The School of Global Studies at Sussex aims to provide one of the UK's premier venues for understanding how the world is changing. The School offers a broad range of perspectives on global issues such as climate change, international migration, conflict and violence, infectious diseases and child and maternal health, international security, and global cultures and religions. It combines world-leading research by academic faculty with innovative teaching programmes that draw on our areas of research strength.

What makes ‘Global Studies’ at Sussex special? There are at least three reasons. First, we have internationally-focused research and teaching programmes that include a focus on global issues, and a wide range of opportunities to study abroad as part of your degree. Second, we have a diverse range of international students, whilst our faculty come from around the globe, including Europe, North America, India and China. Third, Sussex graduates have gone on to a wide range of international careers, in governments, international organisations, NGOs and businesses. We hope in this way to provide a springboard for students and researchers who want to play a part in shaping the world’s future.
