Hi, I'm in the third year of Creative Writing and History at Chichester.
Personally, my honest opinion of this university is very mixed. The humanities department to which the English & History subjects belong to is definitely one of the smallest departments in the university with lecturers and courses having been cut in the past year (2 history courses, the English Lit MA & 2 history lecturers have been cut). The lecturers that are still here are good but it's worth knowing what a tenuous situation these subjects are in. Also, in my year at least, I get the feeling that the majority of people are here to just have fun and get a degree. A lot of people leave midway through class or don't show up at all and there's not a big academic community or vibe.
With regards to the wider sense of the university, it is quite small which can be nice. However that does mean the SU socs are limited in variety. Additionally, the wider social scene is still quite typically university and alcohol-related. The SU events tend to be evening parties and places for drinking - any other events they do have very low turnout.
So, yeah, that's my experience and thoughts. If you have any specific questions feel free to ask.
