Covid 19 has definitely had a big effect on my overall experience. However the uni has adapted with the use of teams meetings (video call). The lecturers are always there to help. I’m enjoying the the course.
They answer emails quickly and are always up for a meeting if you are struggling
This year has been extremely tough I know for myself, and all of friends also studying at uni. The online teaching is definitely not at the same level as the in person teaching received last year. It’s been really difficult doing a very demanding course with very little in person teaching and support. My hours of teaching went from 16-17 a week to only 8! However we’ve all tried to work as hard as we can, and make the best out of the situation! I am looking forward to hopefully having a better third year.
Disappointing. The social marketing module was the only one directly related to the topic yet the course was advertised as a social marketing masters. It felt like a general marketing masters with it just tacked on and no effort to hold the thread of the topic through modules. As I said earlier there were a couple of amazing lecturers who really did a fabulous job but most of it was pretty disappointing
Nothing in terms of support with this, few connections in the specialism
There were 2 or 3 amazing lecturers who stood out and really brought the learning and theory to life but the rest was pretty disappointing.a bit like I would expect at a'level and could be read in a book, not enough small group seminars
Fairly grotty location with lots of building work ongoing. A decent library but really noisy in there
Some lecturers were very supportive and others less so. Contact with staff was minimal outside weekly lectures
Uni of brighton has brilliant lectures and great work spaces but for the money isn't a good deal, and some aspects of teaching can be very very disorganised which makes getting assessments done really difficult!
I haven’t enjoyed university at all this year, it’s all been online and it makes me feel quite alone when doing assignments etc and even when covid restrictions were lifted we still have not had the chance to go in at all
All online which is rubbish
Libraries are good
As I said this year didn’t worth the money, I couldn’t use workshop, materials, I couldn’t see my class or my tutor at uni. The project reflected the distance, I m not happy:(
I didn’t learn much this year, and the money were tu much for ehat I had
With the covid was everything online, so hard for us students
They are really good, but not able tu use them. Even most of the projects needed the workshop
My teachers doesn’t teach us, doing product design it’s like teach it by yourself. This year I learn stuff not because the teachers explained but because I thought myself. I asked a few times to the teacher to be more involved to teach us the rules of design or at least the fundamentals of it, but he constantly reply that be a designer it’s about experience. So, what Am I doing to university if I learn alone? This year I lost 9250£ to have some free programs and pay some materials. Lost of money and time.
The university experience overall has been very enjoyable! The work is of course hard, but the tutors and university have been able to help me through everything and enable me to succeed in my studies. The equipment and facilities are varied and easy to access, and there are a plethora of usable study spaces around all of the campuses.
The university has a number of links to architectural practises both locally and further away, so it is quite easy to gain access to people who would be able to accept you onto a part 1 assistant tenure after the undergraduate.
Whilst normally the course is taught in person, it is currently being taught over MS Teams. Usually we’ll have two session a week where we can talk through our ideas and present work that we then get feedback on.
The architecture department has a wide range of tools and equipment, from drawing desks and plotter printers to the workshop. Everything is fairly easy and fairly accessible (even during COVID) and so there are plenty of resources available to use.
I am on the autistic spectrum and because of this I have a number of difficulties In my work, but the university has been very accommodating towards my difficulties and have offered a wide range of learning support options for me to explore.
The university is a great teaching facility overall. It’s easy to ask the lecturers questions, even online. Lectures are very interesting and sometimes engaging. But it’s not just the lectures that made my experience great, but also the vibrant colours of the lively city. Brighton is an amazing place with multiple things to keep you occupied. Whether it’d be countless number of pubs and nightclubs, rollercoaster ride on the pier, or just a stroll along the beautiful coastline.
There are quite a fe emails promoting job and internships that university send out via your uni email. This gives you a good grasp on what you like and where you want to go.
The online lectures are good, you have tutorial sessions you can drop into to and ask questions. The teaching hours are good too as they aren’t too long and promote self learning.
The university has great facilities that are easily accessible. A lot of their manufacturing equipment is based in their Advanced Engineering building.
They have tried their best to keep everything going throughout the difficult circumstances. We have always had updates and so much support from course leaders.
Lots of support with careers advisors.
Lecturers are very supportive and always get booked in for tutorials to make sure we are okay.
Very good sports facilities and always clean. We can hire them out for free and use in our own spare time.
Very good awareness with dyslexia & disability department. Have great mentors and always there even for just a chat if you are struggling.
