University of Brighton or Sussex
Which University is located more centrally in terms of Brighton center and the pier etc. University of Brighton does my course, located on the “Falmer Campus”? I noticed that this is just outside of the centre of Brighton, is it easy enough to get in? Would it cost abit for transport there and back? I want to be right in the middle of it all and have the option to go out of a night easily without having to arrange transport etc. Any advice/suggestions?
Sussex Uni is all on one campus and therefore has a more ‘community’ feel – especially if you are living on campus in your first year. There’s a really good atmosphere, and the social life is excellent. Brighton Uni is a more spread out and therefore, you dont get the same feeling.
Overall, Sussex is considered a ‘better’ Uni academically but that does depend on subject.
The University of Brighton is thriving multi-campus university based on the beautiful English south coast. The university has three campuses located across Brighton and one further along the coast in Eastbourne.

Throughout their course, students are encouraged to build additional experience and skills through project work, volunteering or joining local entrepreneurial and other professional networks.
