Sussex vs York vs BathWatch
Would be really grateful for responses😁
Yeah I see your dilemma. I suppose for development studies in particular I would choose Sussex due to its outstanding ranking above the Harvards and Oxfords of the world, even if it does rank as high on national league tables as York. I did get a chance to visit Sussex at a November open evening event so did get to see the campus (although it was mostly in the dark). It seems nice enough with some modern buildings though all 1960s plate-glass unis have some buildings that are grey, concrete horror shows but that probably isn't much different from many other UK unis that were established/expanded during that period. My sister is at Southampton Uni which has a similarly unappealing campus. I also had a chance to drive around Brighton briefly and it seemed nice as well though doesnt seem like a car friendly place. (I was looking for a somewhere to eat quick but couldn't find anywhere to park so gave up) Still seems like loads to do there, and constantly ranks as one of the best student cities in the UK so your unlikely to be bored. Only downside is after your first year you would likely have to catch the bus rather than walk to campus I think. If it was any other time I'd tell you go down there and decide what you think for yourself but nevermind. 😕 I looked on 'student crowd' and it doesnt rank as highly as York for student experience nor teaching (if you believe the TEF awarding system) Really comes down to whether you care about the 'Russell Group' label for your undergrad and which course fits more with your interests. Did you get a chance to visit York Uni by any chance?
