First year: Was lucky enough to have great flatmates and we bonded straight away. However, I was slightly homesick. But, with the help of my friends, family and flatmates, I managed to get over it very quickly. Second year: Living with 3 other people who whom were my flatmates in the first year
By consistently sending fantastic emails which are super handy
Like most: Very interactive so it's not just the teacher talking at you the entire timr Least like: Not much except they can be monotonous.
They make you feel comfortable so you feel like you can say exactly what's on your mind. I'm not actively involved but this is what I've heard
Pretty good on the whole. Looking forward to when the construction work on Lewes road is done
Definitely! I live a 2 minute walk away from Mithras house which is where I study
Top class! A society/sport for everyone! I go to tennis club every Thursday
I've never used them personally for counselling as I'm fortunate to have great people to talk to. I'm also a big meditator so many things don't get to me like they used it therefore I feel pretty good most of the time. Academic wise, the feedback is always detailed and most of the time, lecturers will get back to my emails asap
I have really enjoyed the course and the city. It has been good to see how living away for home feels like and the responsibilities that come with it. I have enjoyed getting to know a wide range of people and making friends for life.
One of the module in second year was focussing on career options, development and planning. We drafted video interviews, cvs and cover letter and made a plan for the future after graduating. I quickly realised the importance of experience and chose to do a placement year before going into my final year. I was able to contact our lecturer in-charge of the placement and got a placement in my home town. Working in the Lab as a trainee biomed and being able to start my portfolio has meant a lot of opportunity are now open to me after I graduate.
I like that we have mixture of assessment style. they should also focus on the practical skill required for biomedical scientist.
most services are satisfactory. But the library is full around exam session.
it is away from the town but it has good access to train station bus stops and walking/cycling is also an option to get into town or the beach.
There is a lot of varieties of societies and all are very welcoming.
It has been difficult to meet people because of my housing situation but i have met more people now but it would be nicer if they actually gave all first years halls because it has made my whole university experience harder - maybe wouldn’t recommend because of my bad experience
Lots of opportunity
Some lectures cram a two hour lecture into 1 hour so they can have a longer lunch break
No proper student union bar only cafe where they serve bottled beer. Not many facilities
Yes ideal for study life
Very large selection and welcoming
Not used it
My experience has been up and down. In first year I hated my course and consequently transferred to a different one, I am now really enjoying my course which makes everything a lot nicer but I still feel as thought occasionally I am not getting what I pay for in terms of particular standards that should be met at uni.
Again, I’ve never visited these places because I am quite set on what I want to do but I’ve heard they are a great help
The seminars are good for assignment help but I don’t like the lectures as they are usually just being read off a slide and can get quite tedious
Yeah it’s good whenever we need to give feedback it is good
Quite good although I feel as though there should be more facilities that are cheaper such as cafes and restaurants as it is all very pricey!
Yes it is good but there definitely needs to be more halls of residence although one of the campuses is near an Aldi which is very helpful
I’m not sure I don’t do anything
Yes I do feel as though we get good feedback for the work we produce as well as getting great support through student councillors as well
Overall uni experience not bad not good but in the middle, hard to keep up with work when no revision materials are provided so make as much notes as possible as the ppt and what the lecturer says is the only thing thing that you can use to revise
Doesn’t help that much considering they mainly just give out leaflets for these things
Most - the ppt is always put up Worst - some lecturers have nothing but pics on their ppts therefore making it impossible to look back at the info that was taught
Representation is great facilities not so much
University is at a good distance in terms of accommodation and local amenities
There is a big variety of societies and sport that you are able to join
Support is at a decent level considering there is only one uni councellor
I love it at Brighton, the staff are so friendly and so are the students, my course is so much fun as I have all the freedom I want and it is a wonderful city to live in and study with such interesting shops and cafes
We get emailed opportunities for volunteering or skill building
My course allows me a lot of freedom, and i like that. Most days I work independently in the studio, but there are still regular tutorials were tutors will touch in and make sure you’re on track
The students union were super welcoming when I first started, they organised lots of events for freshers, and even now there are still student union led events for the students
There are good number of workshops and facilities, as someone in a creative subject I’m pleased at what is available to me! My only complaint that they don’t have any paint or art supplies :(
Yes, the grand parade campus is right the heart of the city walking distance both housing and the town centre, and the other campuses all have direct bus routes
I don’t hear very much about the societies, but I never sought them out. At the freshers fair there were many societies and teams that looked great if you were interested in that area (I’m jot much of an athlete)
Very good support, the student hub provides help for those struggling financially or with personal issues, within the first month we had a talk about finance that was super helpful
I don’t particularly enjoy my course so far but I’ve also been told the first term/year is a bit rubbish anyways. I like being away from home and the independence I have being by myself and the friends I’ve made, but apart from that the actual university side of it seems a bit pointless.
I haven’t looked into it so I can’t offer a reliable answer, but I haven’t heard of anything to help.
I don’t like how little guidance we get, the tutors I have don’t feel approachable or dependable for advice, but some people thrive off of this total independence. The subjects we’re given aren’t very personal or interesting either. The best thing so far has been the workshops with the technicians as they actually take the time to talk to you and help out.
I don’t even know if we have a student union or where it would be, so based of off that I would say quite poor.
The facilities are average. I wish there was more private spaces for students to work independently, such a studios with established places for everyone, but the darkrooms are good.
Yes it’s a 20-25 minute walk, super easy to access.
I personally don’t participate in any of the societies, however I went to the freshers fair when I first moved here, and if you are into sports or extracurricular groups there’s loads of options for everyone,
Not great, I don’t feel like I’d be comfortable approaching my lecturers and the feedback isn’t the most useful as they more just point out what’s not working than pointing out was has worked and being supportive.
I have loved university but feel that some extra guidance is needed when beginning the course and towards the middle of 3rd year. Brighton is a lovely place to live and study
There is help in terms of links via emails but no hands-on help as of yet.
Seminars are a lot more helpful than lectures
The SU have not been great this year. Not supporting the lecturers strike, no support for any political parties during the GE
Good but not very much
Our campus is a little out of the way and there is not much on site, but it isn’t too bad
Some lectures help more than others
Before university, I was apprehensive about moving so far away from home, not knowing anyone in Brighton and also whether I had made the right course decision. Four months in, I absolutely love Brighton, I've made some great friends and I am certain I picked the right course for me.
I really like that the powerpoints are made available on studentcentral. This makes it a lot easier to go back to certain parts of the module to make extra notes.
The student union bar is a really relaxed space to go and grab a drink.
The university has accommodation halls on campus, as well as a shop, multiple cafes and a bar. It is easy to get to the beach, the marina and supermarkets via the bus or train.
There really is something for everyone at Brighton uni. However, the uni are happy to accept new societies if students feel there is something missing.
Academically, tutors are always willing to give extra support when it's needed and are usually quite quick at replying to emails. There are SSGTs available to speak to about any personal struggles. I really like that the SSGTs are completely separate from course tutors, as it makes it feel more confidential.
Is very high quality University ....the quality of student life is very high as well ....the lecture sessions is to organizing and the lectures is too friendly and help us always
Very nice and friendly
