About University of Sussex

Formed in the 1960s, the University of Sussex is set close to Brighton in south England. It is a leading research institution of higher education. Considered to maintain one of the most attractive campuses in England, it was the first of the new wave of United Kingdom universities which earned its Royal Charter in the year 1961.

The University of Sussex has one of the most beautiful campus locations in the UK. Situated in rolling parkland on the edge of Brighton, the campus combines award-winning architecture with green open spaces. Designed by Sir Basil Spence, the buildings that make up the heart of the campus were given listed building status in 1993. In addition to this, Falmer House is one of only two educational buildings in the UK to be Grade I-listed in recognition of its exceptional interest.

The university maintains 12 schools and research groups. It provides more than 500 undergraduate, postgraduate and PHD programs.
