Brighton and Sussex University

Overview

Brighton and Sussex is unique as you are part of two universities which allows you to benefit from both. Highly accommodating as student satisfaction is their main priority. Also, definitely up to date as they try to evolve the course with what the current guidance suggests.

University Life

Make sure you are prepared with the basics of what any medical school would expect you to know. The main thing is try to stay calm and enjoy the interview. The people who run it are very friendly and are aware it can be a nerve-wracking experience. Read up on the NHS and other general information of the university and surrounding area. They look at your A levels and GCSES (MATHS B AND ENGLISH language B) also degrees if you have any. They will not look at you’re a Levels if you have the relevant degree. The university also has an access course which is very good if you want to join the university and do not have the necessary grades.

Social Life

The Campus is situated in Falmer away from the city and is next to the Brighton and Hove football club stadium. It is easy to get the city centre with either buses or trains. The campus is amazing as it is surrounded by lots of wildlife and contains all you need for your university life with the Falmer bar, gyms on both the Sussex and Brighton university side. The sussex library is one of the best and it’s amazing during exam times. There are plenty of societies to join that are part of the medical school, so they fit around the university schedule.

Interview

Brighton is very lively and friendly. The town is always busy and full of interesting shops and cafes. The universities are both great with a lot of social events being organised. The BSMS Medsoc is the main society and caters for all events (daytime/night time, alcohol/alcohol free). There are several main charity events organised throughout the terms where people can dress up, go out and have a great time.
