Brighton combines the energy and cosmopolitan feel of London with a friendly atmosphere and sense of community. It has a reputation for being free-thinking and valuing different cultures and is known for its exciting cultural, music and social life. Brighton is home to a fast-growing, creative, digital and IT industry and the Lonely Planet rates it alongside Cape Town, Rio and Sydney as one of its top 10 cities with brilliant beaches, describing it as ‘a thriving, cosmopolitan city with a Bohemian spirit’.
Considered the sunniest place in the UK, Eastbourne is a lively seaside town surrounded by beautiful countryside. The campus is located at the foot of the South Downs National Park and is less than 20 minutes’ walk from the beach.
