Brighton also performed strongly on student satisfaction in a number of areas, with courses in building and economics ranking in the top five nationally and physiotherapy and civil engineering in the top ten.
Professor Debra Humphris, Vice-Chancellor of the university, said: “Brighton continues to be a destination of choice for students from across our region, the UK and around the world. By focusing on what matters most to them, we’re setting our students up for a successful future – whichever path they choose.
“This achievement is only possible thanks to the hard work and dedication of colleagues right across the university. Their continued focus on our students, on delivering excellence in teaching, learning and research, and our commitment to making a real difference continue to shine through.
