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.
