The campus is great, has what you need but also compact and easy to get around. Nice bars and food outlets. Great course with enthusiastic lecturers

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.

Course studied: BA Geography The dedication and enthusiasm of staff across the department is outstanding. Not only are lectures stimulating and challenging, but they're given by every member of faculty - you won't just hear of so-and-so infamous scholar based at Sussex, you'll get to experience their teaching first hand. But Sussex isn't just about getting good grades; staff recognise and value you as an individual. Don't understand something? Non-academic questions, concerns or problems? Staff are approachable for any issue - big or small. Often I'd meet up with lecturers for lunch, a walk, or coffee; gone are the days of stuffy offices or quick questions in class. Exceptional all round experience over 3 years.

The campus is modern and clean, with each buildings representing a shape (e.g. camera, books). The campus is nice and there's a lot of green around the campus. In my informatics department, the facilities are excellent with the latest technologies. The course (computer science Foundation year) has helped me lay the foundation to stepping up to first year.

The campus is beautiful; it's the only one in the UK that is situated within the grounds of a national park. The university is also research-oriented and lecturers are extremely passionate and knowledgeable about their chosen fields. Facilities are generally OK, but suffer from overcrowding and excess demand (i.e. computers, library space, etc.). The Student's Union is very inclusive and works hard to provide students with safe spaces, opportunities, activities and creative outlets.

Very busy campus, I would argue too many students. But it is really pleasant and the library is a fantastic resource. The location is lovely and the teaching staff know their subject inside and out 8/10 times. Oftentimes the workload can be overwhelming and support is harder to come by than advertised but it’s worthwhwile and I would definitely recommend the university for anybody who is willing to put in the effort for their degree.

Really dependent on course I feel, I did both my UG and PG studies here. For my undergrad they were very supportive of me needing to retake a year due to health concerns and facilitated this well. However, academically I barely had any contact time with academic advisors. For my PG I don't feel my course was very well organised and we weren't told enough about assignments/getting our results proved a bit of a shambles. Additionally, they wouldn't issue any parking permits which made life pretty hard getting to and from campus if you didn't live in brighton like myself.

The campus is situated in the middle of the Sussex downs so it's really beautiful. It's far enough from the main town that you get a good campus experience but also close enough so you don't miss out on the great nightlife of Brighton. We have a huge 24 hour library and the students' union is really passionate about student experience, always hosting interesting and exciting events.

Beautiful campus just chilling in the middle of the South Downs, everything around campus is really green and the all the buildings look really pretty as well. Great Student Union bars, shame that they are getting rid of the beloved East Slope though (RIP). What more can I say...? Oh yeah there are loads of baby rabbits that run around campus at night as well <3 <3

Sussex universe provides the highest level of teaching for all students within the business and management course. The only thing is with the following elective which is finance the tutors and people who lead the lectures take the easy root and do not record all the lectures compared to other subjects.

Lovely campus with a whole range of things to do for students! The MBBS course in partnership with the university of Brighton, is an fantastic course which prides it self with high student satisfaction for the recent years. Very supporting and adequately equips students to become good doctors.

Basically the university is a rip off just like any other, only in it to make as much cash as possible and give money to the underseving staff including the vice chancellor who literally does nothing

The campus is bleak and empty at weekends, leaving first years somewhat isolated from the excitement of Brighton. Brighton used to be great but appears to priced out a lot of the interesting people. The library is too crowded and not a cosy place to work. Teaching time is limited and can leave you under occupied. The best part of my course was my year at a US university to be honest.

The student care is not up to scratch with what it should be. All in all the halls (except those that are extortionate in terms of prices) are not liveable and should not be offered in the state that they are in. I have been sorely disappointed with how administration staff and many lecturers have treated myself and other students. Some academics are amazing and the clubs and societies are very good! I think people choose this University for the location, as Brighton is such an incredible place, however the actual University is below average.

As an exchange student, I've been very disappointed. They should not advertise full year exchanges as they are most definitely not prepared for them. They are better for one semester but for full years I would not recommend.
