The University of Brighton prepares students for life beyond university, by incorporating real-life situations and challenges where they can develop the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to go out into the world and make a positive difference.
All undergraduate courses offer opportunities for work-related learning – whether a short placement, community volunteering or a year in industry. As a result of this career-focused approach, over 94% of University of Brighton graduates are working, training, or in further study within six months of graduation (2016–17 DLHE).
Courses are developed in collaboration with the industry, making sure that they meet the requirements of employers. Many have industrial advisory boards for continuing feedback. Professional accreditation is a feature of a large proportion of Brighton courses.
The university’s careers service provides career planning support before during and after studying. Careers centres on every campus offer guidance, mentoring, and employability skills. There is also an annual career fair and an online jobs database.
