University of Sussex

We are a research-intensive campus university with an excellent international reputation, located within the vibrant seaside city of Brighton & Hove. We welcome spirited students who want to study in a creative and intellectually-challenging environment.

A uniquely Sussex education

We offer over 200 postgraduate courses designed to enable you to make a positive difference in the world.

From American Studies to Robotics, Applied Linguistics to International Management, Philosophy to Human Rights, we have stimulating courses – and world-respected academics – across the sciences, social sciences, arts and humanities.

We were ranked 1st in the world for Development Studies for the third consecutive year in the QS World University Rankings by Subject 2019.

Whatever you study, you’ll be encouraged to stretch yourself intellectually, broaden your horizons and challenge the status quo.

Diverse and welcoming community

Our beautiful campus is home to a friendly multicultural community of students from over 100 countries. It has everything you need for day-to-day life, including a bank, post office, GP surgery, dentist, cafés, restaurants, and a weekly food market.

Ground-breaking research with real-world impact

Our research feeds empirical knowledge into the great questions of our age, impacting policy and practice for businesses, NGOs and governments. More than 75% of our research activity is categorised as world-leading or internationally excellent (REF 2014).

Where city, countryside and coast meet

We shape the world from a fantastic location that combines both tranquillity and vitality. Surrounded by a national park, our campus is just nine minutes by train from Brighton, the famously cosmopolitan city by the sea.

With its eclectic mix of artists, innovators, activists and beach-goers, there’s always something interesting to see or do. And if you want to go further afield, the rolling hills of the South Downs are right on our doorstep.

Brighton is very well connected to the rest of the UK, mainland Europe and the rest of the world;  central London is only an hour away and you can be at Gatwick Airport in just 30 minutes.
