    one of my friends was placed there this academic year (sussex was her insurance choice so she didn't get into on campus) she said it was actually a bit of a pain because it was 20 mins to get to uni and in the first year she didn't really know what was going on...she also didn't get on with teh course so left.

    i want to live on campus in the first year but am well up for the seafront after that - like you i think they look amazing! handy for going out in town too.

    I was thinking of living in one of the university-owned flats off campus but then I realised I couldn't be bothered to have to make the extra effort to get into uni for lectures in the first year. Also if you go drinking on campus and all your friends just have to walk 5 minutes to their accommodation afterwards, it's a bit crap having to go into Brighton!! :creep:

    Living in brighton does have its advantages. It costs less when you want to go back home in a taxi after a night out. It costs me half as much as my friends on campus

    Yeah I must admit, besides Lewes Court, all the accommodation on campus looks horrible! I'm not a snob or anything, I just think living in a room in East Slope would depress me as the rooms are so small and dark! I was all up for living in East Slope for the social side as well, but now I think I'm gonna have to choose Lewes Court. Do you think Lewes Court is anti-social?

    i think it's what you make it! it still has communal areas, and it's up to you how much you socialise...i'm going to go for lewes court. people tend to respect newer things more so hopefully it will stay nice, and although it's fun to go out to parties and stuff...it's nice to come home to somewhere quieter!

    I decided yesterday that I'm definitely going to Sussex in October '05; went to see Birmingham yesterday and didn't like it at all. When I get my accommodation form I'll be putting Lewes Court as my first choice, then Brighthelm.

    Undergraduate applications soar at Sussex

    Applications for undergraduate places at the University of Sussex have soared by a massive 22.7 per cent since the same time last year.

    The leap in application numbers, announced by the Universities and Colleges Admissions Service (UCAS) in figures released on 17 February compares to a national rise of just 8.9 per cent. Sussex has also seen the greatest percentage rise of all the 1994 Group of leading research universities.

    A total of 15,338 prospective students had applied to Sussex by 15 January, an increase of 2,833 on the 12,505 who did so by the same stage in 2004. The University has now enjoyed significant growth in applications for three successive years - and this growth is set against the backdrop of a continued rise in offer levels to study at Sussex.

    The increase does not include applications to the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS), which has itself seen a 17.5 per cent increase.

    Since the 15 January cut-off date, applications have continued to arrive, so the final increase in application numbers at Sussex could be as high as 25 per cent.

    The rise in application numbers also goes across the board in all science and arts subjects. Those with an increase of 30 per cent or more are Social Work (+99 per cent), Environmental Science (+81 per cent), Anthropology (+44 per cent), History (+43 per cent), Music (+40 per cent), Physics (+35 per cent) and Engineering (+31 per cent).

    Academic Registrar Owen Richards attributes the sharp rise in interest to the appeal of the University's new look and a dynamic approach to attracting prospective students. Initiatives have included targeting more students in London and the South-East and a wider range of visitor services, such as weekly campus tours, subject conferences, mature-student drop-ins and widening participation tasters.

    Re-designed student-recruitment publications are also suggested as a success factor: the 2005 prospectus now in use is the first to carry the University's new visual identity.

    "These have all encouraged prospective students and their families to visit Sussex," says Mr Richards.

    The new arts curriculum, introduced in 2003, has also continued to prove popular. Prospective students will get their first look at the newly revamped science curriculum when the 2006 prospectus comes out in early March, just a few weeks from now.

    I can't tell you about how good your particular course is at sussex but I would recomend it from the social side. It is a lively environment and there is always something going on, on campus. Brighton is a great city to live in and and city and campus are both beautiful. I wouldn't want to be anywhere else.

    I'm 99% certain that Edinburgh will be my first choice, and I'm torn between Sussex and York for insurance. Sussex has the edge right now because of being near Brighton and nearish home, and also the alternative conditions suit me.

    How likely is it that I'd get accomodation that I want if Edinburgh don't want me but Sussex is insurance? I'd probably go for East Slope; cheap and cheerful, hehe.
