Feel free to ask me anything you want to know about the uni, accommodation or my course

Which accommodation did you stay in first year, and how easy did you find it to travel around campus by foot?

Kings Road on the seafront, I would definitely recommend it. Getting around on campus by foot is extremely easy (once you know where you're going)

Hey! I've just completed 2 years at the University of Sussex. I'm about to head off on my year abroad but I'd be willing to answer any questions you may have about life at Sussex and in Brighton.

I study International Relations with a Language (Spanish), and I lived in York House (Park Houses) in my first year.

Let me know!

It's great, I love it! It's so easy to get around in Brighton and there's so much to do. Most of the people I've met are really open-minded and friendly.

Everything in town is so close together, but campus is about half an hour out of the way. It's a lot quiter than London, but there's still a lot going on.

Ah okay, thanks for the replies.

As for the campus itself, is it modern? What are lecture halls like?

Do you mean the uni or the region Sussex? i’m guessing you’re talking about the region so what i can say is that there’s a lot of hills lol, where i live specifically there is a forest, parks countryside which is really nice to look at! especially when it snows! It’s a contrast from my home city london, a lot more peaceful in a way which i love. I don’t know a lot about the population but considering i’m from london where’s it can be crowded i think it’s a lot less. If you’re talking about the uni, it’s surrounded by beautiful parks, very diverse and quite political

It was more directed towards the general area, but you explained both so thank you, haha.

What about the student population? Coming from London, I am used to seeing people of all different types of races, without prejudice. Is Sussex similar? Or is there a large white-british population (without sounding like a racist?)

i think sussex is quite diverse, there are quite a lot of people from london studying there! There are a lot of white people obviously but there’s a lot of chinese students who usually stick with their own people tbh. I think there’s quite a lot of international students there, and as for asian and black students i feel like there isn’t that many there

Hey, this is so helpful thank you. So after getting some dissapointing results, I got given the chance to take Business Management and Economics foundation year and if I pass, I can do Economics or whatever in this subject as the normal course. I only have a few issues I'd like to clarify with someone with of a less bias opinion as the reviews seemed to be very one sided. 1. bad wifi? I'm not that fussy about wifi but is it good enough to watch a youtube video without buffering for example? 2. how are the student accomodations? 3. how are the lectures, teaching? 4. is there a student union? clubs societes? idk the reviews I read were saying that there was barely a SU and not many clubs/societies? 5. how is the night life? Apparently its the same prices as London, I'm not too fussed because I'm not much of a drinker, I'd like to think im pretty loud n funny n outgoing as it is but yeah. 6. Any general advice going into university?I've always been an introvert and I've recently started trying to socialise more, I want to but I'm just not the best at starting conversations
