    I love it. My ex-housemate just graduated with a degree in psychology and she loved it.

    It is quite expensive because Brighton is a nice place to be.

    There is a range of on campus accommodation from skanky but cheapish to nice but expensive.

    Finding accommodation after first year is easy. I believe there are still available houses now - which is very late for student accommodation.

    This gives you a list of societies and they all say how much they cost: http://www.sussexstudent.com/societi..._of_societies/

    This is a list of clubs (the prices for these are at least half the full year price since these are for only the second term): http://www.sussexstudent.com/sport/c.../sports_clubs/

    It's cheaper than a lot of places to join a sports club because you don't have to join the gym before you can do a sport.

    I don't know that much about the psychology department so I can't answer that.

    It's piss easy to get onto the downs from campus as it's surrounded by them on three sides. You can't really walk into town (it's about 4 miles) but you could easily cycle or get the bus (which goes every 5 mins weekdays during term time).

    Sussex (as a campus) is quite 60s and not that 'pretty' so to speak. But if you look past that it's really great. My sister's there doing french and italian, she loves it.The accommodation varies from very cheap and old e.g. east slope, and there is also some nicer stuff but you get what you pay for really. It's all decent.

    As for Brighton itself, it's AMAZING. so much to do and see, not like any other uk city at all! I would definitely recommend it, I live there and have done for 5 years, still not bored of it!

    It depends what you mean by pretty. The buildings take some getting used to but I love brutalism now. But the campus is very green and is lovely in Spring and Summer. There are flowers all over campus in Spring and it feels really nice.
