- Program Description:
Brighton's colorful character, history, architecture, and cosmopolitan culture all combine to make it an exciting and vibrant place to live and study. The Brighton program allows you to enroll in a range of University of Brighton courses in a variety of disciplines. You may study for one semester or a full year. Despite being small enough for you to bump into friends in the center, Brighton is surprisingly sophisticated and often dubbed "London-by-the-Sea." With the sea on one side and the South Downs on the other, the city has an open air feel.
The Brighton program is administered in the US by the USAC Central Office and in Brighton, England, by a Program Coordinator who is responsible for the overall operations of the program abroad: securing appropriate student housing, organizing exciting field trips and overseeing your general well-being. Mary Jones is the Program Coordinator for the Brighton program. Mary and the American Office will arrange your housing, assist you with registration and provide an on-site orientation.

- Setting Description:
- Brighton, developed as a holiday resort in the early nineteenth century, is located on the southern coast of England. Today it is a hub of activity year round and its European atmosphere attracts all kinds of people with an enduring affection for the city, its community, and its quirks. Brighton is conveniently located only 30 minutes from London's Gatwick airport and 30 minutes from Newhaven, which has ferry crossing to France. Although most tourists never look further than the Palace Pier and the Royal Pavilion, students will find a lively alternative scene. Brighton has many markets and stores and its boutiques, whole food shops, open-air cafes and buskers (street musicians) make it a must-see.
