About the institution
The University of Brighton can trace its origins as far back as 1859 when the city’s new School of Art opened up in one of the Royal Pavilion’s kitchens. It now has five campuses: three in Brighton and one in both Eastbourne and Hastings. Brighton is one of the UK’s liveliest cities and a popular holiday destination. The Grand Parade campus is near to the seafront and the famous Grade II listed Brighton Pier.
