WHY CHOOS We know it is so important to choose the right place to study for your degree. We love what we do and we want you to love studying with us, so you can become an award- winning student too. Our campuses are perfectly set-up for studying. We have lots of great facilities and resources for you to use. In Eastbourne we have a sports park with outdoor 3G all-weather pitches and an indoor sports hall with tennis courts. We have eight music studios kitted out with industry standard recording and mixing equipment. We also have workshops and construction areas, fitted with industry standard machinery and tools. In Hastings our multi-million pound campuses are right in the town centre and just metres away from Hastings train and bus station. They are visually stunning and give you access to Learning Resource Centres, 1,000 Macs and PCs, and all the latest industrystandard equipment

In Lewes we have dedicated art studios that allow you to work in your own space and take advantage of our well stocked art supplies.

Our campuses are easy to get to and have great transport links. All our campuses are a short walk from train stations and have regular bus services, so getting to us will never be an issue. Our Hastings and Lewes campuses are right in the middle of the town centres.

Value for money. We offer significantly lower tuition fees than many other institutions in the South East.

You can study a wide range of subjects.

Many of our tutors are fully-qualified with experience in their field. That means they understand how people learn and can personalise your learning experience to help you understand the subject matter in a way that is best for you.

Our class sizes are small enough to make you feel like you belong here. We’ll make you feel a part of something – like a small university family. What’s more, our tutors will always be available to talk to you during and after lectures and give you all the one-to-one time you need.

All of which are perfectly linked to their industry and feed directly into the job market.

Our facilities and resources are more readily available.

We get the thumbs up from the Quality Assurance Agency.

If you need to book the photography studio for a threehour shoot, or you want to record your new music album, then you can. With ease.

During our last QAA review, it showed that we met all expectations and gained a full confidence rating. The University of Brighton Partnership Review also graded us as very good.

Eastbourne is one of the Top 10 happiest towns in the UK

WELCOME TO EASTBOURNE

Eastbourne is a diverse town, sandwiched between the South Downs and the seaside. It’s a town with a thriving events calendar and brilliant location, which creates the perfect blend of business, education, tourism, and leisure.

WELCOM SUNSHIN


Eastbourne is dubbed the Sunshine Coast, a name given because it regularly tops the charts as the UK town with the most sunshine hours in any given year. And given that sunshine equates to Vitamin D – the happy hormone – there is no better place to learn in the UK. And while we can’t guarantee high temperatures and yearround sunshine, Eastbourne has plenty more to offer.

Think of Eastbourne and most people will say it’s like 1950s Brighton, similar in looks to its neighbour with its pier and picture-perfect seafront lined with hotels, but with a less frenetic pace. It’s the reason film director Rowan Joffe chose Eastbourne as the location for his remake of the iconic 1948 film, Brighton Rock, in 2010. For that reason alone, Eastbourne most definitely rocks!

Eastbourne offers a relaxed way of living, with the cities of Brighton and London easily accessible by train and in close proximity.

We understand that the time you spend outside the classroom is also important to you! Student life isn’t just about life in the classroom.

It’s about making new friends, exploring the local area and gaining life skills. 2019 has been somewhat of a revival for the town. The Arndale Centre has been renamed to The Beacon and is the town’s main place to shop. A host of popular high street stores, restaurants, and a new cinema has been added to the offering.

E TO THE NE COAST!

8 - 9


Eastbourne is renowned for its plethora of bars and restaurants. The extensive list includes gastropubs, modern bistros, Victorian tearooms, and good old fashioned country pubs. Here are some of our favourite foody spots:

WELCOME TO EASTBOURNE

Fancy a burger? Burger bars seem to be all the rage right now and when they’re as good as the ones we have in Eastbourne, then they’re probably here to stay. Half Man Half Burger, 7Bone Burger Co., Harleywood Diner, and Old Dave’s Gourmet Burger Co. serve up some mouth-watering creations – everything from beef burgers to vegan burgers. Flamenco Tapas This has to be our favourite Spanish themed restaurant in Eastbourne. They serve over 60 dishes, including a great vegetarian range. The ingredients are sourced from Spain and the restaurant has a typical Spanish feel. There are also 20 Spanish wines to accompany your meal.

Fusciardi’s Ice Cream The seaside and ice cream go hand in hand and Fusciardi’s is one of the most popular ice cream parlours in the town. ‘A taste of Italy in Eastbourne’. The delicious dessert was born right out of The Hungry Monk in the Wealdon district of Eastbourne. (There’s a pub quiz question right there!)

Perfect Place for a pint: The Cornfield Garage The town’s most popular branch of JD Wetherspoon. It has a great choice of local brewers and suppliers and regularly holds cider and gin festivals. The Lamb Inn Thought to be one of the oldest pubs in the country! It sits proudly in the Old Town and has done since about 1180. It serves fine Sussex ales and could well be haunted. Join the ale trail: Bibendum, The Dolphin, The Dewdrop, and The Eagle form a fantastic quartet of pubs. Locals refer to them as the south street shuffle. Quite a popular route for a night out, starting at Bibendum and working your way along South Street until you reach the Eagle.

Fancy Something a little fruitier? Eastbourne Cocktail Club ECC has been a very popular hangout since opening in 2015. Its extensive range of craft beers, gins, and over 100 different cocktails, coupled with its vivid artwork and rock 'n' roll memorabilia, make a winning formula.


Eastbourne attracts more than five million visitors each year and here’s why:

Magnificent Motors Eastbourne’s biggest and best motor show happens each year over the first May bank holiday weekend. The motoring spectacular features more than 900 vintage and classic cars, motorbikes, buses, and is a weekend packed with live music and entertainment. Eastbourne Theatres Musical performances, live shows, and standup comedy are also very good in Eastbourne. The Congress Theatre reopened in March 2019 after an extensive refurbishment as part of the £54 million Devonshire Park Project. The London Philharmonic Orchestra performed as the venues premiere concert. Touring comics such as Michael McIntyre and Alan Carr often test out their new material in Eastbourne, and West End shows often roll into town throughout the year.

Nature Valley International Tennis Tournament Each June, some of the world’s best tennis players visit the Sunshine Coast for the Nature Valley International. Some of the biggest names in women’s and men’s tennis have graced the Devonshire Park Lawn Tennis courts including Caroline Wozniacki, Angelique Kerber, Stan Wawrinka, Andy Murray, and Eastbourne’s Johanna Konta.

Beach Life Festival If you’re looking for something a little more extreme then look no further. Beach Life is one of the biggest FREE extreme sports festivals in the UK! Taking place mid-july, the event attracts skaters, BMXers, windsurfers, and SUP enthusiasts to the coast.

Airbourne Perhaps Eastbourne’s biggest and most popular event of the year. In mid-August huge crowds line the seafront to watch the two mile flying display. The four-day event features the very best in military and civilian aviation display teams and regularly includes the RAF Typhoon, Chinook, The Blades, Wingwalkers and the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight. Beer & Cider by the Sea The end of May bank holiday beer festival well and truly kicks off the summer. It features over 100 real ales, ciders, and perries, and has great entertainment from live bands on the festival stage throughout the weekend.

WELCOME TO HASTINGS

WELCOME TO THE CREATIVE HOTSPOT


The historic and picturesque town of Hastings is a mix of Victorian elegance and modern transformation, with vibrant and thriving business, tourism, leisure and education sectors.

In August 2016, Hastings was named as a hotspot for thriving creative industries. It was identified among 47 creative clusters across the UK that showed that Hastings was starting to have a significant impact on the industry.

Hastings is sometimes referred to as Brighton’s little sister, and shares a lot of the same quirky, artistic qualities as its neighbour. But Hastings is beginning to move out of the shadows and make a real name for itself. ... And we much prefer the more recent reference of Shoreditch-on-Sea, because Hastings shares many of the same characteristics that the swanky London suburb is synonymous with. Many of the national news outlets have also been backing Hastings as a very attractive place to live, work, study and play (and of course, we agree!). The Guardian says that the town is undergoing an artistic renaissance and creative talents and businesses are flourishing alongside other likeminded people and the fun spirit of the town. Many high profile creative people are starting to make the move from Brighton and London.

The London Evening Standard called Hastings the “new jewel in the South East Coast” encouraging readers to visit the ancient Old Town ‘twittens’, which are lined with interesting and quirky boutique shops

Hastings’ identity and reputation as a thriving national and international arts centre is gathering momentum.

12 - 13


Trip Advisor can give you an idea of the best places to eat and drink, but nobody really knows Hastings like we do. Here are some of our favourites: The Crown is a very popular pub and highly recommended for its range of craft beers.

Cafe Maroc is a BYOB Moroccan restaurant serving traditional Moroccan feasts.

To the east, you’ll find a glorious stretch of beach, with Europe’s largest beach-launched fishing fleet, the iconic black fishing huts, with views of the East Hill in the background. The Jerwood Gallery has very much made itself at home in this part of town since opening in 2011 and offers a ‘uniquely British experience’.

The Dragon Bar is a swanky London cocktail bar, where its resident DJ plays tracks straight from vinyl on his mini decks.

Ye Olde Pump House is in the heart of the old town and has a stunning interior full of character and is a great place to grab a drink or eat. You’ll find some of the best fish and chips at The Cod Father, The Old Town Fryer and the Kingfisher.

Heading west, you’ll find the famous Hastings Pier. After being burnt down in 2010, the pier re-opened six years later. It acknowledges the history and charm of the old one by using some of the old planks in the restoration. It now offers a clean, modern, spacious area for people to explore. Since re-opening, the pier has been a hive of activity with open-air yoga, cinema screenings, a circus and live music.

The Printworks has two bars and is a great place to try something different from small breweries, vineyards and craft beers. This is a great night out.

The pier was once a popular venue for live music. The Rolling Stones, The Sex Pistols, The Who and Jimi Hendrix all played here in their heyday. It looks as if the pier will once again become a hot spot for live performances after Dizzee Rascal, Madness, the Levellers, and DJ sensations MK and Hannah Wants all played sold out sets.

Porter’s Wine Bar is situated in a Grade 2 listed building and regularly has performances from award-winning jazz singer, Liane Carroll. The Boulevard Bookshop is a bookshop by day and Thai restaurant by night, offering a fine range of home-cooked Thai dishes.

WELCOME TO HASTINGS

The town has three cinemas, a large shopping centre, Old Town, park, arcades and amusements, a Go-Kart track and the UK’s largest adventure golf complex.

Walkers wine bar and bistro is a great place for lunch, as well as dancing the night away.

Did you know? Hastings is full to the brim with over 80 amazing bars, pubs & restaurants.

Throughout the year, it’s hard not to get carried away with all the parties and festivals going on in the town. The Seafood and Wine Festival, Jack in the Green, Pirates Day, and its very own version of Mardi Gras - Fat Tuesday are some of the best!

HASTINGS IS A GREAT STUDENT TOWN, OFFERING VALUE FOR MONEY, NOT ONLY IN THE EVENING, BUT DURING THE DAY TOO! 14 - 15


WELCOME TO LEWES

The Sussex town of Lewes is steeped in history. It is a picturesque and quintessential English town with the white chalk cliffs of the South Downs as the perfect backdrop.

The River Ouse, which runs directly through the town, and the 1,000-year-old Lewes Castle are two dominating features of Lewes. As you venture into the town centre you are welcomed by narrow alleyways, crooked buildings, and a plethora of shops, cafes, and restaurants. From mainstream brands to independent names, Lewes is a truly artisan town with an old fashioned charm. The Barbican House is home to the Museum of Sussex Archaeology and houses local

collections from the Stone Age to medieval times. Anne of Cleves was a resident of Lewes and her former house gives an insight into how Tudors and Elizabethans lived, worked, and relaxed at home. Political activist, philosopher, and Founding Father of the United States, Thomas Paine, was also a former resident, having lived above the 15th century Bull House, which was a tobacco shop at the time. Harvey’s Brewery moved into the town in 1790 and

SOMETH HISTORI DIFFERE


History tells us that Lewes has always been independent and liked to do things a little differently. Its wide range

of independent and boutique shops, salons, cafés, bars, and restaurants is the modern day example of that. But that’s what makes Lewes so great! Fashion boutique Twinkle Twinkle offers luxurious modern classics for style lovers not slaves to fast fashion. The Needlemakers, a former needle and candle factory, houses lots of craft shops, perfect for finding unique accessories and homeware. The café also serves delicious cake.

HING ICALLY ENT

Lewes is a truly artisan town with an old fashioned charm.

have lived here ever since. Just as John Harvey did, his descendants use a blend of four local hops, water filtered through the South Downs for over 30 years, and a unique 60-year-old yeast strain, to create Harvey’s beers. On some days the Harvey’s Brewery horse drawn cart still frequents the cobbled roads of the town!

16 - 17


While we’re on the subject of food, Lewes has lots of fantastic places to eat. There are well established restaurants such as Bill’s, which began as a greengrocers in the town, and the newer, vibrant Fuego Lounge, but we also love some of the smaller, lesser known places: Erawan If you’re a fan of Thai then you’ll love Erawan. It’s an intimate Thai diner that serves up authentic, spicy dishes that are great value. It’s just a couple of minutes from campus, it’s Bring Your Own, and the Penang curry is delicious.

Caccia & Tails An amazing pasta and focaccia bar offering homemade pasta, sauces, and breads. The Focaccia is Genovese, a regional style of Focaccia which is best eaten upside down to allow the salt to hit your tongue. The mac’n’cheese fries with Marmite mayo are a must.

The Bus Club Pizza House

WELCOME TO LEWES

We love pizza. Even if we didn’t, I’m sure that the wood-fired pizzas served here would convert us in no time! They offer lots of great toppings and even do gluten free and vegan pizzas.

The Swan Inn If you’re looking for something a little more traditional, then look no further than the Swan’s Sunday roast. Big plates with all the trimmings and a great veggie roast available as well.

Having its own brewery, you’d expect there to be quite a few places you could sample the county’s finest ales – you’re not wrong: The Lewes Arms An architectural gem steeped in character and tradition. Locals say that this is the best pub in Lewes, and we find it hard to disagree. This historic pub, which is over 200-years-old, serves up delicious food, well-kept ales, and great entertainment.

Pelham Arms This is quite a unique pub with its own smokehouse! The Pelham Arms has been curing meats for a number of years and in 2016 built their own smokehouse on-site and now serve a whole range of smoked treats. They also offer delicious burgers with hand-ground meats and housemade sauces.

John Harvey Tavern A rustic pub in the heart of the town that sits opposite Harvey’s Brewery and next to the River Ouse. Wine Wednesdays and Burger Thursdays are our favourite times to visit.

Harvey’s Brewery There aren’t many towns in the south east where you can tour a brewery and taste the unique and distinct flavours of the county’s finest ales. “We wunt be druv” a Sussex dialect phrase that means “we will not be driven” and has been used in the county for hundreds of years and denotes the independence, spirit, and pride of the brewers.


It's not all ale and beer though: Café Du Jardin By day - a lovely French café / bistro serving rustic French food. But on a Friday and Saturday night, the Wine Cellar is one of our favourite places to hang out. Lots of great cocktails, an extensive wine list, and entertainment on most nights. A quirky and cosy setting; and relatively still unknown – until now!

The Depot The Depot is a bit of an all-rounder. Great for food, a fantastic selection of beers, wines, and spirits, a brilliant place to meet with friends, and it’s a cinema!

And if that wasn’t enough, Lewes knows how to throw a good party. There are lots of events happening throughout the year that you can experience: Love Supreme Festival A three-day jazz festival held during the first weekend in July. Set in the stunning surroundings of Glynde Place, the festival has been running since 2013.

Glyndebourne Festival Opera At the opposite end of the celebrations spectrum is the Glyndebourne Festival Opera. Glyndebourne house is a 1,200 seater venue and has held the festival since 1934, attracting people from all over the world.

Lewes Bonfire Bonfire night in Lewes is huge! The celebrations not only mark the foiled gunpowder plot of 1605 but also commemorates the memory of the 17 Protestant martyrs burnt at the stake for their faith.

BA (HONS) DESIGNER MAKER

ESTELLE BURTON

My three years have been amazing! During my second year I won the Student Open Category and the overall Best in Show at the international design competition, Pewter Live. To have been recognised at

this level as a student is a real honour. My sculptural vessels demonstrated an evolution of a functional form and were the result of six months design and testing to combine pewter and glass. Persistence


finally paid off and allowed me to develop a technique which has never been achieved before. My third year has been filled with work experience for a Silversmith in Ashford and preparing for my final

project. I’m so excited to have been offered a place at the prestigious Royal College of Art next year, to study a Master’s in Jewellery and Metal I can’t wait to start!

studio time! The equipment here certainly helps to take you to the next level. The mixing desks and microphones are top of the range and are what we would be working with in the industry. That just goes to show the level

of equipment we have here. The great thing about the course is that there are no barriers. People are up for expressing themselves and they’re just up for music and that’s great!

Being able to study alongside my current role has worked really well. Lectures fit nicely around my work hours as a youth worker. I’m currently going into secondary schools in Hastings to raise awareness about knife crime. There is a lot I can take from my studies to help get the message across, such as theories of learning, psychology, and how to talk to people. Likewise, the experience I’m gaining at work really helps with my uni assignments. My tutor is brilliant. She has so much teaching and industry experience, I feel like she knows everything. She takes the time to get to know you and how you behave and how you learn. If I even need anything explaining she will be able to find the best way to help. She understands and tailors her teaching to each of us and I think that is brilliant, especially at degree level.
