Postgraduate StudyShaping the world

Sussex is a top UK university whose research and teaching really does shape the world we live in. In the words of our first Vice-Chancellor, John Fulton, we help our students to ‘make the future.’

We offer a range of postgraduate courses. Fourteen of these are based wholly in Global Studies and a further six are taught in partnership with other schools and units on campus.
