Life by the sea

Student life in Brighton has so much to offer. Relax on the city beach, named by CNN as one of the top 5 in the world, or check out the art stalls, tearooms and fun-filled pier. Get a different view of Brighton’s stunning coastline by boat, or take part in a game of beach volleyball, football or rugby at the UK’s only beach sports centre.

The weather in Brighton is so nice; it’s really sunny. The city is very beautiful, and you’re also very close to London (less than 1 hour away by train) so it’s very, very convenient.

I love living in Brighton. There are many different types of restaurants, so international students can still eat food from home. Brighton Pier is a great place to take photographs and watch beautiful sunsets.The local people are also very nice and friendly – they will always help you if they can.
