Students starting in September 2013
For students starting at the University of Brighton in September 2013, the orientation programme happens the week before the new academic year starts. This programme runs Tuesday 24 September 2013 until Friday 27 September 2013. The series of orientation events is designed to help students adapt to life at the University of Brighton as easily as possible and meet other students.
The orientation programme is open to international and EU students who have accepted an unconditional offer from the University of Brighton. The programme is designed for students who will be completely new to the University of Brighton. As such, students who have previously studied at the University of Brighton's International College or who are studying on a Pre-sessional English course, the English for Academic Study or the Extended Masters programme are not eligible to join the programme. Students whose courses are due to start during or before the week commencing Monday 23 September are also not eligible to apply. If you are unsure whether you are eligible to attend, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
