Library staff were helpful. It was during the student holidays, so there was plenty of space to work. It made a great difference for me having... More

A beautiful site set on the edge of the South Downs. This campus has an array of pubs, bar and shops along with it's own Co op. Buses run directly into the university and take you to Brighton centre in half an hour.

My son is deaf and did his first degree there in IT. I found them to be very helpful and down to earth. A really fun place and easy to get into. There is lots of parking too.

I've been to Sussex University on several occasions and am always surprised at what goes on there. Apart from business/academic meetings, there is a theatre and cinema and so close to Brighton City itself.
