University of Brighton

At the University of Brighton, we understand it’s really important to look forward and to evolve. We have been anticipating and responding to change for more than 150 years and pioneered the UK’s first undergraduate degrees in computing and sports journalism. The research we do at Brighton is both important and useful. We never forget our research has the potential to transform lives and make a real impact on society and we are proud of our applied focus and the contribution our work and our graduates make to the world. In the last Research Assessment Exercise, Brighton was recognised as one of the top modern universities. Our groundbreaking research includes the development of treatments to help diabetics produce their own insulin – something that could benefit 285 million people worldwide – and involvement in a global team that has developed a new engine that can switch from two- to four-stroke mode, cutting fuel consumption and emissions. Learning in a research-active community means that answers aren’t taken for granted but are tested and questioned. Through dealing with new scenarios and challenging accepted ways of thinking, you’ll develop the skills of independent, critical analysis – and benefit from the latest knowledge. Our graduates include: fashion designer Julien Macdonald, OBE paralympic gold medalist and cyclist David Stone, MBE computer scientist and Fellow of the Royal Academy, Mandy Chessell Turner Prize winning artists, Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread disability rights and web accessibility campaigner, Julie Howel musician and DJ, Norman Cook aka Fatboy Slim chairman of Sapura Holdings Malaysia, Tan Sri Dato Seri Ir.
