I was disappointed by how my department was organised and how my course was run. I transfered onto a different course.Report

Regarding private accommodation - Brighton's quite expensive however some houses are better than others - which can be expected at any university. First year halls of residence; Eastslope - cheapest halls, generally where most parties are, quite a loud area. Park Village- Next cheapest halls, some parties here, no living room area where everyone can sit though. Lewes Court- 2 phases - one more expensive than the other. Generally a few parties here although they're a bit cliquey. The Park Houses - Kept to themselves, couple of parties. Stamner Court/Northfield - Most expensive accommodation, rarely good parties as its hard to get in the front door unless someone comes down to let you in.×

Brighton is a fantastic place to live. It is a welcoming city that attracts the most creative of minds. Accommodation and nights out are all reasonably priced and there is a wide range of activities to keep you occupied. Its already laid-back attitude becomes dramatically emphasized in the summer, when it suddenly seems that nobody really goes to work and is always up for a good time!×
Student union- politically active yes, but could work on improving student events and other social aspects.Report

Timetable is organised badly, for those who don't live on campus to have to travel in 4 or 5 days a week for 8-10 hours of lectures is unnecessary & inefficient, it could be done over 2 days.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
