I’m on my final year and have really enjoyed my experience so far! I am studying Law with Criminology LLB. The course is challenging but well-taught and very rewarding. I’ve found that there is a lot of talent here, amongst the lecturers and students as well. The location is amazing. Brighton is such a lovely place to live, you really feel part of a friendly and open community. The city centre has all you could ask for in terms of shopping, restaurants, bars and clubs. Lots of quirky independent shops here as well which you’re unlikely to find elsewhere. I’ve loved visiting the beach in the day, or just to watch the sunset. I’ve really enjoyed my time at Sussex, and I’m likely doing my masters here. All with the exception of COVID-19, but that I wouldn’t blame this on the university and I feel they have really stepped up with their management of this recently! So no complaints from me at all.
If you enjoy greenery you will love the campus, it’s surrounded by a national park. Personally I love going for walks in nature so this is ideal. The University of Sussex is typically ranked within the top 20 in the UK, and rightfully so. However Sussex needs to make sure that the management are listening to its students, after all they are the ones paying. So please improve the system of listening to and responding to student feedback
The resources and facilities are fantastic, and beyond what I expected. It’s clear that Sussex cares about the success, well-being and academic performance of its students. I’m never short of places to study, the library has a newly-built cafe which is great, as you often may spend a lot of time there studying. The food in the cafe is nice as well. Campus WIFI has improved drastically, and I’ve found it to be very stable. The accommodation is nice, many are newly-refurbished, and some haven’t even been lived in yet. Overall, I’ve loved my experience here at Sussex!
I’ve really enjoyed my time at Sussex so far. It seems promising that we will be back to in-class lessons by September, which is good as online lessons have been a challenge to say the least. Students in general are friendly and welcoming, but have a strong work ethic, this has helped me focus on my degree as well. If you’re on the fence, I would recommend it here if you are a talented student who is willing to do their best, as that is what tutors will expect to see. The hard work pays off though!
I moved here from Rio de Janeiro in Brazil. I went to university for my first year there, and the standard of teaching here at Sussex is magnificent. The campus is pretty, lots of greenery. Support services here are amazing, the staff are very understanding and helpful for students
I’ve given a five star rating because, overall, my experience at the University of Sussex has been excellent. The facilities here are great, career support is amazing, mostly UK students with talented international students as well. The campus is big and buildings are well-positioned. Very close to Brighton city centre, those complaining about getting on a bus (which runs practically 24 hours a day), need to go back home and get their nappies changed. I would say however it would be nice if the housing department were more responsive to student enquiries. But overall, the university truly is great fun
I do not live on campus, and as such my experience may differ from others. Personally I’ve found it great. I’m working towards my degree in Economics, the content is being taught at a steady pace, students are not put under too much pressure. When on campus, the Co-Op is frustrating though as it is more expensive than other Co-Ops I have been to. There is no need for this, if anything it should be cheaper! Personally I feel proud to study here. The university has a great reputation, great sense of community and some lovely teachers.
I am currently a final year student in Sussex uni, the communication of this univeristy totally suck. One day I suddenly found out all my modules from canvas disappear, so I email them about it. Then I was informed that they put me in the withdrawl list and expect I am redoing my final year in September which I never decided to redo my year, and I asked about four person what should I do and they are pushing to another one, finally someone replied me that I have to appeal for the school decision, but in the same email, they told me the dealine was passed already. I have no idea how these person are educated? Is the univeristy have such a low requirments to hire an officer? Is it the UK culture teach them to push things to another person, so you don't have to solve the problems? These email took me at least a week to wait for thier replies which is unacceptable, even it does not take that much time to train my dog how to poop in the right place! THEY JUST WANT YOUR MONEY, THATS IT!!!!
I thought I would leave a good review and share my experience. It’s been fun and engaging, it does require to dedicate yourself to the work, however the university is quite flexible so I think it’s good for part-timers.
I am impressed with my experience at Sussex so far. The handling of myself as a student has been professional. The course I am taking is the Economics Bsc with a placement year. It is a highly regarded course and the placement year will enable me to gain industry experience.
I am currently in my second year of studying for my Finance BSc at the University of Sussex. My experience here has been mostly great. The campus is nice, and has already improved since I first arrived. The teaching is very good, online teaching is not ideal, so I truly hope we can return to normal lectures very soon. The accommodation is nice, the standard of education here is excellent. I’ve also found the workload to be manageable, and I believe most courses allow for part-time work to support living costs etc. I feel this university is great for giving people a good start in their careers.
Absolutely in love with this university! The teachers are very supportive and the way in which courses are taught and managed is very professional. The economics department is amazing! The accommodation is nice, a fantastic community support system, very close to Brighton City Centre for student nights. could not recommend this place more, it’s been such fun!
I don't know what university management/marketing shills are leaving these generic stellar reviews of this university, but my experience as a third year undergraduate business management student cannot be described as anything other than atrocious. Teaching here was terrible well before covid, which hasn't made it any better. If anything, the teachers now give less of a damn (didn't know that was possible). Its almost impossible to get in touch with professors to even clear doubts or queries. The support structure at this place is pathetic and it isn't even easy to get professors to find the time to help you. The You have to wait WEEKS for any type of counseling and the amount of construction going on on campus makes the whole experience noisy and unpleasant. Half the buildings are dilapidated, and don't get me started on the food here. Bottom line: Do not attend this place for your own sake.
Really love this university. There is a great sense of community here. The campus is pretty, and improving with the renovation works that takes place. However wifi needs to improve and the university needs to try harder to relate and understand the needs of their students. Overall I recommend as the University of Sussex is very good and I believe the staff and management truly care about the success of the university and it’s students, and strive to be the best and do right by it’s paying students.
What a fantastic university! The campus is stunning so really nice to wake up here in the mornings. The university is very close to Brighton city centre so there’s lots to do. Lots of bars, clubs, shopping and restaurants. A very exciting place to be. The university itself is great. The teaching is really good and the university is one of the best in the UK for its research output.
A truly outstanding university. Stunning campus, the lectures are exciting and engaging, and teachers are very knowledgeable in their subjects. There is a lot of support available for students and guidance in how to progress to their chosen career, I can see why this is regarded as one of the top universities in the UK.
Sustainable development masters degree is pretty lousy here. Been doing my degree part time so the mix of strikes, covid, poor online teaching, poor in person teaching seriously makes me regret coming here. The student support academically is horrendous. I have been getting almost no support from my dissertation supervisor which I find ASTOUNDING, let alone from the rest of the department. Teachers almost never take time to answer questions outside of class, and if they do its really rushed. Also sustainable development students don't have access to IDS? Wtf?
Done with one semester at Sussex and I really do not want to come back. I'm a computer science undergraduate student, and I know Covid has complicated things but WOW things here are bad. I got 70+ in all my classes this semester and feel like I didn't learn anything. I'm not sure if professors are usually this nonchalant and lax, but I do not recommend the computer science undergraduate course here. The university said everything would be safe, but my friends have been getting covid left and right in dorms. The housing department here is seriously rude and just doesn't care about students welfare.
I graduated in September 2019. Haven't been able to find a job since then. Development Studies student here and I only now realize that this place has not prepared me well for the workforce AT ALL. They haven't really given me any useful transferrable skills, and contrary to what people this, its not "#1 in the world for development studies" at all. No quantitative or qualitative analysis, no program management experience, no capstone design like LSE or Oxford have. The class strength is also seriously lousy and nobody really cares about their education. Avoid Avoid Avoid. Also, this place is not in the heart of Brighton and there is CONSTANT CONSTRUCTION, you cant hear yourself think.
