Development and Alumni Relations

The University of Sussex Hong Kong Foundation

The University of Sussex has an international reputation as a leading research university with an interdisciplinary approach to teaching. Our international standing and outlook facilitate world-class research, the recruitment of the highest quality students and faculty, and the preparation of our graduates to become global citizens and make a difference in the world. For these reasons, we attract many students from Hong Kong and South East Asia and have established formal institutional partnerships with a number of universities in the region, such as the Chinese University of Hong Kong, the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Shenzhen, and the Hong Kong University of Science and Technology.

We are incredibly grateful to our Hong Kong-based alumni for their much-valued support which really does have a meaningful impact and helps us to change lives.
