University of Sussex

Brighton | South East England

Diverse local nightlife Creative Political City Campus By the sea

Ucas code: S90

Sussex is a small campus uni set in the beautiful South Downs, right on the doorstep of the vibrant seaside resort of Brighton. You can study on the beach or just soak up the sun on campus, but hold on to your ice-cream because the seagulls are infamously cheeky! Did you know our pirate society was recently listed as one of the 10 weirdest societies in the country?

League table rankings

Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
