Students’ part in Knowledge Exchange
‘Knowledge Exchange’ is the way that all the research and learning that goes on in the university turns into real-world benefit, and frequently involves students as well as academic staff, in collaboration with other groups including communities and businesses. This activity regularly has an impact in our local community, region and beyond.
You will have a range of employability events to choose from, both on campus and online throughout the academic year. Many involve employers coming to talk to you about live job opportunities they have at careers fairs and placement or part-time jobs fairs, and others are workshops and drop-ins.
As one of the first universities in the country to offer higher degree apprenticeships, many of our courses are offered through these routes. Employers will sometimes create new job vacancies as apprenticeships, as well as offering them as development to existing employees. If you want to study an apprenticeship, you will need to find a job role before applying to the university. Apprenticeship opportunities are advertised on the gov.uk website.
Our higher and degree apprenticeships have been developed with employers and deliver nationally agreed Apprenticeship Standards – the skills and attributes that have been identified as necessary for a particular profession. In addition, all our careers and employability support and resources, including development of the universities own Graduate Attributes, are available to you as an apprentice.
Successful apprentices achieve a University of Brighton award such as a degree, across these subjects:
- business and management
- construction, engineering and the built environment
- health and social care.
