Sussex is home to a diverse, lively international community and we welcome students from over 120 countries studying here. Our courses are focused on global issues and the international community.

Admissions

Undergraduate study

We accept a wide range of qualifications for entry to undergraduate degrees:

  • If you are at an international school and taking either A-levels or the International Baccalaureate Diploma (IB), you should apply for entry to the first year.
  • If your qualifications do not meet our normal admissions requirements for the first year of an undergraduate degree, you may need to do an International Foundation Year. We also recognise Foundation courses from some other universities and colleges.

If you are not sure if you meet the entry requirements for undergraduate study, email us, clearly stating:

  • your country
  • the name of your school or college
  • the name of the qualification you are taking / have taken
  • your grade / marks (if appropriate), and
  • the degree at Sussex you would like to apply for.

Postgraduate study

We recognise qualifications from many countries for entry to postgraduate study.

  • For postgraduate taught degrees, you will normally need a qualification equivalent to a UK Bachelor degree (2:1 or 2:2).
  • For the Doctoral School, you will normally need a qualification equivalent to a UK Masters degree in a relevant discipline. You will also need to submit a research proposal.
  • If your qualifications do not meet our normal admissions requirements for a taught postgraduate degree, you may need to do a Pre-Masters. We also recognise Pre-Masters courses from some other universities and colleges.

Work experience is not required for most postgraduate degrees, but may be useful and can be taken into account. We will also review your personal statement carefully alongside academic qualifications when considering an application.

If you are not sure if you meet the entry requirements for postgraduate study, email us, clearly stating:

  • your country
  • the name of your university or college
  • the name of the qualification you are taking / have taken
  • your grade / marks (if appropriate) and
  • the degree at Sussex you would like to apply for.
