and have the chance to ask a real student all your questions.

Information for teachers and advisers

Open Days

We have three campuses in Brighton, each with its own open day. Students need to know which subject they’re interested in studying as this will influence the campus they visit and when they attend an open day. Teachers and advisors should encourage students to select the appropriate open day for them and book their place here.

Campus Tours

In addition to our in-person tours, we have virtual tours for students who can’t attend an open day in-person. However, we encourage students to visit us as they’ll get to experience more than just the study spaces and accommodation. They’ll get a taste of what student life in Brighton can offer; from the beach to the countryside of the Sussex downs, to the independent shops in the lanes and to the up-and-coming music and arts scene. Students can sign up here.

Summer Schools

We offer online and in-person residential summer schools to all students.

For our residential summer schools, numbers are limited so, while we encourage all students to apply, we offer priority to students in year 12 who meet our widening participation criteria.

For students who meet our widening participation criteria we are able to arrange and pay for train travel to and from our summer schools.

Our online summer schools are open to students in year 12 and first year of college or sixth form. Our upcoming summer schools are listed below, but for more information, click here.
