Great university, i have honestly had the best time here in first year. living in brighton has been amazing and the people are great i just wish the SU put on more events for students at the university

Campus is very nice, there is a lot of studying space, computer clusters for students to use. There could be more water points on campus for students to use. There isn't enough seating available around the campus, however some new benches have been put in several places last month. My course was very interesting and intellectually stimulating, however there were modules that couldve been better organised, very often it took two months to get grades back for an assignment. Often lecture recordings weren't provided due to equipment in lecture theatres not working.

I study at British Indtitute of Modern Music (BIMM) Brighton. My course is Music Business. Overall the course has been really useful in terms of the number of work opportunities thrown at you, and masterclasses every week with industry professionals. Most of the lecturers are also industry professionals rather than just “teachers”, they have first hand experience in the industry and are up to date with all the current trends. However, some lecturers like to gloat about their careers more than they like to stick to the course content which can get tiring. The course itself is broad, not only covering the actual business of music but business in general and other aspects of the music industry such as sound production. The campus’ are spread out across the city which can get annoying. I personally find the extra-curricular activities to be significantly more engaging that the course itself. Alongside the course I have worked at a number of festivals and events gaining valuable experience in the industry, giving me the skills and contacts needed to actually manage to gain work after the course finishes. I have worked on a TV show, and have hosted 4 of my own events and started my own business. Overall, good course and good uni.

good course leaders but difficult transition to uni due to accommodation problems- foundation year was guaranteed on campus accommodation but I was put in Hove which was a while away from campus. The campus is nice and I get support with my academic advisor.

One of the best universities to be in Located in the sunny Brighton where the whether is always nicer Compared to rest of England. The campus is huge with something for everyone. Teachers are extremely friendly and very approachable.

I am doing a foundation year in social sciences and have thoroughly enjoyed the course so far. The two core modules have a variety of topics to interest people from many academic backgrounds, and there is a great selection for the elective module. I personally am taking the BSL and Deaf culture module, which is brilliant and has amazing lecturers. The student union is very active and there is plenty to get involved with if you want to gain work experience or join a society.

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.

Very concrete campus, it's quite windy sometimes. There are alot of seagulls, which can be nice. Lots of books in the library, which can be nice. Yeah, it's not bad as it goes.

Good uni. Modules are good and flexible. Academic advisors are helpful and you get a lot of support from lecturers. Services are good. Buildings are a bit old.

Large beautiful campus just outside brighton. Gives the option for one to experience both on campus living and city living as a student, which is invaluable. Great selection of courses with the option to combine your degree with many subjects. There is also the option in every degree to do a year abroad studying at a partner institution. Overall a great uni, but low contact hours and absent staff are common

Sussex is a wonderful university, with great staff and students, and nice general facilities. I would definitely recommend studying here. Good campus - nice places to eat and hang out, however the uni campus is let down by the amount of quiet places to sit and study. The library in particular was often full to the point of people waiting for free spaces, and when you have a short time between lectures and seminars to do some work, this is far from ideal. Once seated though, the library is a great place with a good atmosphere and plenty of books and resources to help with revision and essays. My course was enjoyable - I studied a joint degree of Politics and Sociology, and I found that the two subjects both compliment each other in terms of content, and allowed me to explore a wide range of topics. As well as this, they were both organised very similarly and well which meant that it was easy to stay on top of my work. Judging from friends courses as well, Sussex in general seemed to be very on-top of organisation, with many tutors marking work early and other staff making extra effort to communicate and answer questions from students at all points of the year.

The campus is situated in a nice area, not spread across town which is useful. The surrounding public transport is decent with train and bus links from town and surrounding areas directly to the university. Lack of a decent student union could be seen as a drawback to the university.

I am hugely enjoying my time at Sussex. I am studying Politics and International Relations (IR). The course is very interesting and most of the tutors and lecturers are very engaging. The only downside to the course in my opinion is that there are no IR seminars, we just have two 'interactive' lectures per week (compared to 2 seminars and 2 lectures in Politics). We always run out of time at the end for the Q&A and many people don't feel comfortable raising points/asking questions in a room of over 100 people! Sussex campus is a lovely place to be especially in the warmer months when everyone is sitting outside on the grass. The facilities on campus are great, especially the huge library and the gyms. Most of the buildings themselves are very modern and comfortable. There is so much access to careers services, like the careers fair at Amex Stadium, help from careers advisers and the various other careers events that take place on Sussex Campus.

On the whole I really love Sussex uni, I've had the best three years here and have been provided with so many opportunities - with this uni I've been to America and China in the same year! The campus is very cosy and easy to navigate

I entered this university through clearing. My exprerience with gaining accommodation was not good as I found out that the university had acctepeted me knowing that I would not receive a campus accommodation. This was not such a pleasant surprise as I have missed out on this experience. I have however had a good experience with my university course. My academic advisor is very helpful and is always willing to guide and support me. My lecturers are all very attentive and informative about the content of the modules and they make studying that much more easy.

The campus is very nice, there is lots of greenery and places to sit during the summer. The campus looks inviting. Facilities are okay depending on where you go /what course you're on. Some of the buildings are very old, but most of the buildings date back to 70's abs most haven't been done up since then it seems.some buildings are brand new and very pleasent to use. My course is well structured and im really enjoying it - there is loads of academic and personal support for students. The student union have a few cafes and bars around campus which is a good way to meet people the food is so good if not a little expensive.

I started at sussex in september and have fallen in love with the campus and surrounding wilderness. Now autumn is setting in and all the leaves are becoming orange it is beautiful. I love the buildings on campus and that every building has a lecture theatre, with the ones I have lectures in very comfy. the course is very intense, and I am drowning in assignments, but I am enjoying the content and find all the extra reading very interesting.

Perhaps one of the best things about Sussex is the layout of the campus. Unlike most universities, Sussex university includes halls within its campus. Everything is in one "town" almost like. This being the case, it's easy to navigate around, easy to meet new people within close proximity and also easy and quickly accessible to your lectures and seminars.

The campus is lively, safe and has everything you would need whilst at university on site. The facilities are alright but a swimming pool addition would be good. My course of psychology is a brilliant department offering support when needed. The student union should put on more events

The uni is great! It's a great mix of old and new and the fact that it's a campus based university with everything in one place just makes it even better!

I have thoroughly enjoyed attending this uni. With people coming from many different backgrounds I have got a real taste of the multinational experience, considering it is a top uni. Facilities on campus as well are up to high standards, with a very good library and good shops and bars for social life. My course does have some flaws I would say, with teaching seeming a bit lazy, and feedback being abit basic. Other than that the course is enjoyable at times.

The university of Sussex is an amazing place to go. It’s a very liberal university where free Speech and protests are welcomed. Brighton is a great place for students with loads of opportunities. Despite this, I didn’t feel like there was a large student union presence or a very studenty atmosphere at Sussex or in Brighton compared to Cardiff or Bristol university.
