I am studying at Institute of Development Studies at the University of Sussex. IDS is the best place to study development particularly gender and development. Very accomplished and committed faculty at IDS.

My experience at the University of Sussex has been heavily affected by frequent strikes and boycotts, which disrupt our education and leave us in uncertainty. As an international student, the delays in receiving our degrees due to these disruptions have serious consequences. It hampers our ability to obtain graduation visas, limits job opportunities, and impedes plans for further education. Additionally, the quality of education has suffered as some professors struggle to maintain teaching standards during strikes Many professors in my major seem to be struggling to keep up with their teaching responsibilities. Some rely solely on reading from slides, while others cancel classes due to strikes.

I first came to the university in 2017. The university in general basically treat students terribly. In my first year, the lecturers went on strike twice so I missed weeks of teaching - I think we were compensated £100 after filling in masses of paper work and this is not at all enough. I had strikes into second year, and third year and then...Covid happened. Throughout all of this, my lecturers were not very supportive, and when I wanted to do a Masters it turns out that the Graduate Scholarship which you get if you achieve at least a 2:1 in your undergrad degree is not applicable if you decide to take some temporary leave from the course, which I did, starting the course in 2020, stopping in December and re-starting in Sept 2021. Nobody told me this, and what's more the complaints team set up to deal with things like this consistently ignore my emails and are delaying giving me an outcome for my complaint that I submitted in November last year. My mental health is bad due to the uni.

Not much more than a unkempt, bland, brutalist, ugly campus that looks like it had been ripped straight out of the Soviet Union. The Internet is generally poor, it sometimes cuts off, you have to apply for some devices to be allowed a connection. Lecturers are monotone and express little or no passion in their subject bar one. My only positives are that the porter is a genuine joy to talk to and the region around the campus including Brighton is really nice and leads me to wonder how they managed to build such a drab place in an otherwise beautiful area.

I have enjoyed my time at Sussex very much. I was very pleased with my accommodation in first year, and always felt safe and happy on campus. Being by the sea is amazing and I have made great friends. There is a good range of societies however I feel that there is a lack of events on campus - some other Unis have their own club nights etc, which I feel we are lacking. My course was ok but I wouldn’t say the Uni experience was what I hoped for due to Covid. Sussex didn’t make much effort to work around the restrictions - for instance I haven’t been on campus for a timetabled event since March 2020 but other uni’s managed to offer some socially distanced / limited capacity seminars and lectures when the rules allowed. I feel that Sussex almost gave up, and didn’t try to work around the challenging situation.

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 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.

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.

A highly regarded university. Their career services and opportunities are excellent. I will base the teaching from before the coronavirus pandemic, which was outstanding. The lecturers are passionate and very well-versed in their subjects. COVID has placed restrictions on many universities, some have handled it better than others, others are still adjusting. Regardless, these restrictions should not be in place for much longer, so normality will be restored.

Came here because apparently the development economics program is good, but it's not. Teachers have no clue how to use online learning and don't teach well. More than half the course is just them assigning reading, so there's no teaching, just self study. On campus housing is lacking. Hot water issues, wifi outages, residences smell like mildew, and prices are astronomical.

Meh, at best Sussex is a lower than average institution. Internet is ghastly slow, IT facilities not up to par. Basically the university's marketing is top notch until you get here and realize its not an amazing school. Campus is way too small and out of the way, not that many options for eating, and the conduct of the housing department with covid has been ATROCIOUS to say the least. Didn't receive any hot water for the first WEEK I lived on campus and housing kept saying it would send someone and only sent one two weeks later. Education is sub par, and online learning has been horrendous.

Came here believing this is the best school in the world for international development. Two months later as a MA Development Studies student, I've learned that the professors couldn't care less, the material taught is highly superficial, and that the 'highly regarded' Institute of Development Studies is just a dilapidated building with almost no facilities. No quantitative methods taught and no meaningful career support, so alongside this course I have to pay extra money to learn statistical methods and programming on Coursera, which kind of defeats the purpose of attending school here.

What to say? Its been the worst decision of my life. Housing services are abominable. They say its ok to move onto campus, then a Covid outbreak begins and when kids want to stop their contracts and go home, housing says they have to pay the whole years rent up front or keep paying rent until someone else takes the room. I'm f*****g done with this university. The teaching has been garbage and every time I have to go into Brighton, its a 40 minute bus ride. I'm transferring out.

Sussex is the Trump University of the UK. Avoid at all costs. The education and curriculum was terribly simplistic, and student and academic support on campus is the pits. Constant strikes with no solution in sight means that not only did we miss out on almost 2 months of education, but that it will happen again next academic year. Housing services were the worst. Internet connectivity is horrible, and laundry is inordinately expensive. Rooms are tiny as well. Housing services actually told me to borrow money from family members when I said I had to defer payment. This is a private corporation, not a university. Avoid.

Avoid this university if you can. Psychology masters program is pretty lousy. Professors don't really care about teaching students, and course material is a little dated. The support services academically and lifestyle-wise are terrible. Counseling services take weeks to get back, and there is really isn't any place students can really hang out on campus. Campus is also not centrally located and quite a ways out of Brighton.

Not a nice place to spend my first year of uni. Campus amenities are lacking, education and curriculum at best scratches the surface, and location of uni is highly inconvenient. Wifi is terrible. Two strikes this year and no compensation for any of the time lost.

The campus isn't that great, the SU is non existent seriously! The library is so bad, never any space and is very ugly. There were strikes all the time interrupting my studying and didn't get any compensation besides £100. The feel of the uni is just very cold no-one seems that friendly. Sport at the uni is pretty bad not very well organised or incorporated into the uni. The uni is also outside of Brighton and is a pain to get into.The only good things about the uni is that my course is really good and accommodation is really nice other than that its bad uni.

The campus is easy to wrap your head around, and has plenty of places to eat, drink and socialise. There are plenty of societies, ranging from the classic ones to more niche interests. I haven’t tried myself, but I’ve heard setting up a society is really easy, so hence there are so many. The students union love to put on events, and they love to be inclusive, so there’s always stuff going on in the bars on-campus. The co-op is expensive but you’re never gonna do your weekly shops there anyway so it’s not a big deal

There are several reasons not to come here: education, housing, location, facilities. -I study Governance and Public Policy and the education has been mediocre. The content is no different from that of an undergraduate political science program and the assessment in no way tests you're understanding of the content at all. - Strikes effectively cancelled more than half of the taught content this year. - The housing services are highly subpar. Many residences are old and dilapidated, and wifi is absolutely atrocious. -Management is completely deaf to the concerns of students. If you were lucky, you could get back GBP 100 for compensation for many weeks of missed classes. Long story short: go somewhere better.

I am a first year student at Sussex University, studying Drama & English Literature BA. If you are considering coming to Sussex, I would strongly advise against going! They were on strike for a good half of the year, so I haven't been taught the full course, and my money is not being reimbursed. Not only this, but they are incredibly poor at listening to students' needs. I have bad asthma and this was made clear in my application. A drug addict was allowed to move into our accommodation part way through the year, despite the university knowing about her condition, and my health problems. I asked her politely to stop smoking illegal substance in our halls of residence, and when she refused, I reported it to the university. I had to go to various meetings and send several emails to get anyone to listen to me; and when they said they would take action, they didn't. I've had a really poor experience here and now feel I cannot move because it seems too stressful to start over again.

I sighed up for counselling but they stop my sessions 3 weeks in for reasons that havent been clear to me also this uni aint as progressive as it thinks it is especially to BAME students whatever is your second option or your on the fence about which uni to go to i can assure you it will be better than here

Do NOT go to this university! I studied towards a PdD at Sussex, which was the worst decision of my life. In fact, after two years I changed university. The location is inconvenient. The campus is ugly. The food on campus is revolting. Everything is super expensive and of low quality. Many academics care formostly for their personal activism. No Socratic dialogue. Just ideology.

Campus is big and green with a mixture of architecture. The library is absolutely huge. Situated in the countryside. Regular buses throughout campus and a train station withing walking distance (20 minutes walk from Northfield, the furthest accomodation). Can't really give feedback on clubs and societies since I didn't join any. I don't know what the students union actually did either so I can't say whether they were useful or useless. Never used careers service either. The internet was great over ethernet, 100Mb/s upload and download. Wi-fi had occasionally drop outs.

I study computer science at Sussex, the teaching is adequate but the course is not overly challenging compared to other unis where some of my friends study. The campus is nothing special really, There are not many social spaces and last year the university decided to demolish the main bar on campus to build more expensive accommodation. The computer science facilities however are truly excellent as a lot of money has been invested into building state of the art computer labs with modern hardware and dual 1440p monitors at every desk, but unless you are studying computer science or engineering you will not be allowed to use the labs and instead will have to use the library computers which are painfully slow and outdated. Before you decide to come here you should check whether your department went on strike this year, as this is likely to happen again next year and will cause you to miss out on teaching. Overall 4/10 would not really recommend.

To be completely honest, this university is probably the greediest one you will ever come across. It has the worst accommodations as well. My block has been out of warm water for an entire week yet they refuse to fix the problem even though 4 flatmates of mine including me have gotten ill from this incident. There is only one tiny supermarket which is always crowded and everything is constantly out of stock. I suggest you go elsewhere.

I've spent 4 years here so far, and been taught by faculty from two totally different schools. The quality of teaching on average is, in my experience, very poor. There were a few who were very good at teaching but the majority were perceived, not just by me, as being bad. The result is that myself and others I know felt as if we were teaching ourselves. Sussex faculty were also widely very keen to exercise their democratic right to strike whenever their pensions were affected, at the expense of the people that are funding their wages - happened twice to me since I've been here, during the run up to exams. Really helpful and totally not breach of contract guys, well done! The campus is being refurbished and expanded, but still only has two small shops where you can buy food - one of which is the co op, and the other the student union shop, the former very expensive, and both are under-supplied. Wifi is generally not the best. The library is good. Waste of time/money.

If you’re black the covert racism is unreal here you will be made to feel like you’re not good enough by the lectures even if ur work is of the same standard to a white student. This university is simply about capitalism and funny thing is they do so much teaching about capitalism but they are at the forefront of it. The co-op is ridiculously priced for students and the mental health services here are beyond a joke I think it’s gonna take a death for them to wake up. If you’re not white, dress like a hippie and mummy and daddy don’t pay for everything don’t bother ur not welcome here.

This is by far the worst decision of my entire life. The internet is beyond bad and here’s the great part about it ... THE UNIVERSITY DOESN'T CARE as long as staff are getting their monthly pay they really don’t give a damn. The security and porters have a very stinking attitude when you ask them for help especially if ur locked out of your house because sadly that means they have to actually do something when doing a night shift and come and help u get back in to ur room and they will show u that you’ve annoyed them by making them do their job they are being paid to do probably from your tuition fees which u are paying. If you live on Northfield honestly just forget about having a phone because the WiFi and signal is so bad that you won’t even be able to get calls from your own family. The lecturers have a stinking attitude because they feel like they’ve made it in life they worked this hard to have a lecture salary which btw for a few slides I feel are being over paid for.

Not gonna lie the campus has everything you need and the library is peng but in terms of accommodations some need to be taken down and redone (i.e Park Village) not having a living room and eating in your bed is disgusting. The internet works sometimes, again if you're in PV don't count on it. There's no emphasis on clubs and societies not really any fairs for them, but they do exist- I think. Overall would recommend this uni just make sure you stay ANYWHERE BUT PARK VILLAGE (& Lewes Court) - my friends who live off-campus tend to have the most fun, so that's always an option.

The campus is designed to keep students there as little as possible. there is no "hub" where you can go and spend hours meeting people and hanging out: I suppose the best approximation would be Falmer bar, which is always full to bursting. Even the onsite cafes are designed to keep people there for as short a time as humanly possible: spend your money, then go away please. There is a lot of green space but very few benches, and those that there are are spaced out so that's not very sociable either. Perhaps as a consequence of this, the general atmosphere is incredibly reserved- it's almost impossible to meet people you don't know except at "acceptable" times like societies. The library is over-full and not enough plug sockets. The wifi is patchy so it's unlikely that you'll be able to work outside on a nice day. In general my experience has been very poor here at Sussex. Disinterested tutors, low quality teaching and I wish I'd gone elsewhere.

The university itself is not bad in terms of course content and facilities, however some lecturers are useless. Not a single one of my emails have been replied to this term, and it seems the lecturers are never in their office when they say they are, so there is absolutely no support outside of class. They are so biased towards sports clubs over societies e.g if a sports club books a room they will get priority over a society usually. I would not recommend staying on campus, although campus life is fun, when you are trying to sleep and doors are slamming and music is blaring, the complaints will never be dealt with. Security will come for 5 mins, leave and then the problems resume. Not a single maintenance issue my flat have found has been resolved. The wifi is absolutely terrible and nobody gets any signal in the Northfield area. The only good thing about this uni for me is benefits for working class and poorer families. Sussex actually does a lot to help out here.

I am an international student who is doing postgraduate course this year (2018-2019). The followings are my honest impression about the University of Sussex. Overall, the University of Sussex is accepting too many students, thus, overcrowded. It is difficult to use facilities (e.g. library, cafeteria, etc…) especially during the daytime. ESL service are also fully booked, so not able to use it most of times. If I knew this environment, I wouldn’t choose Sussex no matter what their education level is as the school environment is not adequate for the study. It does not worth paying more than 20,000 pounds for this environment. I have requested University to improve the condition several times, yet they just shared irrelevant information… If you live the off-campus accommodation, you might face a trouble with commute. The local bus is often packed in the morning. Thus, you have to wait for next bus.

This university is all about making money. Their robotics and autonomous systems msc claims to be a conversion course however it is impossible to do without computer science/engineering background. Lecture slides lack information and the assignments are unrelated to the course content. For engineering and computer science go elsewhere and if you are an arts/ humanities student, don’t take their robotics conversion course as it isn’t a proper conversion course

Overall my graduate degree got me where I hoped to. The graduate student 'headlease' housing which I was placed in was a complete dump managed by a third party. Class was cancelled relatively often for faculty strikes - noble causes, but as an international student these fights were generally distant to me and it was hard to justify tuition costs versus cancelled class. I'm ultimately satisfied, but would encourage international fee-paying graduate students to consider their admission options and avoid using the Sussex housing office if possible.
