    Hi - sorry you haven't had a response to this yet. I'm just going to bump the thread in the hope that someone sees this and can help

    I'm in 2nd yr of marketing and management at Sussex and would recommend it. A couple of years ago it was ranked 6/7th in the country for marketing I think and defo worth it. The business building is the nicest and one of the newest buildings on campus, right in the middle. The department is big which works in your favour because they're organised, have proper communication channels and a central office. I've met some really nice teachers in my time and because they've all had real, successful jobs they're down to earth and give real world advice.

    I'd look at the modules for each one - I know at Sussex we can pick electives in yr1 & 2. So you have 3 marketing modules + 1 elective module per term, I did French but you can do everything from art history to business-related subjects. Then in yr3 you pick your own modules from a list of like 25 + 1/2 core modules like 'marketing strategy' so lots of scope to choose what direction you want to go in.

    I don't know much about Nottingham, my friend goes there doing biology and she just goes out a lot. Sussex isn't in the city centre - 10mins train and 25mins bus from campus to centre of Brighton. Brighton is great but maybe consider if you want to be right in the middle of a city or a bit outside?
