What do you think?

The University of Brighton is working on a project to look at how we can best communicate what it’s like to be a student here. As our alumni, we think that you are the best people to help us with this.

It would really help us if you would take a few minutes to complete a short online survey which asks questions about how you feel about the university, what makes it stand out and how you would describe it to others.

If you are happy to support us in this, please click on this link to take the survey.

Many thanks in advance for your participation!
