Northfield campus university of sussex
The Centre closed in the summer of 2007: withdrawal of funding and the cost of renovating the building were given as the key reasons.
Following an extensive refurbishment, the centre will reopen as the Attenborough Centre for the Creative Arts (ACCA).
It is situated next to the Sussex Downs, which influenced Sir Basil Spence's design of the campus.
The University of Sussex began as an idea for the construction of a university to serve Brighton.
In the 2011 national student survey rankings, more than 90% of Sussex students were satisfied or very satisfied with the teaching on their course, putting Sussex in the top 10 universities across the UK for teaching satisfaction.
Fees£9,000 for full-time undergraduates in 2013-14. Scholarships The new First-Generation scholars scheme will support students whose parents haven’t been to university, as well as those from low-income families.
The idea was revived in the 1950s and, in June 1958, the government approved the corporation's scheme for a university at Brighton, the first of a new generation of what came to be known as plate glass universities.
The University's organisation broke new ground in seeing the campus divided into Schools of Study, with students able to benefit from a multidisciplinary teaching environment.
Sir Basil Spence's designs were appreciated in the architecture community, with many of the buildings on the University's campus winning awards.
