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.

Student stories

Zoe Bowler, a 2017 Law with Criminology graduate, is now a Trainee Solicitor at top law firm Charles Russell Speechlys, gave us her take on how resilience can help you get the career you want, regardless of your A-level grades.

Eloise Scoley and Jasmin Haefeli, Marketing Management students, reached the final of the Chartered Institute of Marketing’s national competition, The Pitch. Find out how they did.

Ibrahim Ali Awatid, from Saudi Arabia, took some time out of his studies to tell us why he chose to study our Logistics and Supply Chain Management MSc.

Dan Bennett, undergraduate programme lead, gives you a feel for what it’s like being part of the School of Business and Law – we try to apply the same ethos to our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Things to do before you arrive

MyBrighton App

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

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

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.

Follow the news

Following current affairs will be key to your learning. To start getting ready for your course we recommend that you keep up to date with what is happening in the business and law world using  news websites such as the below – most can be followed on social media too.
