The University of Sussex is world-renowned for the quality of its teaching and research (in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise over 90% of its research was judged as either world-leading or of international importance). It pioneered interdisciplinary research and teaching and is closely associated with radical thought and liberalism.
Sussex combines academic excellence with a unique location on the Southeast coast of the UK, on the edge of the exciting and cosmopolitan city of Brighton, and less than an hour by train to London.
Sussex has around 13,000 students of which approximately 30% come from outside the UK and from around 130 different countries. Our distinguished alumni, former staff and associates span the world.
Academic staff are often leaders in their fields of study and act as commentators, policy makers and influencers on relevant, real-world issues. Your study experience at Sussex will be directly informed by the cutting-edge research undertaken by faculty. We have counted three Nobel Prize winners, thirteen Fellows of the Royal Society, six Fellows of the British Academy and a winner of the prestigious Crafoord Prize amongst our staff.
