School of Global Studies

Study abroad

Studying abroad as part of your undergraduate degree is an exciting way to develop a global perspective. The experiences, knowledge and skills gained from living and studying in a different culture are invaluable. At Sussex we actively encourage our students to study abroad and provide a range of opportunities.

Where can I go?

The University offers study abroad opportunities at more than 180 universities and colleges worldwide. From this wide range, the School particularly recommends study at one of about 40 universities that deliver teaching we know from experience will complement your studies at Sussex. See where our students have studied using the interactive map above.

However, you can also look for other places to study: so long as we have an agreement with the overseas university, and they teach your subject, you should be able to go. We are also actively developing new links in Africa and the Middle East.

Who can advise me?

The Study Abroad office can provide detailed guidance on credits, so you make sure you study the right amount.  Your academic advisor should also be able to help you weigh up your options.
