Meet the SAGE students

Meet Aly, Andre, and Jade, our SAGE students.  Get to know a bit about them below!


Hey readers! I’m Andre, a first year Undergraduate Geographer here at Sussex Uni. I previously did a foundation year in Social Sciences at Sussex so this is essentially my second time round at the first year of university. With this experience I will be feeding you with all the information, tips, do’s and don’ts of university life and the best way to make it through to summer all in one piece. I hope you enjoy what we have in store for you!



Hey there! I’m Aly, a first year undergraduate student studying marketing and management with the law pathway. I hope to deliver regular posts regarding different aspects of university life. This will include; how to cope with academic studies, what the best socials are and where to find them, and how to survive a year in halls.




Hey everybody! I’m Jade and I’m a first year undergraduate studying Psychology with Criminology. As a self-confessed procrastinator, who has had a terrible tendency in the past to let my work load pile up until it is an inconceivable black cloud of hopelessness, I hope to be able to offer you my top tips to staying on track and balancing uni work with your social life. I may also offer the occasional rant, such as about the differences between Harvard and APA referencing and join you through all the other highs and lows of everyday uni life. We’re all in the same boat, and if there is anything you want us to discuss in our blogs, don’t hesitate to get it touch!

Our previous SAGE students:

The first cohort of SAGE students Isabelle, Lucy, and Lenart have now moved on from university life, but you can still read all about their student experiences in the archives section of this blog. Eva has returned from her year abroad, and will be blogging occasionally, so keep an eye out for her posts!
