As a research-intensive university, Sussex has a dynamic and thriving research agenda. Our strengths range across the arts, social sciences, science and medicine, with excellence demonstrated both within individual subjects and across thematic areas. Our heritage of interdisciplinary working, across traditional subject boundaries, places us in an ideal position to address real-world research challenges, working together in teams drawn from across the University. We have six interdisciplinary research themes which reflect these innovative interdisciplinary traditions.
In the 2008 assessment of the standards of research in UK universities, the Research Assessment Exercise (RAE), over 90 per cent of Sussex research activity was rated as world-leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised, confirming Sussex is among the leading 30 research universities in the UK.
We have counted three Nobel Prize winners, 14 Fellows of the Royal Society, six Fellows of the British Academy and a winner of the prestigious Crafoord Prize on our faculty.
At Sussex we recognise the importance of supporting research through collaboration. We have important academic partnerships with, among others, American Express and the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew.
Our campus boasts such cutting-edge facilities as the Genome Damage and Stability Centre; the state-of-the-art medical imaging equipment at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School (BSMS); and the University's Library, home to to remarkable resources such as the Mass Observation Archive.
