THE University of Brighton is one of just 10 institutions nationally to be selected for a pilot scheme to develop students’ employment prospects.

It has been chosen by the Chartered Institute for the Management of Sport and Physical Activity to be a Higher Education partner for the scheme which aims to enable employability for sport and physical activity-related degree programmes.

Professor Jonathan Doust said: “We’re proud to have been chosen for this two-year pilot project. It recognises our national standing in delivering sport courses and this will offer many benefits to students.”
