The University of Brighton was founded in 1859, starting as a small school of art and growing to become one of the U.K.’s most diverse and inclusive institutions. Today, the University has an enrollment of more than 18,000 students across its three campuses in Brighton and Falmer. Known for its teaching and research quality, the University attracts not only British students but also students from around the world.

Most classes are held on either the main Falmer campus or the Moulsecoomb campus, which is just a short bus or train ride away from the student residence halls. Some courses, particularly those in art and design, are held on the City campus, located in the cultural heart of Brighton and a short stroll from the beach and pier. Both the Moulsecoomb and City campuses can be reached by frequent bus and train services which run directly from the main Falmer campus.

The main train station is also in close proximity to the Falmer campus, making downtown Brighton a mere eight-minute train ride away. Within close proximity to student residence halls, the Falmer campus boasts a newly built sports centre equipped with studio space, gymnasium, cafe, fitness suite, dance studio tennis courts and football and rugby pitches.

AACSB Accredited

The University of Brighton School of Business and Law has received accreditation from the world’s largest business education alliance, the Association to Advance Collegiate Schools of Business (AACSB).

This prestigious recognition is reserved for fewer than 6% of business schools worldwide. An AACSB accreditation pinpoints institutions that are focused on excellence in all areas, including teaching, research, curriculum development, and student learning.

The accreditation process, spanning five years, focused on the university’s School of Business and Law and involved a comprehensive evaluation in May 2023 by a panel of business school deans from leading British, Australian, and Canadian universities.

“When students choose to come to Brighton to study, they know they will be joining a world-leading institution for business education, where industry engagement and research underpins real-world learning that prepares our students for success in employment or entrepreneurship.”
