Creative degrees showcase

Art, design, theatre and music

A London degree by the sea


Our creative degrees are validated by the prestigious University of the Arts London, the largest specialist art & design university in Europe. This means you get the same quality of education - just without the London commute.

Welcome to the MET

A history of creative practice

Today we're Greater Brighton Metropolitan College, but over our 108-year history we've had a number of different names including the West Sussex College of Art and Design, Southern Theatre Arts Centre and, more recently, Northbook College. In this time, we've taught thousands of undergraduate students, producing successful artists, designers, musicians, actors, dancers, producers, technicians and many more. 

We hope the information you find today will give you an idea of what it's like to study with us, and inspire you with what you can achieve.
