About

We offer semester and yearlong program, with the opportunity to take classes from a variety of subjects.

Our team, Mary, Zoe and Becca, are on hand to help make your study abroad experience be the best of your lifetime. As well as onsite orientation and class enrollment, we arrange and attend field trips with you to London, Oxford & Stratford, Bath & Stonehenge and Paris, as well as a couple of local trips.

Brighton is a great hub to travel, with Gatwick Airport only 30 minutes by train and London just 50 minutes by train.

Nicknamed, London-by-the-sea, when you're not studying or travelling around Europe, there is so much to do in Brighton itself. Famous for it's cosmopolitan Laines, with independent shops and cafes spilling out onto the streets; music, art and food festivals; nightlife and more.

Optional Field Trips

As part of our programming, we're proud to offer our students optional field trips at a very affordable price. Sit back, let us do the planning and let's explore the UK!

  • London: a fully escorted day through England’s exciting capital city. See all the major sights with plenty of free time, too
  • East Sussex: day tour by mini-bus of the countryside and places of scenic and historical interest in the area east of Brighton
  • Paris: a long weekend across the pond!? Yes please! We'll be taking the euro-tunnel to Calais and staying within walking distance to the Eiffel Tower
  • Bodiam Castle and Rye: a day trip by mini-bus through parts of Sussex and Kent -- a classic medieval castle in a picturesque setting (surrounded by a moat!)
  • Oxford and Stratford-Upon-Avon: a lovely weekend trip exploring historic cities and castles
  • Bath & Stonehenge: a weekend trip to Bath, a world Heritage city, famous for its Georgian architecture and Roman Baths and to Stonehenge, the world famous ancient stone circle

Study in Brighton with no regrets!

Brighton is such an amazing city and a great place to study abroad. The University of Brighton has three campuses throughout the city, so you're able to see the city and interact with UK students everyday.There are free shuttle buses that take you from campus to campus, as well as several other city buses that run frequently that take you downtown. The program advisors, Mary and Becca are such wonderful people. They are always willing to help and are so easy going.

Since there are a lot of other university students in the area, the night life really caters towards us. There are always student deals (on top of already reasonable prices). The buses run till 4am so there's always a way to get home. the Brighton Pier, the seafront and the lanes are great places to spend the afternoon or weekend at. There are tons of places to shop, eat and have fun.

You wont regret studying at Uni Brighton

What would you improve about this program?
I would offer a option to live in different parts of Brighton. While the on campus dorms are convenient for classes, I would have preferred to live closer to downtown.

Explore.

I got the wonderful opportunity to go to the University of Brighton twice in my college career. Both times were pure joy and bliss. I had a wonderful support system through the staff and friends I met while there. I've always encouraged people to travel and take adventures and Brighton is an amazing place to start. You see so much love and happiness through from the campus to the Brighton Pier; and everywhere in between. The first time I was there I lived in the dorms at Falmer Campus, which were perfect! My entire time there, I had no complaints. It was nice that all your friends and soon to be family were all in once place together! The second time I went to study at the University, I was in a host family. That was a true English experience. You understood the culture, ways of living and the food on a whole different level. Nothing I would take back about it! The staff is wonderful and helpful. The tours they take you on are fantastic and become strong memories in your life! If you get the chance to travel, never turn it down. It can change your way of thought, living and breathing. It can change you! All for the better! Take adventures. Take risks. Take a friend, or gone on your own. University of Brighton opened up my eyes to the beautiful idea of constant exploring and it still runs through me today. Go.Travel. Explore.
