Living here is a fantastic way to experience British culture. In summer, you will mix with the thousands of British people who flock to the seaside to enjoy and celebrate in the sun. Festivals of film, comedy, entertainment, sport, art and culture run throughout the year. Amongst all this, Brighton is one of the safest cities in the UK for students.

Campuses are close to international airports that connect to Europe and the rest of the world. Brighton is only 30 minutes from Gatwick International Airport and less than an hour from central London. It is a 'supercity of the future' for its digital business and creative profile and this is reflected by its free-thinking, friendly and colourful reputation.
