The University of Brighton made me confident and able to take risks. I gained the ability to push myself on a creative and personal level.

It’s a forward-thinking city, leading the way in arts, creative technology and the environment, offering unique opportunities to apply and extend your learning. 01.

Easy-going Eastbourne Eastbourne is officially the sunniest place in the UK! Maybe that’s why it’s so friendly, welcoming and relaxed.

Eastbourne is also brilliantly accessible, with the beach, the town centre and the beautiful hills of the South Downs all within a 15-minute walk of our campus. There’s so much to do when you’re not studying, including music and arts festivals, shopping, theatres, galleries and sports.

Yan Ting Huang, International Tourism Management student

02 02. It’s a hotly-contested title, but according to Met Office data, Eastbourne averaged an 7.5 hours of sunshine in every day in May 2017, beating its nearest rival Newquay by over half an hour. Recently renovated Eastbourne pier is a slice of history – it dates back to 1872. It’s 300 metres long and built on stilts, which rest in cups on the seabed allowing the whole structure to move during rough weather.

Living in Eastbourne has been fun – it holds wonderful memories of the beautiful countryside and friendly people.

Eastbourne has a close-knit university community and students have their own cosy on-campus pub, the Starting Gate. 04. Away from the high street, there are independent shops and cafes to explore.

Every June, some of the world’s best tennis players come to Eastbourne for The Nature Valley International: a top class tournament and a vital part of preparations for Wimbledon. Our students often work at the tournament. For culture lovers the Towner Art Gallery has an excellent collection of contemporary art; and Eastbourne has four theatres, as well as hosting a vibrant programme of arts and music events throughout the year.

Sport and fitness

Deepika Alexander, Pharmacy student

Being part of the badminton team has given me a great opportunity to further my skills and play weekly competitive games – and I’ve made a lot of friends.

Whatever your goals and level of ability – competing, keeping fit or just having fun – we’ll help you to enjoy sports. Students can use all our sport and fitness facilities, wherever you study or live. If you have to travel between campuses to play for a university club we’ll help with transport.

We also support elite and elite disabled student athletes at national and Olympic level through sports scholarships, the sports science consultancy and our status as a satellite centre for the English Institute of Sport.

Give your time, gain experience

Our close links with community groups and our established student volunteering programmes mean we can help you get involved with the things that matter most to you. And you’ll gain valuable experience at the same time.

The union is run for students, by students, and is a member of the National Union of Students, representing over five million students in the UK. The union council of elected student officers is the formal link between students and the university. Why not put yourself forward and add your perspective to student politics?

Student social

The Students’ Union also hosts events, from cinema and club nights to black-tie balls, and helps societies to hold cultural and religious events for festivals like Eid, Diwali, Hanukkah, Chinese New Year and Christmas. If you feel inspired you can create your own society. It could be cultural, political, religious or course-related, but really it’s up to you. Get it ratified by the union for access to office facilities, free advice and the chance to bid for financial support.

Joe Mudge, PE with QTS student

01. Our Parklife Colour Run happens in the final term of the year. Students and staff are drenched with colour as they walk, jog or run around campus in a 5km or 10km route.

I have grown in confidence since coming here, it’s part of the ethos of the university. We’re an incredibly social and friendly university.

02. Our teams compete against other universities in the British Universities and Colleges Sport league. 03. The popular Food Coop project is led by students, who source cost-effective, seasonal local food which can be ordered weekly and picked up on campus.

Our professional accommodation service

Where you’ll live your accommodation options

We understand how important it is for new international students to find the right home for them, and our accommodation team is here to help. They have excellent local knowledge and can advise you on all your options - whether you choose a place in halls of residence, or rent a flat or house. We’ll be in touch after you’ve applied to guide you through the process. 34

There are several housing options available to you, and we’ll help you find a safe and suitable home. • Our accommodation offices are located on Moulsecoomb campus in Brighton and Trevin Towers in Eastbourne. • You can use our service throughout your student career, not just your first year. • Our database of registered landlords lists affordable and safe accommodation in the private sector. All landlords sign up to a code of standards. To search our database visit http:// studenthomes.brighton.ac.uk. • In the summer, we manage a Facebook group designed to help you find a home and housemates before you start university.

Other accommodation options Private sector renting

Halls of residence

Halls of residence are universitymanaged buildings where students live together. If you choose to live in halls you’ll usually have your own bedroom and share living spaces. We have halls of residence on several sites across Brighton and in Eastbourne. There is a variety of prices, catering options and room type available. Budgeting You may need to budget for travel, a TV licence and food as well as rent.

Houses managed by the university

Unihomes and unilets are properties that the university lets to our students on behalf of private landlords and letting agents. With this option the university is your landlord and you deal direct with us whilst enjoying the benefits of living in a shared house. Budgeting Unihome and unilet rents include electricity, water and gas.

This is a good option if you want more freedom and independence, and you can choose to be closer to the city. Join our Housemates Facebook group to meet other students and use our Studenthomes database to help find a place to live. Budgeting You’ll need to budget for bills, contents insurance, travel, food and a TV licence as well as your rent.

When to look

It’s advisable to look for private rented accommodation during the summer before you start your course. You may be able to book onto our orientation programme which takes place the week before the start of term – you can use this as a base for your search. If you choose to live in private rented accommodation you’ll need a UK-based guarantor or be able to pay 3–12 month’s rent in advance.

House-hunting

The Accommodation Service is open during the summer and we manage a Facebook group which you can use to find housemates and access housing advice before you start university. You can meet other students who are looking to share and ask our accommodation team any questions.

Homestay

Homestay gives you the extra security of living with a family, couple or single person endorsed by the university. Homestay is popular with international students and ideal for short stays of a few weeks or longer. Homestay is only available to students in the Brighton area. Rooms can be provided on a self-catered or catered basis, where you can have your meals cooked for you. We also have shared rooms if you know another student you would like to share with. Budgeting Depending on whether you choose the catered or self-catered option, you may need to budget for food and travel as well as rent.

How to apply

If you are interested in homestay, once you have accepted your place on a course, contact us by email or phone, and we’ll send you an application form.

36

Private sector renting

There’s lots of choice for students wanting to rent privately in Brighton.

Unihomes and unilets

We have around 130 places in university-managed unihomes and unilets. They vary in size but usually have four to five bedrooms with shared bathroom facilities, kitchen and communal areas. They’re great if you prefer to live in the wider community, close to local amenities and facilities. Rooms are let on individual contracts which run from September to August. Costs • Rent in Brighton starts from £135 per week. • This is £6,480 per year based on 48 weeks. • Includes: gas, electricity, water, internet and £5,000 of contents insurance for your personal belongings.

Olly Hunt-Blow, graduate

Estimated costs • The average rent for a onebedroom flat is £200 per week. • A room in a shared house is usually £120–£125 per person per week. • A damage deposit equivalent to four to six weeks rent and at least one month’s rent in advance is usually required – £960–£1,250. • You will also need to pay agency fees. • Rent does not usually include bills, so you would be responsible for paying for your own broadband, electricity, gas and water. If you choose private rented accommodation you’ll need a UKbased guarantor or be able to pay 3–12 month rent in advance.

I decided that I would like to rent in the city centre while I did my degree. I contacted the accommodation team for some advice and got some good tips for renting as a student. The bus route to Falmer is great, so I always found it easy getting to and from lectures, and as my course had placements I wanted to make sure I could get around easily. Renting as a student can seem daunting, but there’s loads of help on hand from the university and I wouldn’t have done it any other way.

Our architecture, interiors and product design courses are design-led, hands-on and collaborative. Students develop their own voice and the skills needed to take an idea to finished project through working together on live briefs and projects.

ARCHITECTURE AND DESIGN Themed, vertical studios encourage enquiry and collaboration and prepare architecture and interior architecture students for the realities of professional practice. Themes range from model making to memory and meaningful architecture, and you’ll choose the subject that interests you most or matches your career aspirations in years 2 and 3. Architecture and interior architecture studios are shared spaces, encouraging the free flow of ideas, and simulating practice and the workplace. Modelling and construction workshops, IT facilities and specialist software help students to build the skills and experience required in practice. Product design students work in a professional design studio with specialist facilities, 3D print workspaces, wood, metal and welding workshops, finish room and prototyping laboratories.

Our students benefit from expert perspectives, thanks to our programme of talks from visiting architects, designers and researchers, who share their experiences and enthusiasm. Field trips and site visits inspire, motivate and bring the subjects to life. Our product design courses include a placement year. Experience gained on placement is invaluable in helping you become a professional designer, and many students find that the work informs their final year project. Our architecture and product design courses carry accreditation. On our architecture courses you can tailor your degree through our studio group structure and module choices. In product design you can choose to specialise and have this reflected in the degree title you leave with.

Holly Mapes, Product Design with Professional Experience graduate and now PhD student at the university

My course highlights were the end of year exhibition and the placement. It’s really motivating to see all your hard work come together in one place and I had a great time working as a Packaging Technologist Intern at The Body Shop head office.

01 01. Made up of students from across our engineering disciplines, team Brighton Racing Motors project managed, designed and built Apex, a prototype Formula 1 racing car. Apex was our first entry for Formula Student, the European educational engineering competition from the Institution of Mechanical Engineers (IMechE). Our team qualified and got to race the car at Silverstone.

Prianka Sabharwal, Aeronautical Engineering student and Formula Student team leader

Being a part of a team and learning how to work well in a team is something I’ll take away from my experience. It’s the first time I have been a part of a project that’s spanned a year, being involved in the start-up, design, manufacturing and end result – it’s rewarding and definitely given me a work ethic that I’ll carry with me.

Geography and geology degrees at Brighton are practical, hands on and innovative. Exciting fieldwork opportunities and specialist facilities and equipment help our graduates to become environmentally and socially responsible citizens, equipped to make an impact in their field of expertise.

GEOGRAPHY AND GEOLOGY

Nick McGlynn, Geography BA(Hons) lecturer

I try to bring energy and enthusiasm to my lectures, using plenty of visual and audio material. I like to set a couple of important but accessible key readings. Usually these are academic readings, but sometimes writing or a video from activists, community groups or the media is a good way to get stuck into a topic.

Field trips are a fundamental part of the Brighton learning experience; students are able to develop practical skills and apply their learning in real-life scenarios. Our location on the south coast and close to the South Downs National Park offers rich resource for field trips and research. Residential fieldwork in the UK includes locations in Wales and Yorkshire, while further afield trips have included Morocco, Greece, Sicily, Spain, Cyprus and France.

Research informs our teaching, helping our students to think and act like a professional as part of their studies. Second year geography student, Ellie Crabbe, is involved in a research project looking at log jams on the Nooksack River in the USA. She travelled with lecturer Dr Annie Ockelford to the North Cascades National Park in Washington to take part in the work. They will be returning to gather more data and Ellie is involved in writing papers for the project.

Our courses are accredited by professional organisations including the Chartered Institute of Water and Environmental Management (CIWEM), Royal Institute of Chartered Surveyors, Royal Geographical Society (with IBG), the Geological Society of London and the Institution of Environmental Sciences.

With a choice of accredited courses and the option of a professional placement year, our students develop their knowledge, skills and experience, gaining a competitive advantage when they graduate.

Our integrated masters courses develop students’ skills and experience as researchers. Through advanced, masters-level study students will deepen their understanding of key concepts and how to apply them to real-world issues.

HEALTH The values of the NHS constitution are at the heart of our health courses: respect, dignity, compassion and patient-focused care, together with the recognition that patients come first at all times. Placements are an integral part of the learning experience for all our health students. As well as providing opportunities to use new skills with patients, placements build relationships and experience of working closely with fellow health professionals. Students benefit from our partnerships with local NHS trusts and private and voluntary organisations. Students on our Public Health course are supported in developing the portfolio required for registration as a practitioner with the UK Public Health Register.

06. Public Health students have work placements with public health service providers in years 2 and 3. A great opportunity to put theory into practice, learn from public health practitioners in the field, and to build contacts for the future.

HOSPITALITY, EVENTS AND TOURISM 05

Michela Spampanato, International Tourism Management student

I enjoyed the annual trip to the World Travel Market which allowed me to connect and exchange ideas with industry experts. With support from staff, I was also able to explore one of my greatest interests when I conducted research on the Pompeii World Heritage Site in Italy for my dissertation – this will be an experience I will always treasure.

Work placements enable students to build invaluable experience, and to test their new skills and knowledge in the workplace. Placements are optional and can be short (two weeks), or a year long and taken after year 2 of your course.

01. Humanities students are based at our Pavilion Parade building, enjoying a close and friendly community.

02. History of Art and Design graduate Wendy Fraser won the ÂŁ500 Khadija Saye Visual Culture Breakthrough Award 2016/17.

Freddie Harris, Humanities: War, Conflict, Modernity graduate

82

What inspires me is when I read a text, maybe written more than 100 years ago, and it still resonates with the world today... I find it fascinating that philosophy scholars can paint such vivid pictures of the future by looking at ideas and where they might lead.

02


Humanities students at Brighton are inquisitive and insightful, ready to critically examine the world through our multi-disciplinary approach. Our programmes in history of art and design and humanities offer courses that enable you to critically examine the world we have made for ourselves through the study of design and visual culture, literature, history, philosophy and politics.

HUMANITIES HISTORY, PHILOSOPHY, CULTURE AND POLITICS Our approach to the humanities is distinctive and interdisciplinary, meaning that students explore several subjects in context with one another, developing historical, analytical and interpretive skills.

Eugene Michail, course leader, Critical History BA(Hons)

Our students are keen to see the connections between what they study and today’s world. We live in a time of multiple crises. History and the humanities can help us make sense of what is happening and how we can react. This is a core principle of our teaching and our research. I am currently using my skills as a historian to analyse social reactions to the recent financial and refugee ‘crises’ in Europe.

Learning in small seminar groups is at the heart of the humanities learning experience at Brighton and helps students find their own voice. Seminars are student-led and courses within the humanities programme focus on issues central to modernity, such as global conflict, sexuality, class and fundamentalism. History of Art and Design students consider topics including modernism and postmodernism, and culture and commerce, exploring the history of art and design around the world. Students learn to present arguments and voice intellectual concerns, becoming accomplished presenters, debaters and listeners and develop skills in teamwork and critical thinking. History of Art and Design includes a placement option, providing experience and insight into museum, gallery and archival work.

Seminar performance is assessed, you will also attend regular lectures and have one-to-one tutorials. In your final year you will complete a research project on a topic of your choosing, supported with one-to one supervision. Our humanities programme degrees share an ethos and structure, but each offers an individual critical approach. A shared first year sees you studying core modules that develop the skills central to our courses. Then in year 2 you start to shape your course to your interests through a themed pathway choice, following this pathway for the rest of your degree and enabling a deep, critical engagement with the subject. The University of Brighton holds one of the UK’s leading library collections in the field of history of art and design and a rapidly growing collection of online books and articles for humanities study. Based at our site in central Brighton, students benefit from access to the internationally significant Design Archives, which includes the Design Council Archive, Screen Archives South East and The Dress and Textile Teaching collection.

03. Our humanities courses are taught in small groups where every student can be heard.

Dr Annebella Pollen, Academic Programme Leader, History of Art and Design

Teaching students as an active researcher, writer and curator means letting students into the tricks of my trade. I love taking students to archives and museum collections of raw material and showing them how to cook these elements into finished pieces of writing or visual displays. Handling artefacts in the classroom has always been important to me; it is valuable to know how different materials feel, whether the focus is on fabrics or photographic formats.

04. An Nguyen Ngoc, History of Art and Design student. An worked on placement for the Brighton film festival CINECITY, at the installation of its exhibition in the university’s Grand Parade gallery. Close relationships between the university and organisations like CINECITY make it easy for students to engage with the culture of the city.

Our city has long celebrated the creative and the curious, and the Brighton literature, language and linguistics courses provide the perfect environment and community in which to develop as a writer, researcher, thinker and individual. 02

LITERATURE, LANGUAGE, LINGUISTICS A programme of guest speakers, enables students to meet and learn from professional writers who are successfully working as novelists, scriptwriters and authors.

Dr Chrystie Myketiak, a sociolinguist, leads the English Language BA(Hons)

I am particularly interested in how language operates as a social practice to construct and challenge notions of norms. I plan the classroom experience, assessments and modules so that students realise that although critical thinking and analytical work can be challenging and time-intensive, they are sources of passionate engagement, pleasure and courage.

Learning outside of the classroom is a regular feature for our students. Visits to cultural and historical exhibitions provide a fresh perspective, as do on-site projects within the local community and events. Our creative writing students were among the winners at 2017 Brighton & Hove Arts Council Poetry competition and festival. Undergraduates Veneta Neale (pictured left) and Sophie Baldock were amongst the runners up in the student category, and the winner was Patricia Osborne from our Creative Writing MA. Our students go on to work in many areas, including journalism, publishing, speech and language therapy, teaching, NGOs (nongovernmental organisations), politics, social work and research.

Brighton has a rich creative and cultural history, serving as inspiration for writers from Charles Dickens to Graham Greene to Nick Cave. Literature and the arts is at the heart of city life, exemplified by the biggest arts festival in England, the Brighton Fringe Festival which takes place every year in May. Optional, short-term placements with local organisations (these can range from assisting with radio production to handling social media) enable students to gain invaluable work experience, add some more skills to their CV and make contacts in the business community. Study abroad opportunities are also available to students in their second and third years. The breadth of modules available to our literature, language and linguistics courses means that you can shape your degree to suit your interest, exploring exciting new avenues, from journalism to television production, writing for the stage to graphic novels. 87

Ross Adamson, lecturer and researcher in the areas of documentary, factual television and digital media

We live in a media-rich society. It’s important that we study and debate the implications of our media cultures. How are texts constructed? What do we make of them? What happens when we make our own media? That’s what media studies is about – a vital exploration of the practices and cultures of media making and consumption.

Real-world experience is at the heart of our curriculum; students explore different perspectives and apply their learning to personal and social issues.

SOCIAL SCIENCES AND PSYCHOLOGY Studying social sciences is about more than just theory, and our students are encouraged to put their learning into practice through the community engagement module,where they undertake a voluntary work placement in the community as part of their course. They can take advantage of volunteer placements through the university-wide Active Student project in addition to their course.

Wesley Ankrah, Criminology and Sociology graduate – managing director of community interest company, Essential Living Future

The Community Engagement module gave me my focus and subsequent career in youth engagement. So many young people’s lives are being enhanced as a direct result of my time at the university.

Each year the community engagement matching event takes place – 30 organisations visit enabling second-year students to find out about volunteering in the community, and find their match for the community engagement module. The Human Library is a joint venture between the university and MindOut, a local LGBT mental health project. The library is designed to challenge prejudice and stigma. Trained volunteers act as ‘books’ to engage with students (or readers) and explore social issues.

Our Social Science degree is highly flexible enabling students to choose modules from across the social sciences, giving them the freedom to follow their personal interests and career ambitions by specialising in a particular discipline or exploring a broad range of topics. Professor Kate Bullen, Head of the School of Applied Social Science, became president of the British Psychological Society in 2018. All our psychology degrees are accredited by the British Psychological Society (BPS) and confers eligibility for Graduate Basis for Chartered Membership (GBC), which is the first step toward becoming a professional psychologist.

During my course I enjoyed the many facilities and laboratories on offer at Brighton. Having both a heat and a hypoxic chamber is something out of the ordinary. The staff were an amazing help throughout the year, supporting me at every step and giving great feedback. The course has given me further confidence to work with athletes in a professional environment, and since finishing I have a job as an exercise physiologist working with endurance athletes in Cologne, Germany. I could recommend the course to people who want to broaden their knowledge and get applied experience through the many possibilities the University of Brighton has to offer. 105


Studying an English language programme at the University of Brighton Language Institute will help you to meet the conditions of your degree offer, and provide you with excellent preparation for further university study.

English pre-sessional programmes Rawan Aseedan, English for Academic Study

University of Brighton Language Institute

The University of Brighton Language Institute provides English language courses for students who want to improve their English language ability and prepare for entry to university bachelors, masters and higher courses.

106

About our English pre-sessional programmes

English for Academic Study is a programme for students wishing to improve their English before applying to any university in the UK. You can take this course on a student visitor visa, and can take an online placement test to see which course (30, 20 or 10 weeks) is best for you.

Before I started my course I lacked confidence in myself and didn’t believe that I could write an academic essay. With this course, my confidence has really increased; my presentation skills have improved. Now I stand next to the board and talk about my subject without any hesitation.

Successful completion of this course allows entry to University of Brighton degree programmes without taking the IELTS test. Summer Pre-sessional English is for students who have received a conditional or unconditional offer of a place at the University of Brighton and is for 12, eight or four weeks, depending on your level of English.


All English language courses are accredited by the British Council. We’re recognised as a centre of excellence by the EL Gazette. Accredited by the British Council All English language programmes at our Language Institute are accredited by the British Council. Courses are designed specifically for international students and are available between four and 30 weeks before the start of your degree course, depending on your needs. Each course is taught by experienced teachers, many of whom are also examiners. Class sizes are small and you will use online learning tools.

Extended masters programme

Why study a pathway course?

A pathway course is right for you if: • you need extra academic and English language support before you start your degree • your current grades do not meet the university’s direct entry requirements. Courses at the international college are designed with your progression to the university in mind, ensuring you are well prepared when you start your degree.

108

University of Brighton International College

The International College has sites on the university’s Moulsecoomb and Grand Parade campuses in Brighton. You will have access to university facilities from the first day of your pathway course. Small class sizes and regular tutorial sessions will help you to succeed, and you will also benefit from specialised academic and English language tuition.

The teachers and student services at the international college are really great. Whenever we need anything, they do their best to help us. After my preparation course, I am going to study psychology and criminology at the university. In the future, I’d like to work for an international organisation. All students at the international college are offered guaranteed progression to a degree at the university on successful completion of their pathway course at the required level with good attendance.

Paying your tuition fee deposit

If you’re a self-funded international student starting a course with us in September 2019 you must pay your £2,500 tuition fee deposit by 31 August 2019. We need to receive your deposit before we can issue your CAS. You need a CAS number in order to make a visa application.

After you have firmly accepted your offer, we will send you an email to invite you to apply for your accommodation.

Receiving your CAS number

Enrolment and registration

A CAS is a virtual document that the UK Home Office will view through a secure online system when you make your application for a student (Tier 4) visa. You will need the CAS number to make your visa application.

To complete enrolment you will need original documentation (not photocopies) confirming your identity including your passport and visa or biometric residence permit, entry qualifications and written confirmation of your scholarship or sponsor, if you have one.

In order to request your CAS number you’ll need to accept your unconditional offer, pay the tuition fee deposit (if required) and complete the CAS questionnaire.

Entry requirements

Your academic grades are important, but other things count too. We look at lots of factors to make sure that everyone is given an equal opportunity to show their achievements. Some students are also asked to take part in an interview or provide a portfolio. We consider all applications very carefully including personal statements, references and work experience, as well as exam results and predicted grades. Your academic qualifications

For information about the academic qualifications, any specific subjects and grades that you need and English language levels that you need to apply for each course visit our online course finder. www.brighton.ac.uk/courses

International qualification equivalencies

If you don’t have a UK qualification our international equivalency guides will help you to compare the grades of your home country qualifications to the UK grades listed as the entry requirements for your course. www.brighton.ac.uk/international/ country

116

What if I don’t meet the entry requirements for my course?

If you don’t have the required academic qualifications or your grades are not high enough, you can take a university preparation programme at our oncampus International College (see page 108). When you successfully complete the programme you will be guaranteed a place on one of our courses. www.brighton.ac.uk/ubic

English language entry requirements

Our degree courses are delivered and assessed in English. UK Visas and Immigration (UKVI) and the university need you to meet their English language requirements for your chosen course. Check individual course information to confirm which English language entry requirements apply to you. UKVI requires prospective students who have not studied and been examined in English to provide evidence they have met the language requirement through a secure English language test (SELT), with an approved test provider. This evidence is required before we can issue a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) number. SELT results are only valid for two years from the time the test is taken. You can’t apply for a Tier 4 visa using test results older than two years.

As an alternative, the University of Brighton Language Institute can deliver its own language test. If you want to find out more and book dates for your English language test check our website. www.brighton.ac.uk/learnenglish If you want to study at degree level or above we can accept a number of other English language tests, as well as SELTs. For further information go to www.gov.uk/tier-4-general-visa/ knowledge-of-english. If you have a different English language qualification contact us to find out if you’re eligible for one of our courses. For a list of UK Home Office SELTs visit www.gov.uk/government/publications/ guidance-on-applying-for-uk-visaapproved-english-language-tests. For more information about UKVI requirements visit www.gov.uk/ukvi.

What if I don’t meet the English language requirements?

The University of Brighton Language Institute (see page 106) offers English language pre-sessional and pre-masters courses to help you meet our English language entry requirements and to prepare you for academic study at any UK university. www.brighton.ac.uk/learnenglish

The tuition fees shown in the table opposite are for international fee-paying students starting a standard university course for the first time in the academic year 2019–20. Some courses have non-standard fees. You can check the fees for your course by using our course finder. www.brighton.ac.uk/courses For costs for university preparation courses at our International College and the Language Institute go to page 108 and 109.

International student tuition fee deposit

If you’re a self-funded international student starting a course with us in September 2019 you must pay your £2,500 tuition fee deposit by 31 August 2019. Read more about the tuition fee deposit and refund policy at www.brighton.ac.uk/international/fees.

Paying your tuition fee

You can choose to pay your tuition fees either in full by 1 November, or in up to six instalments. You can pay online, by bank transfer or by recurring card agreement. Any payments not made in pounds sterling will incur bank charges that will be passed on to you. Contact the university’s finance department on income@brighton. ac.uk or +44 (0)1273 642959 for details about online or credit card payment or Western Union transfer.

The above fees are for students starting their course in 2019. For international postgraduate research tuition fees visit www.brighton.ac.uk/researchstudy/apply.

Early payment discount

Self-funding international students who pay their annual fees in full before 1 November 2019 can apply for an early settlement fee rebate (eligibility conditions apply). We’ll confirm the rate for 2019–2020 on our website in autumn 2018. www.brighton.ac.uk/early-settlementdiscount

Should I be paying international fees? If you’re not sure if you should pay fees at the international rate, we will contact you during the application process to complete a fee assessment form. All cases are judged in accordance with the UK government’s guidelines and are treated fairly and equally.

For more information, contact the admissions team on registryfeesassessment@brighton.ac.uk.

What’s included in my tuition fee?

Some courses require the use of specialist materials and field trips. Where these costs are incurred as a mandatory requirement of the course, they are covered by the tuition fee. Other additional costs may not be included in your tuition fee. Please check with the school that provides your course about possible additional costs before you apply so that you can budget accordingly.

General study costs

Whatever course you choose, you should expect to pay some additional study-related costs on top of tuition fees. It is a good idea to budget for the cost of books, photocopying and printing for example.

Cost of living

Your living costs will depend on where you choose to live and how you live. As a guide, we estimate that an international student living outside of London will need around £1,015 a month to meet basic living expenses such as accommodation, books and bills but not course tuition fees. www.brighton.ac.uk/ moneymatters

We’ll add details for 2019– 2020 to our website in the autumn term. You can combine this discount with the early settlement (subject to eligibility).

The University of Brighton is based in three locations across Brighton and along the south coast in Eastbourne. Check the course description or our course finder (page 120–122) to see where your course is based.

Our locations Brighton City Campus is in the city centre and is home to our arts and humanities students. Specialist facilities for making and designing, studio space and our world-class Design Archives all add up to an inspiring creative environment.

124

Around 7,000 students study architecture, business, computing, maths, engineering, product design, natural sciences, geography, construction, media and pharmacy at Moulsecoomb. A transformational development, that includes a major new academic building, over 1,300 student bedrooms and new Students’ Union facilities, is due to be completed by August 2021.

Falmer, set in the South Downs, is around four miles from the city centre and is where nurses and teachers, linguists and writers, social scientists, psychologists, criminologists and medical students are based. Falmer has excellent sports facilities, education resources for trainee teachers, the psych lab, restaurants, and good rail and bus links.
