I was on the Chichester campus, which is a quiet little town with lovely cobbled streets. In terms of nightlife, you’re limited to the SU, which throws a wide variety of nights all the time. Each Thursday, we head down the Bognor campus and show them how it’s done! The community is really close knit, with loads of opportunities and chances to express yourself, so don’t be shy! The tutors were lovely, really supportive and encouraging, and help you out with all your worries. The career services are also top notch, and I feel confident I’ll be employed after Uni.
