Things to do before you arrive
My Brighton app
Once you have enrolled online, you’ll have access to our student portal – My Brighton. This app makes it easy for you to access the services, tools and resources you’ll need throughout your time with us.
Within My Brighton, you’ll have access to any tasks or reading lists you 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.
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 where you’ll receive a Responsible Enterprise certificate upon completion.
Postgraduate students will also have some suggested reading lists specific to your course, which you’ll also be able to access via the My Brighton app. These should be available early September, but you’ll 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 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.
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.
