There's lots to get involved in at the University of Brighton, including taking part on the events programme, joining a society or talking part in sports.
International student social programme
The social programme includes excursions to major UK tourist attractions, on and off-campus events as well as taking part in events run by local community groups. The social programme runs all year-round, so even if you’re here for the holidays you can still join in. You will meet new friends, have the chance to visit places like Oxford and Cambridge as well as meeting locals. Join the Facebook group to find out more.
There are over 100 societies at the University of Brighton ranging from crafts to sports and religious groups. Societies are run by students for students and regularly meet and hold events throughout the year, including social events and celebrations.
International Students' Society
The International Students' Society (ISS) is run by international students for international students, and organises social events, cultural activities and outings throughout the year. All overseas students are members of the ISS in either Brighton or Eastbourne, depending where you are based.
Once term begins you will receive an email with details of events and activities and how to get involved and upcoming events. Previous events have included London theatre evenings, Thanksgiving dinner, a Greek party night, trips to Oxford and Windsor, trips to Amsterdam and Bruges, and conservation volunteering in the Sussex Downs National Park.
