Grammatiki's student perspective

"The University of Sussex is a leading institution and it is rated as one of the top Universities in the UK. It is located in a very exciting area which offers a once in a lifetime experience. The title of the MSc I attended was "Satellite Communications and Space Systems".

"This course was about the fundamental subjects of Satellite Systems. It provided a wide range of knowledge about both theoretical and technical topics. I chose this specific course because of its interesting index and the modules that were included such as Mobile and Advanced Digital Communications. 

"I would recommend the University of Sussex because it offered me a unique student experience and the opportunity to develop my skills.The Student Life Centre supports students with any personal and University related issues.
