  • Sir Basil Spence did some great work here designing the campus. Sometimes during the right weather and right time of day the viewpoints are breath-taking. A lovely campus to walk around.  more »
  • Very british, but the University is beautiful. The restaurant is not the classic University canteen, but very accurate in modern furniture and comfortable. The apartments are very diversified and there is a bar hangout for students, very cute

  • The campus was designed by Sir Basil Spence in the 1960's, the original buildings later gaining Grade 3 Listed status. The campus is green and beautiful, best experienced in the sunshine. The uni itse...  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.
