UNIVERSITY OF SUSSEX
Are you looking for a university that encourages you to be yourself? One that has a tradition of challenging conventions?
Since 1961, Sussex has been the sort of university that is proud to speak out about the things that matter to us, standing up for what we believe in. Through this culture of experimentation, creativity and innovation, we aim to change lives and improve the world around us.
Teaching and learning
The University of Sussex has over 16,000 students, of which over a third are postgraduates. Creative thinking, pedagogic diversity, intellectual challenge and interdisciplinarity have always been fundamental to a Sussex education.
Our goal is to deliver teaching and learning programmes that are informed by current research, are attractive to students from all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, and which deliver skills for life.
From its foundation, Sussex has had an international perspective to its academic activities and its outlook. The University attracts staff and students to its campus from over 140 different countries across the world. Nearly a third of staff come from outside the UK.
Our research tackles major world issues, with leading areas of expertise such as climate change and development studies. The University has extensive links with many institutions worldwide, such as Peking University, National Taiwan University and the Harvard-Sussex programme.
Sussex has developed a reputation for innovation and inspiration, and attracts leading thinkers and researchers. We have over 2,100 staff, including around 1000 teaching and research staff, and over 300 research-only staff. We have counted three Nobel Prize winners, 12 Fellows of the British Academy and a winner of the prestigious Crafoord Prize on our faculty.
Innovative research and scholarship
Sussex is a leading research university, as reflected in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework (REF). Over 75% of Sussex research activity was rated as world leading or internationally excellent, confirming the University among the leading 40 research universities in the UK.
Sussex has one of the most beautiful campus locations in Britain. Situated in rolling parkland on the edge of Brighton, the campus combines award-winning architecture with green open spaces. The campus is surrounded by the South Downs National Park, but is just a few minutes away from the lively city of Brighton. The city is known for its vibrant and active culture, with plenty of independent shops, bars and cafés, an active nightlife, the biggest arts festival in England, and its famous beach. Our campus is just 9 minutes to the city centre, 30 minutes to Gatwick airport and 1 hour to London.
Business and the community
Sussex has a long tradition of engaging with business and the community, which continues today through activities such as the Sussex Innovation Centre, public lectures and service to the community. Our goal is to help businesses and organisations in the region develop higher staff skill levels through training, and to stimulate innovation through partnership with other institutions outside Sussex to benefit the wider society.
The Sussex Innovation Centre provides support for the creation and growth of technology- and knowledge-based companies in Sussex. The Centre is now a thriving business environment for nearly 80 high-growth companies. Since its creation over 160 companies have been based at the Centre; their cumulative revenue is now over £250 million and the companies currently employ many hundreds of people in the local area.
