University of Sussex

Political Creative Diverse local nightlife City Campus By the sea

Ucas code: S90

The University of Sussex has challenged convention since its foundation in 1961. From the campus’ modernist architecture on the edge of the beautiful South Downs national park, to our progressive academics and creative professional services staff, to the inspiring students who choose to learn and live here, to the very tone of the institution and the nature of its conversations, through to the expressions of radicalism, critical thinking and, at times, dissent. Sussex students receive a transformative, high-quality education and develop the knowledge and skills to be critical thinkers, entrepreneurs, commentators, citizens and activists.
