reviewed on May 6, 2014

Literature has been very enjoyable. Language less so. Teaching not as good as I expected it to be in lang, excellent teaching in lit. Disappointed that there was no summer ball and freshers was very short lived.

LLB (Hons) Law @ Sussex

reviewed on March 7, 2014

Studying law is great -some lecturers may have a voice which puts students instantly to sleep but the exciting ones more than make up for that minority! Most of the lecturers make the topics exciting and the cases that you learn to accompany the different laws are so crazy and interesting that they're super easy to remember.
The reading list given at the beginning of term is pretty decent and only needing to buy 5 books for the year is pretty ideal (though they can be quite expensive considering a lot of them are available in the library -I would still recommend buying the essential reading though!)
Law is an incredibly interesting subject, though I'm sure a lot of people on my course are just hoping for a degree that will get them lots of money!
The work is difficult but the content is fantastic, the lecturers are lovely and you're surrounded by amazing people and resources!

Brighton is a fab place to study and an even better place to party! Did somebody saying CLUBBING CAPITAL? ...There are a lot of night clubs on the beach front which is pretty amazing and there are so many that you are spoiled for choice! I'd definitely recommend The Haunt, Oceana, Wah Kiki, Coalition, Shoosh, Digital and Revenge (a gay club with fantastic music) -Definitely my favourites!

If clubbing isn't your scene there are frequent flat parties on campus (you just have to find someone that knows about them) and pubs/comedy clubs dotted around Brighton!

Making friends at Sussex university is incredibly easy -all newbie students are nervous for no real reason, everybody is in the same boat! Some accommodations are far more sociable than others. I would definitely suggest going for a non-en-suite accommodation if you want the full-on party scene as the most sociable students tend to live here. Park Village is probably the most lively non-en-suite residence! Though if you prefer having your own bathroom AND a lively social life, living in Northfield or Lewes Court would be the place for you! Stanmer Court can be sociable however it depends on if you are lucky enough to be housed with lively people. Note: Stanmer Court tends to be the accommodation for a lot of foreign students -This is only worth noting as I (speaking from experience) found it more difficult to socialise and have a craaaazy freshers, initially, as all of my flat were chinese students who were quiet and kept themselves to themselves (though they were lovely people, it wasn't the party-life i had hoped for). Stanmer Court also has the reputation for being the most 'boring' accommodation so if you want quiet, it is perfect for you but if you are a clubbing/party-fanatic, I would recommend the other residences! Either way, the porters and services provided by the uni are top-notch -I had my bathroom door replaced within 30 minutes of reporting it to reception at the beginning of term (just an example). Overall it is safe to say that accommodation is a strong point for the University of Sussex and it is so lovely to be studying alongside so many different people from so different cultures!

The campus for University of Sussex is great. Being so close to all of the lecture theatres and seminar rooms is incredibly convenient! The campus itself is surrounded by trees, grass and flowers, for example, and is beeeeautiful in the sun.
The campus also has 2 student union bars -East Slope and Falmer Bar which have cheap drinks and lively atmosphere. East Slope even has 'Skint Night' on a Tuesday where there's lots of music and it is essentially turned into a 'mini-club'!
Both of these bars also sell cheap food which is delicious and can serve as the perfect hangover cure! Though if you would prefer a restaurant-type meal, there are various cafés and restaurants dotted around on campus too!
There are two shops -the SU shop and the Co-Op (The SU is a lot cheaper though the co-op offers more variety and you CAN get student discount with an NUS card).

Speaking as a first year law student, the University of Sussex is a fantastic place to be and I definitely made the right decision coming here to study law. The work-load is already tough but I am still having the time of my life and making the most of my uni days. Well worth the effort!

BA (Hons) Anthropology and International Development @ Sussex

reviewed on November 12, 2013

teaching is interdisciplinary and challenging! the course is amazing and there are good opportunities for talks organized by the school or department.
People are quite involved in politics and current affairs. It's also quite easy to make friends as people tend to be really nice.
The campus is nice and in the middle of a national park which means trees and woods everywhere. The library is open 24h during term weeks and its quite big and have lots of brand new computers; amazing online facilities so you can access books, journals from any place.
