One of the world's top 100 universities: In its 2011 World University Rankings, the Times Higher Education placed Sussex 99th globally, and 12th in the UK. Our international reputation attracts teachers and researchers at the forefront of their fields, and we’ve counted Nobel Prize winners and fellows of the Royal Society and British Academy among our staff. In the UK's most recent Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), 18 of our departments were ranked in the UK's top 20, with over 90 per cent of research activity rated as 'world-leading', 'internationally excellent' or 'internationally recognised'.

The 2011 National Student Survey results placed Sussex in the UK's top 10 for teaching satisfaction with over 90% of Sussex students happy with the teaching at the University. On overall satisfaction, the University as a whole scored 89%, putting it in the top 20 universities in the UK and among the very best institutions in London and the south-east.

Green campus, just an hour from central London: Our beautiful parkland campus is a safe and convenient place to study, yet has fast, frequent rail links to London and the UK’s largest airports. It’s also the perfect base for exploring the historic towns and cities on England’s beautiful south coast. The setting means you can enjoy the best of both worlds – peace and tranquillity while you study, but with the buzz of Brighton and London within easy reach.

Brighton, the UK's most exciting seaside city: We’re just minutes from the centre of Brighton — one of the most lively and cosmopolitan cities in England. The city has a superb beach, outstanding choice of restaurants, cafes and bars and every year hosts England’s largest arts festival.

Best ‘Place to be': In the International Student Barometer surveys of university students, our international students have consistently voted us one of the best 'Places to be' in England - a tribute to the quality of our student experience. Our students rated particularly highly our expert lecturers, transport links, safe environment and helpful international office.
