The University of Brighton is a community of over 21,000 students and 2,600 staff based on five campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings.

The staff can trace the origins back to the mid-19th century in Brighton and the mid-20th century in Eastbourne. Since university designation in 1992 the university has grown steadily. The number of academic awards made each year - at levels ranging from pre-degree through to professional programmes and doctorates has grown from just under 3,000 to over 5,500 in 2006-7.

The performance in a range of external assessments of teaching quality is consistently strong. University of Brighton is one of only six universities currently rated as 'Category A' in primary education by OFSTED.

The last RAE found more Brighton academics working at international standards of excellence that any other post-1992 university.

Since 1992 the university has made considerable improvements to the environment in which the students live and work, with almost £100 of million capital investment and new libraries on three of our four campuses.

The Brighton and Sussex Medical School, a partnership between Brighton and the University of Sussex opened in 2003.
