International Summer School

Fees and Scholarships


The tuition fee for the full eight-week International Summer School is £2,820; or £1,520 for one 15-credit, four-week module. In addition, some modules have a lab fee or a field trip fee (see module descriptions). Housing is £156/week (more information about housing). The £150 application fee must be made when you accept your offer of a place on the International Summer School. Due to the administration costs necessary for short intensive courses the application fee is non-refundable. Payment in full (minus the application fee of £150), including rent, is required by 15 June 2016. You must submit all fees by the required date in order to complete registration. Sussex does not offer facilities for deferred payment of fees.


The University of Sussex will be extending a limited number of scholarships for participation in the International Summer School 2017. These come in the form of fee waivers and accommodation costs to students from developing countries, who have high potential for future leadership in their field of study or career. For 2017 the scholarship will offer a 100 per cent reduction in tuition fees in one of the two four-week sessions of the Summer School, to the value of £1,558, plus accommodation for 4 weeks, to the value of £632. The total value of the scholarship is up to £2,190. To apply you must be a national and resident of a developing country (as classified by the UN/World Bank), and must meet the general entrance and English language requirements for the International Summer School. Applications for scholarships are due to open on 1 December 2016 and will close on 15 February 2017.
