  • This university is better than some that I have been to and seen with the staff being friendly and the facilities being good  more »
  • As you drive into Brighton from the east on the A27 you know you are coming into Brighton because you can see some of the buildings of the university. It used to be the most noticed landmark, now the ...  more »

  • Claims to be a top 25 university but the Wi-Fi is far from top anything, you must connect through an over complicated and convoluted website that's so frustrating you end up just buying data. Paying 11 grand a year with non working Wi-Fi is a waste of money, this is not 1999 anymore it's 2017, get with the times or get left behind.
  • The university is not as great as it claims to be. Yes, there are some great teachers there and really nice staff within the university's professional services department, but overall, is not great. I have both studied and worked there. The library is great and staff very useful. Coffee shops and catering facilities on campus are also good, however, some staff (both academic and not academic) are very unapproachable. During my time at this uni, I've met teachers who did not want to listen to my arguments regarding my opinions in my assignment (essays). It almost seemed as my coursework needed to represent their values and opinions on a particular matter. Also, I am still deeply shocked by the case of Dr Lee Salter and the University's HR inappropriate action when they failed to protect the female student (and other students). From an ex-employee's view, I can only say that the University's HR department wasn't as supportive and professional as it should be.
  • mediocre uni - mediocre administration - manipulative supervisors and academics have a love affair with back stabbing students
  • The teaching staff are great. The admin staff are terrible and do not care about the students at all!
  • I've finished my first year here and I love it, a friendly and beautiful campus, a great night life close to campus. The campus has a great gym at the top of a woody hill. Of course there's also the fact that it pretty much borders the South Downs National Park. I can't speak for all departments, but I've found the physics department to be excellent, and to have a positive and relaxed atmosphere.

Where to stay in Brighton

During the height of the tourist season and on most weekends Brighton is a very congested city, where driving is difficult and parking is limited in the central areas most frequented by tourists. Avoid getting stressed out by staying at a self-catering apartment or a private B&B farther away from this part of town. Brighton's famous nightlife may be a bit far from there, but you can still enjoy seafront walks, good restaurants, and excellent shopping. Private seafront lodgings allow you to enjoy your stay quietly in comfort, while remaining within walking distance of Brighton's best beaches.
