Brighton University

Its a good uni. I like the teaching style. The teachers encourage you to work hard, they give you the key points of the modules, and leave you to look for resources. Brighton uni has lots of international students, mostly middle eastern and african students. Fees are expensive for international students read full review

Its a good uni. I like the teaching style. The teachers encourage you to work hard, they give you the key points of the modules, and leave you to look for resources. Brighton uni has lots of international students, mostly middle eastern and african students. Fees are expensive for international students so you have to work hard and it is what you make of it. I hear that Sussex uni is better than Brighton uni sometimes, I do like the Sussex facilities better and the library resources, but Brighton students have access to Sussex library which is very useful especially for Business students show less
