Putting students at the heart of everything we do

Putting students at the heart of everything we do

A high-quality education and student experience is absolutely critical to what we do as a University, both now, and in the future.

From the quality of the teaching and learning experience to the wider opportunities to support students’ wider engagement - it cannot be understated how critical it is, to put students at the heart of everything we do.

Getting this right now will unlock our ability in the future to make even greater steps to enhance our teaching and learning provision and provide our students with the highest quality education they rightly deserve.

There will be many opportunities along this journey for you all to get involved with this critical work and I would strongly encourage to play your part, because when all is said and done, students really are at the heart of our university and getting the quality of their experience right, will sustain us all for years to come.

Our priorities for this strategic area

  • Brighton Achieves: Enable all our students to succeed and achieve their goals
  • Brighton Works: Empower our students in terms of their employability and the confidence and capacity to make a difference
