We know you’re going to have a brilliant time here. There’s a lot to think about before starting university so we have put together some information you will find useful before you arrive and for your first few weeks at uni, to get your student life off to the best possible start.

After results day

Once you have your results there are a few things you need to do before you arrive:

  • Visit the Complete your online tasks page and look out for our emails telling you about enrolment.
  • Visit the Starting Uni area of the website  for an overview of what to expect from student life including work, finance, wellbeing, accommodation, opportunities to work etc and what you need to do before you get here
  • Once you’ve enrolled online, you’ll be able to download the MyBrighton app and have access to your online learning environment My Studies.

Your Students’ Union

Student Help

  • Support and Guidance Tutors (SSGTs) are dedicated to supporting any issues which may be affecting your wellbeing whilst at the university. They are a great source of information and advice on issues that might be impacting your studies and personal life. New students will be introduced to their SSGT in the first few weeks with us. You can find out more about your support system on the wellbeing area of our website.
  • Personal Academic Tutor – (PAT) these are academic staff assigned to help you with support for all academic aspects of your degree, which isn’t related to a specific module. You will be assigned a PAT at the beginning of your degree to help you develop skills to achieve your goals, such as guiding you through assessment feedback from all of your modules. PATs work closely with your SSGTs to give you all-round support.
