International Student Support

The International Student Support team provides specialist advice and support to prospective and current Sussex students. We also run welcome activities and a programme of events throughout the year to enhance your student experience.

We offer advice and support on:

  • immigration and visas. The International Student Advisers offer a confidential specialist advice service, where we can answer your immigration questions and guide you through the process of applying for your visa
  • issues related to living in the UK
  • preparing to arrive at Sussex. We welcome you to Sussex and in September we run a bookable coach service from Heathrow airport to the campus

We also:

  • Co-organise the University's One World Week and One World Sussex initiatives, which celebrate global diversity at Sussex
  • we organise specific events for international students as part of the university's induction programme, as well as social events throughout the year
  • we organise a programme of day trips to various places across the country to enable you to make the most of your time in the UK.

'Like' us on Facebook and follow us on Twitter and Instagram to keep in touch and up-to date about information and events.

If you would like to find out what previous Sussex students from all over the world thought about their time here, or for advice about Sussex and the UK, visit the overseas alumni webpage.

Please take a look at the university's student induction pages  which have lots of information for all new students.
