We've been helping students find the right postgraduate course for over a decade.
Situated on the southern coast of England, less than 50 miles from London, the vibrant coastal city of Brighton and Hove is home to two large universities and nearly 40,000 students.
Brighton became famous as a seaside resort town during the 18th and 19th centuries, when it was popularly referred to as ‘London by the Sea’. The modern city retains much of this legacy and is still a bustling visitor destination.
Postgraduates in Brighton enjoy one of the UK’s most vibrant cities with a regular calendar of music and entertainment events. Shopping and dining in Brighton is particularly diverse and you’ll have plenty of opportunity to explore the city’s bohemian ‘Lanes’ district, which is famous for its variety of cafes, restaurants and specialist shops.
Other important landmarks and attractions include the Brighton Royal Pavilion (built as a resort for the Prince Regent in the Georgian period) and Brighton Pier, which was constructed in the late Victorian period and is home to various shops and attractions. More recently, the i360 Tower opened in 2016 and is a 163m-tall viewing platform offering panoramic views of the cityscape and seafront.
Brighton’s two universities are the University of Brighton, which also has campuses in neighbouring towns, and the University of Sussex, which has its campus on a large site on the edge of the city. Both received their charters in the 20th century, though the University of Brighton can trace its origins to 1859.
The University of Sussex is one of the top 20 universities in the UK and is part of the Russell Group of leading UK research universities. The University of Brighton is also ranked within the top 100 universities in the UK and is particularly renowned for the quality of its art and design work.
Brighton has a thriving, diverse economy with a particularly strong technology sector – the city is home to many games studios, digital marketing companies and website developers. American Express has a major presence in Brighton, lending its name to the 30,666-capacity stadium where Brighton and Hove Albion FC play their football.
