The University of Brighton is a thriving academic community of about 21,000 students and is a genuinely international university. In the year 2009-10 we had approximately 1,100 international students from over 90 countries worldwide and 1,300 European Union students studying at our campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. Many of our staff come from overseas or have taught abroad and a number of our courses have a strong international theme incorporating case studies, work placements and opportunities to study abroad. This rich mixture of nationalities and cultural backgrounds, along with our international outlook, gives the university a truly cosmopolitan feel.
The university’s distinctive strengths lie in providing high quality teaching and research with a strong vocational, professional and applied focus. Brighton’s Teaching Quality Assessment and OFSTED inspection record is one of the strongest of any UK university with many areas judged as Excellent. Courses are developed in discussion with employers to ensure their relevance to industry, commerce and the public sector, and all aim to offer a strong professional and applied focus. The university’s research is of international quality with many of the researchers recognised as international experts in their fields.
We offer many professionally and vocationally oriented courses, focusing on transferable skills to prepare you for employment. Work placements form a part of many of our courses.
We have one of the best graduate employment records in the UK. 94 per cent of our students are in employment or further studies six months after graduation. We are proud of the high quality of our teaching and research as evidenced by the Quality Assurance Agency teaching assessment results and Research Assessment Exercise ratings.
The university offers Extended Masters programmes which combine English language and academic elements as well as a range of English language courses if you need to improve your English before you start your course. Free English language support classes are also offered throughout your chosen course of study. The university also offers a generous range of international student scholarships.
