The societies and nights out available were tragically boring, and only catered for people in ‘lad culture’. The events were only in clubs that were ridiculously expensive with no student deals - ironic that it’s supposed to be a STUDENT event. Furthermore the cost of £50 for a freshers ticket again created more irony, especially when that £50 ticket is a con, because it tricked you into thinking it was worth it, yet people only go to 4-6 of the events max, which doesn’t cost £50 overall.

Overall, freshers fortnight was banging. Although, I’d enjoy more nights out in Brighton. The move in process was easy and pain free, very helpful.

Move in was quite easy and unstressful, liked my halls as was very central to town which made it easy to pop and get bits and bobs i had forgotten in the crazy process! Freshers week was quite mental with so many things to do and see. Ended uo going out a lot! My tip would be to check out the events before you come and go to ones you think you may be interested in as highly likely youll meet people youll like and be similar to there!

So many different events to choose from, a band for not much money that covers the whole 2 weeks of events pretty much every night. All of the events I went to were so much fun and Brighton nightlife is incredible.

Freshers was great, it was a good way to meet people and would definitely recommend it! Remember to be yourself and that everyone is a lot more excepting in university

Freshers at Brighton was super fun. Like honestly. I bought the AAA ticket through the uni and this gave me access to two weeks worth of events, and to be fair, with the amount I'd have paid in individual entry prices to the events I went to, the price was well worth it! There were UV parties, cheese nights, themed fancy dress nights (the most memorable being the Pensioner Party) and all round it was AMAZING. My only drawback really was that the wristbands were only valid till midnight, and in some places you got no priority over people buying on the door even though you'd paid loads for the wristband already!

Meeting me people I didn't find as easy during Freshers as there's so many events to go too, however I think the freshers wristband was well priced and pres in my halls and flat parties made it easy to get to meet and talk to new people before heading out.

Move in was super helpful and everything was in order. Freshers experience was a bit naff because there was a lack of diversity in the events they put on, but that might just be my taste.

I found the freshers experience at the university of Brighton very fun. As I am now in my second your it was quite a while ago however the re freshers I did as a second year was just as enjoyable. I very much enjoyed the variety of events and places however I found that there could be a little crowding especially on the popular nights making the whole night a bit of a nightmare aha puns but yeah it was good

Freshers week was so much! Every night for 2 weeks there would be an event on including paint party, UV party and much more exciting club theme nights. The arrivals party on the first day was a great way to socialise with your flat mates and a good way to have fun together.

freshers week was brilliant, in fact it was actually 2 which doubled the fun. Can't say I remember a huge amount of it due to the discovery of drinking alcohol and university but from what I do I enjoyed it a lot. Freshers is where I've met a lot of my good friends which I see on a regular basis for a beer or three

Large amount of club events, but all felt the same. Lots of people always there was a plus but lots of queuing and expensive drinks in half the clubs

It was focused only towards 1st year students instead of returning 2nd and 3rd years also. Its set in most expensive club's, not many pubs/social gatherings

Freshers week was amazing, the events were well organised and were a great night out. Moving in was a great experience, meeting flat mates, meeting the people I had spoken to before university in the large group chats, having the opportunity to decorate my room and inviting all of my friends over. The overall freshers experience is unimaginable. The freshers events are great value for money, with nights out in Eastbourne and in Brighton, the overall experience was just amazing. The nights out in Brighton were better organised and much more lively as it meant we were not only with the students of Eastbourne campus, but of the Brighton campuses too, as well as Sussex students. Everybody had an amazing time.

Two weeks, good events, nice people, a great way to meet loads of new people who could be friends for life, although it’s quite expensive for a drink.
