    Overall:
    The university is perfect. Just needs price improving on halls
    University:
    Perfect amount of facilities both day and night time. There are many facilities for students to get help on assignments also
    Course:
    The timetables are clear and simple to follow, the course is supported throughout the year by all lecturers thus making it easier to complete assignments. The content is challenging yet not too difficult to understand, always a joy to learn.
    Location:
    Lovely setting and perfect size
    Accommodation:
    The location is perfect for the university, I stayed in paddock field so was a two minute walk to the campus. The price was insane. Very high considering there are hundreds of students staying with two accommodation sites on the same campus.
    Settling in:
    Having stayed in halls the accommodation made it so much easier to settle in. I made friends within a week and went out with three of my flat mates on my first night

    Overall:
    Good
    University:
    Okay.
    Course:
    My lecturers are good. I am very happy with the course. I wish the library was slightly better and had more books to borrow. I think the expense of textbooks are really high.
    Location:
    Cute area. Slightly expensive
    Accommodation:
    My friends say it is good. I commute.

    Friendly place

    Overall:
    My university is amazing, the only thing I don’t like is the support they provide for mental health... or lack of. However, Brighton itself has great mental health services so it’s not that much of an issue!
    University:
    The SU shop is cheap and has a lot, there are tonnes of cafes on campus and they also serve alcohol! There are multiple gyms across the Brighton campuses, there are hundreds of societies! The library is really big and very useful!
    Course:
    Overall the university is really good. The staff are supportive, the location is amazing and the degree itself is extremely interesting.
    Location:
    Brighton is AMAZING! Such a beautiful city to live in and the university is in a great location itself and is super accessible via bus, train, bike or walking!
    Accommodation:
    I went into first year with Brighton being my second choice so I was unable to get accommodation, therefore I had to find my own home. I had little help from the university with this and it was very stressful.
    Settling in:
    I’m definitely a home person so leaving for uni was hard and it was difficult to settle in, however the uni made this process very easy and comfortable.

    Overall:
    If you're looking for somewhere arty and edgy, Brighton is for you. But don't expect many societies, halls, sports
    University:
    Societies and sports are scarce which is a shame
    Course:
    Quality of teaching could be better, some tutors aren't particularly interested in helping, but others can be particularly helpful
    Location:
    Ive been lucky as Im at the central most campus, others in Hastings and Eastbourne are however not so lucky
    Accommodation:
    Have been very helpful but not enough halls
    Settling in:
    I still get homesick but everyone at uni is very friendly, I think this is more down to the people I ended up living with

    Location:

    Overall:
    Only good thing was the location

  • juliadobron's avatar by juliadobron on 7th October 2015
    Overall:
    It has been great so far, and it's a big deal especially speaking as an international student. The people are friendly and can help you with basically every issue you may have. University rooms are well equipped and uni is currently under renovation in general, so it'll only get better.
    University:
    There is a form of student support service for basically every issue. Student Union is amazing, there are a lot of societies so anyone can find something for themselves. Libraries are very nice and well equipped. The events are really pleasant.
    Course:
    I find my modules very interesting. Lecturers and teachers are approachable and willing to help. Timetable is the only flaw, as it could have been structured better.
    Location:
    Location is amazing- my campus is located 20 minutes from the seaside by walk, and it's basically in th city centre.
    Accommodation:
    Quality exceeds expectations; however, living in halls of residence is really expensive. Location could be better, but Lemon Bus (free shuttle bus) is a good recompensation for that.
    Settling in:
    I found it quite easy to settle in.
  • Hysterix941's avatar by Hysterix941 on 7th October 2015
    Overall:
    4.5/5
    University:
    Superb
    Course:
    Lecturers feedback and use of materials during lectures were limited
    Location:
    Brighton is a lovely city always something going on. Generally enjoyed my experience at Brighton great people who will be life long friends.
    Accommodation:
    First year my accommodation was miles away from the campus I was meant to study in. Even though I requested to be put closest to my place of study. Far to expensive accommodation for what it was - basically consumed most of my student finance
    Settling in:
    Freshers and events were well organised and advertised
  • sl326's avatar by sl326 on 6th October 2015
    Overall:
    So far the university experience has been amazing, although due to on going construction in some building made some lectures less enjoyable.
    University:
    Lots of activities and societies to take part in, there is something for everyone.
    Course:
    It could have been better if all the schools were were close to each other.
    Location:
    Not far from town, the beach especially during summer.
    Accommodation:
    The uni accomodation are bit on the expensive side, would suggest to make a group and rent a private house.
    Settling in:
    Great city, night-life, lots of things to do,

  • by Anonymous on 30th September 2015
    Overall:
    It is alright, to make uni life better really do depends on who you get along with in uni. Otherwise, dorms and other activities are just a minor factor.
    University:
    It is alright, but i would really really prefer my course is actually located in brighton than in eastbourne...
    Course:
    It is not a bad course yet, not that interesting as well. So, its in the middle.
    Location:
    It is a bit too isolated. It's called the university of Brighton but not exactly in Brighton and in eastbourne. I prefer living in Brighton, not that it has more fun place to go but it is a nicer place than Eastbourne.
    Accommodation:
    Everything is well equipted, it's just the location takes a little time to the nearest grocery store.
    Settling in:
    As it is well equipted it should be fine. Especially being in a international dorm it kind of helps as everyone in the building are in the same situation as myself. So, it makes thigs easier to help each other out.
