About the University of Sussex

The University of Sussex in Brighton is one of England’s leading teaching and research universities. Founded in the 1960’s it is a “new” university characterized by innovative approaches to learning. Studies at Sussex are interdisciplinary in focus, encouraging students to explore their academic interests from the perspective of more than one subject. There are over 2,300 international students and faculty from 40 nations. The campus borders Sussex Downs, an area of rolling hills, farms, villages and vineyards, a popular landscape for students who like to bike or hike! 

Brighton (pop. 165,000), known as “London-by-the-Sea”, is less than one hour from London. It is a vibrant community offering café culture, beaches, and a relaxed pace of life, with a student population from three major universities in Brighton.
