About us

If you want a university experience that excites and challenges you in your ambition, and gives you the support to get there, we’re your place.

Inspired by our talented research and teaching staff, our graduates can take their learning and passion into the world and use it for good – from helping communities devastated by conflicts, to creating technologies that save lives, to bringing positive change through new ways of thinking.

Sustainability is one of our top priorities, as reflected in our curriculum and research. Across the globe, our academics are engaged in projects to restore and protect our natural landscapes. At home, we’re committed to making our environment as green as possible.

We’re lucky to be situated in the South Downs. Our sunny, safe campus – with stunning architecture – is surrounded by a national park, and yet close to the ever-vibrant city fof Brighton & Hove and miles of glorious coastline.

It’s a winning combination.
