We know the path to success doesn’t always go smoothly, so we asked our lecturers about the ups and downs on their path to the University of Brighton. Today it’s Johanna Bramli, who runs our digital music and sound art degree and says: “it’s a cliché story but it was thanks to a fantastic music teacher who saw through my quiet ways and believed in me that I found my confidence.”
“I have had the opportunity here to develop my practice in ways that I never could have foreseen. This is thanks to the amazing teaching staff we have on the DMSA course, as well as my fellow students, who I’ve learned at least as much from!”

“Many courses in this area seemed more focused on the technical considerations within a recording studio whereas Brighton allowed me to interpret the course how I wanted to and take it in my own direction.”
“Coming from a science and engineering background I wanted a course that would allow me to focus those skills alongside an arts practice, and the new MA at DMSA seemed to fit the bill. The reputation of the lecturers and previous students too was a draw, the quality and breadth of work emerging from DMSA makes it a really exciting place to study.”
“I am now working on a commission with the Brighton Centre for Creative Arts to create a piece to accompany Nika Neelova’s exhibition SILT in the coming months.”
“My time at the University of Brighton has been an eye-opening and artistically inspiring three years. The tutors have pushed my creativity to the edge and given me brilliant guidance throughout the modules. My work has excelled and innovated past anything I could have imagined.”
