What separates Brighton from other universities is access to professors – you can ask them about anything you’re not sure about, and they’re very helpful and engaging if you have any questions or concerns.
I’m currently working as a summer intern for an investment bank in Sweden and both the placement I did and niche courses I studied really helped me to prepare.
The University of Brighton has such a nice environment and my teachers gave me practical tools that I could apply in the classroom straight away. Now that I’ve done my masters, I have knowledge about English teaching, which other Dutch primary school teachers don’t have, so in the future, I can combine teaching, which I love, with inspiring other teachers.
Brighton is a wonderful city, close to the sea and it’s really close to London too.
My course gave me a strong foundation in problem solving, and I still apply all the skills I learned in my practice every day. Since gaining my MSc, I’ve moved to Brooklyn to work in a sensory gym and a pre-school, and the university offered tremendous support during the US entry application process.
Bristol is known for its creative and vibrant community and is the home of world-famous graffiti artist Banksy. You can go on the Bristol Street Art Tour or visit UpFest, Europe’s largest, free, street art & graffiti festival, attracting over 300 artists painting throughout Bristol over the course of a weekend.
It’s been such a stimulating experience. You get to learn so much about yourself, and have access to tremendous amounts of knowledge and resources. The staff are always willing to help and do whatever they can to improve the student experience and your experience of living abroad and dealing with challenging situations.
It’s been a thrilling experience, an emotional roller coaster, but would not change it for the world.
The new £15 million research and teaching facility will open in autumn 2017 and house state-of-the-art equipment including an aeronautical jet turbine engine and a new Electrical Engineering Teaching Laboratory.
Chichester is a typical English city and the majority of students from the University of Chichester are local English. I had great opportunities to explore the culture, and the environment helped me a lot to improve my English.
My experience at the University of Brighton will be of immense value in the future development of my career in the tourism industry. The focus of my studies has been practical and the teaching staff have been helpful, stimulating and encouraging. Living in Eastbourne has been fun. The beautiful countryside and friendly people will always hold wonderful memories for me.
