    ROSIE'S EXPERIENCE AT UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX

    Because I liked that it was in Brighton and the course was extremely interesting to me. I get to learn contemporary issues that relate to my interests as well as gain skills that employers are keen for students to have. I also heard really good things about it and upon visiting really like the atmosphere of the campus.


    Course Curriculum - 

    Really interesting and challenging, allowing me to learn skills that employers look for, such as ground modeling and Microsoft Excel statistical analysis skills. These can be transferred to any kind of job and so I really enjoy my course. Very contemporary.

    A PSYCHOLOGY AND NEUROSCIENCE STUDENT AT SUSSEX UNI

    Location was ideal, it has very good reviews and reputation and were able to offer me a unique course. I am able to live in a lively city but also near my hometown and it is not long to travel each day to the campus.


    Course Curriculum - 

    I really enjoy the curriculum and the flexibility it offers in determining what I study. The days are quite long and it is a very full-on course but I enjoy it a lot. I think in my third year I will have more choice as to what I learn.

    SUSSEX UNI ECONOMICS

    I liked it's close proximity to my home town and have always enjoyed going to Brighton. The university has a good reputation and good job prospects also and seemed like the ideal fit for me at the time.


    Course Curriculum - 

    It's been difficult but easier than I first anticipated. I enjoy the material usually. Even though I expected a lot of maths I did not expect it to be this difficult. There are good option modules for year 3, which is another reason i chose this university.
