University of Brighton UCAS

Applying to university with UCAS Apply allows you to choose up to five different courses at different institutions. Depending on the time of year, you can choose these all at once or add further choices later. You do not have to decide on an order of preference at this stage.

The UCAS application process is explained in detail on their website. The cycle runs throughout the year, with UCAS Clearing opening on 1 July. Before you apply, make sure the courses you are interested in are still taking new applications.

The main UCAS application cycle opens in September, and the main deadline is in January. UCAS Extra then opens between February and June. If you have already applied for five courses through UCAS and you are not holding any offers, you can use UCAS Extra to apply to additional universities that still have places.

Student Union

The Brighton Students’ Union works in partnership with the university to ensure that students are getting the most out of their time here. The team of elected officers represent student views, campaign on important issues and oversee student sports and societies. We have over 60 societies, from belly dancing to Engineers Without Borders, and everything in between. Should you wish to set up your own society, advice and funding is available.

Non financial student support

A wide range of support is available to our students from when they first apply right through until after they graduate. Our Student Services team has achieved the Matrix Standard recognising the quality of information and advice they give on disability and dyslexia, careers advice, counselling and welfare, childcare and additional support for those who need it. The Alumni Association is a lifelong link to the university, with careers advice and networking events among the support offered.
