Welcome to the University of Sussex International Summer School application pages.
While our normal application deadline is 1 April 2013, we will continue to accept applications subject to course availability. Once you have submitted your application we will confirm receipt and within two weeks contact you with the outcome of your application. (If coming from a partner university, we cannot process your application until your home university approves your participation in this programme. Please speak to your local study abroad advisor if in doubt.) You will then be asked to accept an offer of a place with the ISS and to make your £150 application fee payment (this is later deducted from the tuition fee and is non-refundable).
Please refer to the Terms and Conditions before submitting your application.
Physics applicants - Courses now full for 2013!
Both Introductory Physics courses are now full. If you would like to be placed on a wait list or have any questions about these courses, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
If you are unsure about whether or not you are ready to take the Introductory Physics courses, we recommend that you attempt the Diagnostic test for ISS physics applicants [PDF 45.17KB]. These are intensive courses, requiring good mathematical skills, including algebra and trigonometry and a knowledge of vectors and of differential calculus. Try solving these problems to check that your mathematics meets the requirements for this course. The problems require no knowledge of Physics, though they are typical of mathematical manipulations used in solving Physics problems. You can check your Diagnostic test solutions [PDF 43.69KB] after attempting the problems. If you are currently at university, you may also want to speak to your local study abroad advisor.
The University of Sussex offers a limited number of scholarships for participation in the International Summer School 2013 for students from developing countries. Students will not be considered for a scholarship until the online application process has been completed in full. The application deadline for scholarships is 1 April 2013.
