The University of Brighton is an English university with a community of 21,000 students and 2,600 staff based on campuses in Brighton, Eastbourne and Hastings. It has one of the best teaching quality ratings in the UK and a strong research record, factors which contribute to its reputation as a leading post-1992 university. [4] Its roots can be traced back to 1859 when the School of Art was opened in the Brighton Royal Pavilion. The university’s focus is on professional education, with the majority of degrees awarded also leading to professional qualifications.

The university has an international reputation for being one of the UK's leading design institutions [5] and it has educated many key figures in the Arts, Turner Prize winners Keith Tyson and Rachel Whiteread studied at the Faculty of Arts, as did the artist Alison Lapper, Cliff Wright, illustrator of the Harry Potter books, the designer Julien MacDonald and the writer-illustrator Emily Gravett. [6]

The Design Council's national archive is one of a number of internationally significant archives held at the University’s Grand Parade campus. Brighton is home to the UK's Centre for Excellence in Teaching and Learning in Design.[7]
