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. read more

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. read more

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. read more

Beautiful campus but maintenance in the student accommodation sometimes took a long time and the internet could disappear for hours or days. The student Union don’t host many (any?) fun events. The school I was in hosted online sessions for various careers linked with my degree. read more

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. read more

First two modules were good and reasonably well managed but just had one with an absolutely awful tutor (in my opinion as a masters-level educator myself) and am considering leaving. It's also taken two months to receive a reply from the complaints department! read more

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!!!! read more
