Working with schools and colleges

The University of Brighton actively works to inform young people about their higher education choices in a variety of ways.

Encouraging school pupils into higher education

The university has its own team dedicated to working with local communities, schools and colleges in our immediate area, where we can help to raise aspirations and provide advice and guidance for students of any age.

Encouraging science, technology, engineering and mathematics

The university manages STEM Sussex which promotes science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM subjects) to school pupils.

The university in Hastings

The University of Brighton in Hastings has a particular remit to work with young people in schools and colleges to encourage more to consider the benefits of higher education in an area where progression has historically been low. The university is also involved in a project to create two new academies in the area in partnership with BT and East Sussex County Council.
