Studying at the University of Sussex gives you the opportunity to change the world. Since its foundation in 1961, the University has been at the forefront of change – having pushed for development and demanded more, creating a better future for individuals and communities around the world.

Research at the University of Sussex makes a difference. Sussex's research is internationally recognised for drawing together leading academics from different disciplines – an approach that delivers the most powerful and meaningful results. 75% of the University’s research activity is considered ‘world leading’ or ‘internationally excellent’ (Research Excellence Framework 2014).

By studying at the University of Sussex you will learn from some of the best university teachers and researchers in the UK, who work at the forefront of their fields. Our teaching staff includes recognised Academicians and Fellows. In addition, three Nobel Prize winners and one prestigious Crafoord Prize winner have taught at Sussex.

The University of Sussex campus offers a unique combination of tranquillity and energy. We are surrounded by a beautiful national park, yet at the same time we are a short train journey from Brighton. Brighton has fantastic transport links, with easy access to major airports, so you'll easily be able to explore the rest of the UK and Europe.
