  12. 12. What makes this course special?  Well-established, applied science degree course that develops academic skills with strong vocational relevance Extensive hands on lab practical experience Very strong commitment to student support Please ask the students “When I decided to go to University I was convinced I was going to stay at home in Essex and go to a University near me; this opinion changed as soon as I visited Eastbourne. The University was so friendly and helpful and I suddenly felt at ease; a feeling of home. I am currently studying Sport and Exercise Science BSc (Hons) with Physical Education which is exactly what I want to do and will lead me to a PGCE in Physical Education. I enjoy every moment I spend here; my course is amazing and fulfils all my needs and I am very happy I chose the University of Brighton.”
