Starting university in September? Read TOP TIPS from our graduates!
I graduated from the University of Brighton in 2018 and learnt so much in my three years of study. You definitely don’t need seven woks in a halls kitchen and there’s always help available to students, sometimes you’ve just got to ask.
To help you prepare for September I’ve gone down to our 2022 Graduation to ask some of our graduates for their top tips.
What do you wish you had known before starting university?
Lottie Allen, Fashion Design with Business
Say YES to more opportunities!
Lucy Rollinson-Payne, Film Production
Just make sure to mingle with everyone at the beginning because you never know who you are going to meet and the contacts you will make.
Shahazhan Choudhury, Illustration
I wish I’d known more about what we were going to do and how quickly you have to do things. Researching my course was really interesting and it helped me with my illustrations.
What are your university top tips?
Emma Vine, 3D Design and Craft
Try to meet as many people as you can in first term because that’s where you might make some real friends.
Lewis Forster, Music Business and Media
Just don’t stay in your room!
George Andrew Price, Film Production
Don’t be afraid to ask questions and make sure to take notes. It’s always good to be curious!

I’m excited for the future! My placement year definitely prepared me for the world of textile 🙂
