In the latest National Student Survey (NSS) for 2010, Sussex has risen up the rankings for the third year running. The new scores place Sussex equal 7th for student satisfaction among UK universities. Sussex ranks alongside Oxford and Cambridge and among leading research-intensive universities. We are third in the UK for teaching (just behind St Andrews and Oxford) and only students at Buckingham, Oxford and Cambridge are more satisfied with the quality of academic support they receive. The popularity of Sussex continues to be reflected in our undergraduate application figures, which continue to increase. These results reflect the commitment the University of Sussex has to providing students with the highest quality teaching and learning as well as overall student support.
In the School of Media, Film and Music we do even better, being ranked 6th for Media and Film in the 2010 NSS scores, with over 90% of students across the School rating our teaching highly. Students are taught by leading scholars and practitioners in an interdisciplinary environment that encourages students to think critically about culture and society. All of our courses offer students the chance to both analyse and produce film/video, photography, digital media, radio or music. We also provide students with a wide array of up to date video, photography and sound equipment as well as access to several editing suites, media labs, video production & photography studio. We have skilled technicians on hand to support students as they produce their work.
Not only do Media, Film and Music students learn from the wide array of courses on offer but they can also join student societies such as The Film Appreciation Society, The Sussex Alternative Media and Arts Collective, The Visual Culture Society, or The Symphony Orchestra. As one student summed up: ‘Great resources, great teaching staff, a great place to study!’
