Study in Brighton

Brighton is a small, lively city by the sea with a vibrant, cosmopolitan community that welcomes students from all over the world. It has a thriving creative environment boasting an eclectic range of theatres, galleries and leisure facilities, as well as two universities. 

Brighton is a perfect setting for a high-school, offering students a wide range of social and educational extra-curricular activities outside of the college.  On the beach, you can go paddle boarding, eat traditional fish and chips or enjoy the rides on the pier - not to mention the stunning countryside just outside the city centre.

In addition to all that Brighton has to offer itself, the train to London takes less than an hour where you can visit the capital’s museums, art galleries and much more, including the UK’s political epicentre, the Houses of Parliament.
