Student services

For international and EU/EEA students

A very warm welcome!

Greater Brighton Metropolitan College (the MET) was created from the merger of City College Brighton & Hove and Northbrook College Sussex. Our friendly international team at Brighton MET is responsible for international students on courses across five sites in Brighton, Shoreham and Worthing, with EFL courses offered at its central campus in Brighton’s North Laine area, just 5 minutes from Brighton station.

The college has a long tradition of welcoming international students from all over the world including the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland.

We think that one of the best things about studying with us is that you are attending an established British college; on our academic and vocational courses you will learn alongside UK students.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!
