The annual Whatuni Student Choice Awards (WUSCAs) highlight the incredible work carried out by institutions for their students. Each year we send a team of review collectors to university and college campuses across the length and breadth of the UK to gather student reviews. Students can also participate by filling in an online review form. Over 30,000 students participated in this year’s WUSCAs, making Whatuni the UK’s largest source of real, honest, student reviews.

best: we have a beautiful campus, so many restaurants/cafe/bars and more. And so many extra facilities and great lecture halls and rooms. Our accommodation is great too and gets cleaned weekly. worst would probably be that already we have a good location being close to Brighton, there isn’t really anything to do in Sussex itself.

The campus is located right near the South downs National Park and hence it is green everywhere. As a Sustainability student I am glad that the University takes sustainability very seriously and have incorporated many energy saving architecture in their infrastructure. Also the School I am is always reaching out to get feedback and makes honest attempt to work on negative criticism both about coursework or other things in general. The strikes by teachers at Sussex was the worst experience. Having missed almost a month of classes, seemed like a big waste of money. As a Masters student, with only one year, the impact was even worse. The University need to work on fulfilling demands of teaching community instead of building more buildings. Given the teaching staff is one of the important pride of the university, working on their demands could be improved.

I love how the university provides students with a good environment and the teachers always take good care of every student. More, the campus is very beautiful and convenient, especially the bus stop.

I can't say much about overall Sussex University but I love IDS to bits. Student support is awesome. The lectures, debates, multicultural perspectives, and the availability and openness of the teaching team makes for an all-round wholesome experience!

The best that University of Sussex is the studying and living ambience that support the students. It is including the teaching method, facilities, and faculties. While supported by the city's best offers, including parks, beach, and public transportation.

Social Development MA

University rating (4)

Sussex boasts some of the most fantastic professors I've had the privilege of meeting. The opportunities for learning and exploration are unmatched. The administration, however, is broadly opaque, unhelpful, and the ongoing strikes -a relic of their rediscence to treat the stellar facculty for what they're worth, has proven to be profoundly disruptive.

English Language and Linguistics BA (Hons)

University rating (4)

The campus is quite big so theres always places to explore and study. The campus is full of big green spaces for wildlife but also to sit and relax in when the suns out. Its located 30 minute bus away from the beach and city so students can choose different environments to explore- busy city, quieter campus, or the beach. To improve- campus could be made livelier- hopefully in summer there will be more of a buzz.
