Formerly City College Brighton and Hove

Social activities and free time

What can you do in your spare time?

Our social programme

We offer a range of leisure and sports activities for students studying at our Brighton campuses. We encourage you to meet new people, make friends, practice your English, get to know Brighton and settle into life in the UK. 

The MET is so much more than a place for you to study. International students are also welcome to join the general college sports and enrichment programmes offered during term time at all Brighton MET and Northbrook MET campuses.
