Brighton is not a cheap area but it’s still cheaper than London. Sussex is by far the best university on your list.

Hi Alexnova126,
First of all, congratulations on receiving offers from these universities! I am glad you are considering Sussex and passionate about the Law with American studies course!

I currently study at Sussex so I would be able to tell you about my experience here. I have personally enjoyed my time at Sussex and studying in Brighton especially as we are close to the beach and have access to lots of independent shops! I have found that nightlife (before corona of course) has been good as welll. My course has covered a range of different areas which gives us a good foundation and in final year in particular I have been able to narrow this down to my personal interests.

In terms of how expensive it is, I would agree with the other person that has said that Sussex is a bit less expensive than London and I would add that at Sussex University there are undergraduate scholarships and bursaries such as the Sussex Bursary that can help financially. This may help to make things easier and help to bridge the gap. Also, it might be beneficial to look at Sussex's on campus accommodation pages to see if there is anything available in your price range!

I know that this is a very big decision and I hope this information has been helpful in some way. Please feel free to ask me any questions about anything!

Best wishes,
Merade (Yr 3 History and Politics BA)

Hi there Alexnova126

Congratulations on all of the offers you've received, it's great to have so much choice on where to study!

I am currently studying at the University of Roehampton. I've enjoyed my four years here hugely. I really appreciate how easy it is to access central London and all of the cities famous landmarks from here, yet it doesn't feel too much like London at all - it's easy to take a step back from the busy city life. Also, the close proximity to Richmond Park is definitely a bonus, it's amazing for picnics in the summer or just going for a walk for a break from studying.

Roehampton has a good selection of on and off-campus accommodation. Our on-campus accommodation ranges from en-suite to shared bathroom and shower facilities and varies in price accordingly. The prices for accommodation change each year so it would be best to email [email protected] for the up-to-date price list!

Although London living is a little more expensive than other places, I would say it's very manageable. The maintenance loan you'll receive will be higher as it's scaled to match London living costs. However, if you are concerned about costs, we offer a range of financial support including scholarships for undergraduate and postgraduate students, as well as the Student Hardship Fund which helps students through times of financial difficulty. There is also a range of jobs on campus that will accommodate your exams and assignments, for example, the student ambassador role.

I hope this helps - good luck!
