As a result of the review the University Management Board recommended that the university should continue to support the delivery of a more focused higher education offering in the town targeting the local community. This could be delivered through a broadening and deepening of its relationship with Sussex Coast College Hastings (SCCH).
This recommendation was endorsed by the University’s Board of Governors who resolved that the university evolve a new model of provision in Hastings as part of its strategic development. The objective is to develop this model working with local partners, employers and Sussex Coast College Hastings.
Vice-Chancellor Professor Debra Humphris said: “I am pleased that the University of Brighton will continue to play an important role in the continuing social and economic regeneration of Hastings.
“The evolution of our higher education provision in the town, in partnership with SCCH and other partners, will provide a more sustainable basis on which to continue to build on the successes of our students and staff in Hastings over the past decade.
“There are many great examples of this revised model across the country and we will look to learn from them. I look forward to engaging with our partners, stakeholders, staff and students in Hastings as we develop and roll-out the new model for future provision.”
