A part of Brighton since 1859, the university has been guided by its original ethos to become the diverse, multidisciplinary institution that it is today. With 20,700 students studying across five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings, the university community demonstrates civic responsibility across the south coast and beyond. We are defined by a commitment to social relevance, steering our curriculum and research projects away from the ivory tower and toward the fulfilment of public good as a trusted partner. This not only involves active engagement with a local and global community but includes a coordinated effort toward creating an equal and sustainable environment within the university. This is based on the shared values of engagement, diversity, participation, collaboration and sustainability. We are the leading university for the professions, particularly medicine, nursing, engineering and pharmacy. Our courses, from undergraduate to research level and from the humanities to the natural sciences encourage students to apply their academic knowledge to the world beyond university in order to become active, fruitful members of their local communities.
It is a community of 20,700 students and 2700 staff based on five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. The university of Brighton is committed to continual advancement as an institution, providing a teaching and learning environment that aspires and encourages students to excel in their areas of study. The quality of the university’s teaching is demonstrated by our performance in a range of external assessments and by our selection as a Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning.
