Our aim is to inspire you and encourage you to push boundaries. Our lecturers are passionate about their teaching and research and are looking forward to sharing their knowledge and passion with you.
Hear from Roisin, a final year Law student, who shares her experience of being a student here, including her tips on making the most of your experience.
Gillian Jackson, an MBA graduate, describes how the MBA helped her look beyond the numbers – adding value to her employer (and her career!).
Watch this video from our accounting and finance undergraduate students to give you an idea of what they did on their course:
Dan Bennett, undergraduate programme lead, gives you a feel for what it’s like being part of Brighton Business School – we try to apply the same ethos to our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.
Things to do before you arrive
Once you have enrolled online, you will have access to our new student portal. My Brighton will make it easy for you to get to all the services, tools and resources you need during your time at uni.
Within My Brighton, you’ll have access any tasks or reading lists you will need to complete before you join in September. These activities have been designed to help develop the academic skills you’ll need throughout your studies over your course.
Undergraduate students will have four tasks, with the final activity requiring you to enrol on the ‘Belong at Brighton’ module and put yourself into a group. This is a six-week activity for which undergraduate students will receive a Responsible Enterprise certificate upon completion.
Postgraduate students will also have some suggested reading lists specific to their course – you will be able to access these from the My Brighton app. They should be available early September, but you will receive an email from your course administrator too.
United Nations Sustainable Development Goals
As Dan Bennett mentioned in his talk above, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UNSDGs) are a major influence in the way in which we develop all our courses.
We believe that these 17 Goals to Transform our World are vital so for the first six weeks of your studies there will be some work focused on the UNSDGs. You can find out about the goals now on the UN’s website here.
As a signatory to PRME, a United Nations initiative to raise the importance of sustainability amongst business students globally, all our courses are designed to prepare students with the understanding and ability to deliver change tomorrow within the context of responsible business.
