A truly outstanding university and course. 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. read more

A fantastic University, teaching standards and career opportunities are unmatched with any other university in the South East. The majority of negative reviews are from this year (during the COVID pandemic), or regarding the WiFi. This is a great university, I’m sure the WiFi and handling of the pandemic will improve shortly. read more

Economics and International Development, BA Hons FullTime

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. read more

Economics and Finance, BSc Hons FullTime

Very bad academic and living experience at University of Sussex. Course content barely scratched the surface of the topic, and no hard skills were taught, something that is essential for economics and finance students. Living on campus is also highly frustrating, as amenities, food, quality of the halls, housing admin staff are very poor. read more

This course is a very interesting one. Best part is that most lectures are recorded and this is great for re-cap . However there isn't much help in all areas , as you are expected to develop independent study skills read more
