How to apply?

Welcome to the University of Sussex International Summer School application pages.  

Once you have submitted your application we will confirm receipt and contact you within two weeks with the outcome of your application. (If coming from a partner institution, we will contact your home university's study abroad office as we cannot process your application until they approve 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 £200 application fee payment (this is later deducted from the tuition fee and is non-refundable).

The deadline for applications is 2 April 2019. This is when we will be deciding which modules have recruited enough students to run so it is vital that you apply before this date; some modules may not recruit enough students to run and these will be cancelled accordingly. Late applications can be submitted via our online system and may be considered, but we cannot guarantee course places after the deadline.

Once you have received confirmation of your acceptance onto your module, you will be emailed instructions on how to complete our online registration. This will open via Sussex Direct on 28 May 2019 and requires you to confirm personal details, check your module selections, pay any outstanding fees. Please click here  for more details on how to register.

Applicants for Physics modules

If you are unsure about whether or not you are ready to take the Introductory Physics courses, we recommend that you attempt our Physics Diagnostic Test. 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. If you are currently at university, you may also want to speak to your local study abroad advisor. 

NB: This is an intensive academic course. For a 15 credit course taken over 4 weeks students need to do about 100 hours of self-study over and above the scheduled 48 contact hours. This means that you should be working for about 25 hours per week in addition to attending classes. You need to bear this in mind when planning trips and travel outside class.
