Sussex University
Overview

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".

A very chilled out campus, no trouble with lots of nice people. Most lecturers are really helpful if you ever need help

Great university, it’s amazing as it’s all on one campus so everything is within a few minutes walk including the on campus coop where you’ll do your weekly shops or even the pharmacy and all the other on campus facilities which is provided for the students. The campus is really well designed and is open and you’ll bever feel cramped. Being a university in the middle of mass open green areas and hills, it has lovely walks up the hills and around the whole campus and so many cool places to visit and great for breaks from revising. The university provides support for every student and you’ll always be able to make a few friends whether it’s from your course, your flatmates or your just people you’ve met along the way. If not the university has schemes to help out. The university is ialso in a great location. Located about 25 minutes away from Brighton city centre it’s an amazing place for students as they can go out in Brighton during the night or day due to it being fairly close. Brighton is wonderful with its beach and it’s colourful streets and city.

Course review , 15/05/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

I enjoy this degree course very much as it is very practical and in no way limiting. However, I feel there much more of an emphasis placed on broadcast journalism than any other journalism practice. The experience is good as we have frequent 'news days' where we have to produce, write and broadcast live news for a tv/ radio show within a day, which is supposed to mirror how it is done in industry. Facilities are good- a fully equipped tv studio with gallery and many recording booths.

I have really enjoyed my time so far at the Univeristy of Sussex. The course is engaging and some of the staff members go above and beyond to help you and are really approachable. The course material is really interesting and varied. However in one or two modules I have found the tutor was not really engaging with the topic or students. But I suppose it is like that with every course and uni really. Also the overseas field trip is amazing!!!

It's a broad and specialised degree at the same time, it is a great degree and gives a lot of opportunities. However some modules are the same as others already done before however some are very different. It helps broaden our knowledge and get the best out of the degree

Course module review - Employment Law , 26/02/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

Due to the nature of a qualifying law degree, there is generally not a lot of room for picking your own modules. However, I picked Employment Law as my optional module for second year as I hoped it would be useful, and I was definitely right! The module has made me thoroughly consider my position as a part-time worker, as well as thinking about how employers must act in all kinds of situations. As the module was fairly small, there was a lot of support from lecturers which was incredibly helpful.

Course module review - Family Law , 14/02/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

The module is assessed through coursework (50%) and through a written exam at the end of the year (50%).
It's highly enjoyable and informative, although some of the subject matter could be considered potentially upsetting (the course covers topics such as domestic violence).
The staff are friendly and willing to help, and clearly know a great deal about what they teach.

Course module review - Organometallic Chemistry 1, 14/02/2017

Submitted by Anonymous on

This module was exactly what I expected and had a huge range of interesting content. It focused a lot of the research done by people at the university which made it even more interesting and was taught really well, ensuring a good understanding. The exam was difficult in places, however it felt fair and all content had been taught in class.
