Excellent place to live for night life, restaurants and shops and the bus pass is very handy. However rent and travel is very expensive

Study in Brighton

The University of Brighton and the University of Sussex are here, but really everyone knows Brighton for just one thing: The Seaside. It’s a famous holiday hotspot and it’s all yours.

University of Brighton

The University of Brighton started life as an art school in the kitchens of the Royal Pavilion in 1859 and has now grown to an inclusive and diverse institution that is home to 19,000 students. Subjects taught range from medicine to engineering and psychology to illustration.  The university has fantastic facilities as well as strong community and educational partnerships.

University of Sussex

Located just outside of Brighton on a rolling parkland campus, the University of Sussex prides itself on being a leading research-intensive university. There are over 16,000 students from over 100 countries and 96% of students are in full time employment or further study six months after graduation.

Brighton Student Life

Brighton is an eccentric, lively, diverse and buzzing city that welcome’s anyone and everyone with open arms. Often students love it so much that they find it hard to leave after university. 

Cost of Living

Accommodation

Student accommodation costs range from £82 - £521 per week; the average is £238 per week. 

Compare the average elsewhere: Guildford: £210/week, Bristol: £195/week, Bournemouth: £171/week.

(prices are for all purpose-built student accommodation (both private and university-owned) over the last 12 months, as listed on StudentCrowd)

The average price for:

A cheap meal at a restaurant: £15
A pint of beer: £4.50
A regular takeout coffee: £2.88
1L of milk: £0.93
A loaf of white bread: £1.07

Prices (for cost of living only) are about 9% higher than equivalent costs in Guildford, about 10% higher than Bristol and about 20% higher than Bournemouth.

Public Transport

You won’t need a car in Brighton, the parking charges are high and the university doesn’t provide enough spaces. However, “The Big Lemon” bus service is highly recommended by most students - the prices are decent (get day or week passes for better value) and the buses are environmentally friendly. To travel outside of the city of Brighton is connected well by rail, with direct services to London and major destinations in the south. As well as a by road, which is handy to be able to get great deals from coach companies that travel around the country.

Shopping

Brighton is famous for The Lanes, an area in central Brighton made up of twisted alleyways that are full of quirky boutiques, vintage shops, antique jewellery shops, cafes, bars and restaurants. There is so much to explore that even if you don’t need to go shopping, it’s a really fun place to just roam around. When it comes to high street shopping Brighton certainly caters for that too, you’ll find all your well-known shops at Churchill Square and Brighton Marina.

Top 10 Tips

 

1
The sea front

When it comes to entertainment, you’re spoilt for choice. Your best bet is to head towards the sea front - there’s the famous pebble beach, the Pier with its fairground-style attractions, loads of clubs, the Brighton Wheel and other places of interest.

2
London

You have easy access to all that London has to offer. The best ticket to buy is a day travel card as it’s cheap and includes unlimited tube journeys too. It’ll be up to 1/3 cheaper with a 16-25 railcard, so make sure you get one if you haven’t already. Buy your railcard online with an NUS Extra card to get it at a discounted rate. Wow, that’s 3 tips in 1.

3
Healthy eating

Foodilic is a good place to get a healthy and good value meal.

4
Not so healthy eating

But an absolute must! Eat Fish & Chips on Brighton pier, you can’t beat it. Make sure to finish off with some famous ‘Brighton Rock’ which is a type of hard stick-shaped boiled sugar confectionery deliciousness - you might want to book in with the dentist after though. 

5
Oldest Cinema in England

Brighton’s art house cinema, The Duke of York’s Picturehouse, is the oldest cinema in England and was voted to be the UK’s best in 2012. They host some fab special events such as fancy dress screenings and epic back-to-back film marathons that run throughout the night. Perfect for an alternative social.

6
Visitors?

If you’re looking for somewhere to take the parents, Preston Manor and its scenic grounds is a winner.

7
The West End

For an amazing day out, head into London’s West End with a couple of friends and take advantage of the Student Standby Scheme, which allows you to get reduced tickets at most theatres by visiting the box office an hour before a show begins. You’re not guaranteed to get a ticket, but for best chances call the theatre the day before and ask whether they’re likely to have any standby tickets, then arrive at the box office nice and early on the day with your student ID and ticket money in cash. Go with an open mind and a few options up your sleeve and you’re likely to have a great time.

8
Cocktail?

Valentino’s is a stylish little cocktail bar next to the Theatre Royal. It’s our recommended venue for a date or a special occasion that merits something a bit classy.

9
Festivals

Whether you are into music, food, comedy or paddling around the pier there will be a festival that will fuel your fancy. Brighton is also famously home to one of the best and biggest Pride festivals in the world; it’s certainly one event you won’t want to miss whilst living there. 

10
Watch a Premier League match

The American Express Community Stadium is home to local premier league team Brighton & Hove Albion. So if you are into your footie you’ll be able to catch some great games here.

Living in Brighto...

Living in Brighton is great. There is so much to do, and walking around the city honestly makes you smile. There are so many pubs, clubs, restaurants to try and even just going to the beach at the weekend is great. At night there is always a way to get home - with the 24 hour bus service - so you never get stranded after a night out! When on campus (Sussex Uni), it’s a bit of a trek into town, often about 25/ 30 mins on the bus but the train is a lot quicker. However, when you live off campus in second and third year it is so great being closer to town - however rent is very expensive and you do often have to compromise with certain things. read more

Public transport is great, buses are constant and on time! The shopping center is filled with great shops and variations. read more

Birghton has possibly the best public transport in England, it's not too expensive if you know which tickets to buy and when. The shops are always amazing to find odd bits and bobs as the Laines provide all sorts of niche shops (especially if you are into Vintage clothes and Books). The cost of living is very high but I have only lived in a 2 bedroom house as well as student accommodation so i'm probably not the best to judge. read more

Brighton is expen...

Brighton is expensive. No two ways about it. BUT, there are ways to get around that as a student. Choosing student nights in clubs, re-using a 24 hour bus ticket for multiple trips in a day, utilising the aldi, all of which make Brighton more affordable. Brighton has loads of pubs and restaurants, but as a student these will be less important than you think they will. Public transport is golden, with buses from Sussex to Brighton running every 5 minutes in the day and 10-15 overnight. The trains are cheaper and faster but less often, with 3 running every hour. I didn’t do much shopping, but every time I needed anything I was able to find it in Brighton. read more

Speaks for itself; Brighton is an expensive location. It is lovely, but the weather during term time does not reach its peak in terms of summer. Brighton was often very cold, so you do need to wrap up for a night out. Also, it is quite a trek from the university, and transport fees can really add up. A bus ticket for one night out is going to cost you £3+ and a return ticket via train is £2.40, and the trains aren't 24 hours. read more

Cost of living is ridiculous, it's like London prices by the sea. Amazing night life, best night life in the South. There's loads of clubs and bars and pubs with a different vibe in each. Massive shopping centre with all the chain shops but there's also The Lanes, which is full of independent shops and one off items. Massive range of places to eat out. Loads of buses and a good rail network, buses are a bit expensive for students as you have to buy a day rider rather than just a return for the main route to university. read more
