Students from Outreach schools and colleges
Make sure you add Outreach or Widening Participation to the further details field when you complete your application. For detailed information regarding the support we offer partner college student please see our schools and college page.
If you tell us that you are a care leaver on your UCAS form we will be able to offer you extra support. This includes our care leavers bursary, worth £1,000 for every year of study and guaranteed accommodation for the whole of your first year – including during the holidays. You will also have access to a student support and guidance tutor throughout your course. Your details will remain confidential.
You can tell us if you have been in care and for how long in the additional information tab on your UCAS form. Use the drop down tabs to enter your details. UCAS have made a short film that shows you how to do this and explains more about how you can benefit from sharing this information with us.
Declaring a disability
If you have a physical disability, mental health difficulties or an autistic spectrum disorder and you tell us on your UCAS form, we may be able to offer you extra support. You can tell us about this in the personal details section of your UCAS form under the heading Disability/special needs.
You can declare a physical disability, mental health difficulties or an autistic spectrum disorder at any time, but the sooner you do so, the better we will be able to support you. If you indicate this on your UCAS form we will contact you to discuss your needs when you are offered a place at Brighton.
International engineering students
If you are an international student and want to apply for our Aerospace Engineering MEng or Mechanical Engineering MEng, you will also need to apply for an Academic Technology Approval Scheme (ATAS) certificate.
Students who are nationals of an EU or EEA country or Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, Singapore, South Korea, or the USA do not need an ATAS certificate regardless of their course.
Please make sure you read the UK government’s advice on ATAS before making an application to us.
