Founded

1992

Description

The University of Brighton can trace its origins back to 1859 when the new School of Art opened in the coastal town, with just 110 pupils.

After becoming Brighton Polytechnic and, in the late 1970s, merging with the East Sussex College of Higher Education, the institution gained university status in 1992. It focuses on professional education.

In 2006, the University of Brighton teamed up with engineering company Ricardo UK to open the Sir Harry RIcardo Laboratories, which carries out extensive research into  - among other things - internal combustion engines and laser-based measurement techniques.

Five years later, in 2011, the university founded the University of Brighton Doctoral College, which oversees postgraduate research. It now has a community of more than 500 postgraduate research students.

In the same year, the institution’s International College welcomed its first students. The college provides programmes that prepare international students for undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

The university now has more than 20,000 students across its five campuses, which are located not only in Brighton, where there are three, but also in Eastbourne and Hastings.

The three Brighton bases are known as Grand Parade, Moulsecoomb and Falmer.

Grand Parade, located in the city centre, houses the arts and humannities students; Moulsecoomb is the largest campus by student population, and houses many departments including maths, life sciences and geography; and the Falmer campus, located four miles from the city, plays host to trainee nurses, teachers, social scientists and linguists.

Alumni of the University of Brighton include DJ Norman Cook, also known as Fatboy Slim; comic actor Chris Barrie; children’s author Sue Hendra; and artist Jesse Waugh.

Being someone of the BAME category, Brighton uni has been incredibly welcoming and open to diversity in both the ideas I bring to the studio and extra-curricular. I just wish Brighton as a city was more culturally aware and diverse to be able to understand those of an ethnic minority a bit better.

Brighton university emphasises on making sure students have skills that can they transfer into the working environment. Their pharmacy programme was hands on and prepared students for a successful career in Pharmacy. The best thing about Brighton university is the town itself. The are plenty of shops interesting and trendy shops and restaurants that cater to a range of diets. The downside about the uni is the fact that there isn't a guarantee of a place in halls so some students miss out on this opportunity.

Firstly I have to say that I really enjoyed my university experience. Brighton is a brilliant place, loads to do, very lively, great people, huge choice of nightlife and it's by the sea which is particularly great in the summertime. I met many good friends at University and enjoyed the majority of my 3 years there. However, with all that being said, the teaching, academic support and general facilities, in my opinion, were poor. The teaching was normally just a lecturer reading from slides (very little discussion/participation/insight). As for the support, it seemed difficult to arrange to meetings with lecturers (this is probably because they are overworked/had too many other classes to look after). As for the facilities, the library was under-stocked with the essential course material so the students have to go out to purchase course material for themselves, there was not enough available space for students to carry out the personal study at the actual University, especially with access to a computer/internet!!!! (I was primarily based at the Falmer Campus), there was virtually no Student Union that I knew of, no Student Union bar and perhaps most importantly there were far too few halls so I had to move into a rented house in the area in my first year, with third-year students despite being a fresher. Moreover, once the course was completed I felt the University had no interest and certainly supplied no assistance in the next step of using the degree (I had just paid for and completed) to help me start looking into my next step/career. So in conclusion, I enjoyed my University experience because of the place and the people and not the actual University of Brighton course I completed. Despite this I still managed to get out of it what I wanted (a 2:1 BsC Honours Degree) and have used it to further my career whilst still enjoying the experience, so I would recommend the University experience for sure but possibly not at the University of Brighton Please note: I studied BSc Geography, graduating in 2012 so I can only speak from my personal experience on this course at this time

I graduated from the university of Brighton in 2005, where I took on a BA Hons in English studies with linguistics and French as a minor. First of all, I must say that the overall experience was very positive, both in terms of what I gained academically, as well as the social skills I gained from studying alongside students from many different parts of the Globe. Besides I also benefitted from the new state of the art facilities that were under construction, such as the new library, which if I am not mistaken were finished throughout the course of my first year. This was provided very conveniently with state of the art equipment. With regard to the quality of the teaching of my professors and the quality of the research carried out by the school of languages, these were ranked with four and five points respectively out of five possible points that was the maximum score in order to measure these two sections of the school of languages.__On the other hand, there were some downsides at Falmer's campus, such as the limited capacity of the halls of residence for the 1st year students. Thus, in my 1st year, I could not get a room there, even though I was a fresher and from overseas. As I said earlier I benefitted enormously from the teaching of my professors, whose lectures I found very interesting and enriching, and whom I found very supportive during my studies and even after I had concluded my studies. I would also like to dedicate a few words of gratitude to all the staff at the school of languages as well as to all my fellow colleagues. __
