    Hi guys, my name is Jamila.

    I am a final-year student studying International Business with a professional placement, and I'm here to tell you a little bit about my time at Sussex.


    I chose Sussex because... honestly, the vibes were right.

    I looked at a lot of other unis, like coastal ones and Sussex was just the one that spoke to me the most.

    Especially the fact that it's (just) one campus as well was a really big factor.


    Starting at Sussex was... just a crazy experience. [laughs]

    I feel especially because it's just more than likely the first time that you've moved out and lived by yourself and you really have to... kind of create your own path when it comes to designing all your schedules and... getting your food shopping, getting your laundry (done) - all of that good stuff!

    And I think it's kind of scary as well, because normally you don't know anyone.

    But, I met so many amazing people and went to some brilliant parties, and it was just so much fun.

    I really think of that time of my life so fondly.


    Honestly, my favourite thing about Sussex is the people.

    They are just so willing to help at any point whether that be to do with your course like the Business School were absolutely amazing.

    They have been invaluable to me whilst I've been doing my degree.

    But even with Student Experience, when I was looking for a placement, the Careers and Employability Centre were amazing, the Student Centre... like, there were just so many resources and people that want to help you and I really, really appreciate that about Sussex.


    I am most looking forward to finishing my dissertation because the stress will be gone.

    But I also know I will feel really accomplished.

    I'm also looking forward to my graduation so much.

    I'm so ready to wear that cap and gown.

    And yeah, I'm just ready for what's coming next.

    I don't have a plan, but, I'm OK with that.


    Honestly, in all aspects of life, just go with your gut.

    Really just think... if I had to make a decision right this second, if someone said you need to make a decision right now, where would you choose?

    What would you do?

    And genuinely, that is normally the way to go, because that's kind of what I did.

    And... I've literally had the best time of my life at Sussex.
