The University of Sussex offers many interesting courses which I enjoyed. Furthermore, I found the workload quite manageable in comparison to my home university. The Study Abroad Office staff was always very kind and quick with answering our questions. Once they organised a welcome buffet for exchange and international students which was a nice gesture. The professors were usually also very friendly and open to questions. Additionally, there are plenty of societies and clubs one could join, ranging from a political society to a plant society.
