Preparing students for success in the world
The University of Sussex is a progressive, top-ranked university that prepares students for making a real difference in the world.
Sussex is a leading research university. No matter what their chosen subject, students come into contact with academics who are experts in their fields, working at the cutting-edge of research.
Students also have the opportunity learn from some of the best, award-winning teachers in the UK. Three Nobel Prize winners and one prestigious Crafoord Prize winner have taught at Sussex.
The University campus is surrounded by the beautiful South Downs National Park, just nine minutes by train from the vibrant city of Brighton.
The International Study Centre helps students build confidence, boost their English language skills, and it gives them the academic knowledge they need to succeed at Sussex, and beyond.
