The University of Sussex is situated on a large and open green field site on the South Downs, East Sussex. It is located on the edge of the city of Brighton and Hove. In the 2008 national Research Assessment Exercise Sussex saw 18 departments ranking in the top 20 in the U.K. All departments were deemed to be carrying out "world-leading" research, according to the study, and a considerable proportion of that research was described as "internationally excellent".

The campus has a lovely community to feel and having everything together is lovely. The buildings are a bit outdated and navigation isn't that easy but the everything needed for your course is accesible and perfectly organised.

Sussex is welcoming and inclusive. My course (International Development BA Hons) is amazing, the lecturers and tutors are super interesting to listen to and their teaching is insightful.
