Students sitting at 2022 Graduation

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?

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.

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?
