To help you get the best start as a student here, we’ve put together some online activities called Hit The Ground Running.
Taking part in this programme isn’t compulsory and it’s not a test, it’s just a good way to prepare yourself for your studies and get to know your way around our online learning platform, studentcentral.
The activities will include tips for getting ready to study with us and help put you in touch with current students who can answer any questions you may have about the uni or your course.
You’ll be able to access this area the day after you enrol online, by logging in to studentcentral and clicking on the Hit The Ground Running banner on the home page.
Congratulations to everyone who’s received an offer. If you’ve had your place confirmed, you’ll be able to enrol from today.
There are a few things to do before you get here, including the first stage of your enrolment and getting started with your email account and course materials.
Once you’ve enrolled online, you’ll also be able to see all the essential details about your course, including your start date, welcome events and a draft timetable. Find out more about what you need to do before you start.
See you soon!
Good luck to everyone receiving exam results this week!
If you’ve had a change of heart about what you want do next, or your exams have gone differently from what you expected, Clearing is an opportunity to assess your options and explore the possibilities.
If you need help navigating your way through the Clearing process, check out our handy guide. Or call us on 01273 644000, we can help.
You can also book on to a Clearing visit day at Moulsecoomb campus, where you’ll be studying, onWednesday 18 and Saturday 22 August. It’s a chance to look around and consider your next step. There’s a welcome talk and introduction, tour of the campus, advice about accommodation and student support and you will meet some of our academic staff in a Q&A.
Everyone who is looking to study with us in 2018 is welcome to attend. Course availability does change quickly in Clearing so if you’re not holding an offer get in touch first to confirm there is space on the course you are interested in before making travel arrangements.
Young people with an interest in science and engineering can learn how to turn their passion into a career at a science fair in Brighton tomorrow (11 July).
Big Bang @ Brighton will take place at the University of Brighton and organisers are promising “an exciting, colourful and noisy event” aimed at encouraging more students to pursue further studies and potential careers in science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM).
Organised by STEM Sussex, the University of Brighton’s STEM outreach department, the event is funded by the Sussex Learning Network’s National Collaborative Outreach Programme (NCOP), a four-year programme aimed at encouraging more young people, particularly those from disadvantaged backgrounds, into higher education.
Big Bang @ Brighton will feature a range of hands-on activities, workshops and shows provided by many local companies, universities and colleges and other organisations, highlighting the STEM-related opportunities available to young people in the area. Read More →
Global experts are coming to Brighton to discuss how maths can better assist science and engineering research.
The 15th International Conference on Integral Methods in Science and Engineering (IMSE) is being held on the Moulsecoomb campus of the University of Brighton in July.
IMSE 2018 will provide opportunities for scientists and engineers to exchange information and ideas that support their work. Experts from the USA, France, Germany and Edinburgh have accepted invitations to give keynote presentations, as has Professor Sergei Sazhin, the University of Brighton’s Professor of Thermal Physics.
The University of Brighton Academies Trust in partnership with the University of Brighton is offering paid internships in four Sussex secondary schools for 4-weeks this summer. This opportunity could help you gain valuable experience teaching maths or physics if you are considering teaching as a career.
As an intern you will be paid £300 a week and you can apply for this opportunity if you are in the penultimate year of a STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering or Maths) subject undergraduate degree.
Activities may include working with experienced teachers on planning, shadowing and lesson observations; helping plan and deliver lessons; running projects and master classes for pupils and providing small group support for pupils.
The internship offers:
• Hands on experience in a school for 4-weeks from mid-June to mid-July 2018
• The opportunity to earn while you learn. You will be paid £300 a week
• Full support from a dedicated mentor and support from subject teacher in your school
• The chance to experience mathematics or physics teaching before you commit to it as a career.
