The Student Life Centre (SLC) and the Student Support Unit (SSU) are located on the Ground floor of Bramber House.
The Student Life Centre plays a key role in ensuring that Sussex is a supportive and empowering environment for students. The SLC provides information, guidance, referrals and resources to enhance student transition to and progress through the University.
The Student Support Unit is a team of specialist advisors who support students on the autistic spectrum and those with long-term conditions such as Specific Learning Difficulties (e.g. AD(H)D, dyslexia, dyspraxia) and mental-health issues.
Drop-ins for sexual health (X-card and STI testing), counselling, LGBTQ welfare, legal highs, etc. will continue at their usual times in the new location at Bramber House. The Student Wellbeing service will move to the Health Centre annexe next to the Pharmacy.
First Generation Scholar's Scheme - information for 2015/2016 Awardees
Notifications of eligibility for the First Generation Scholar's Scheme 2015/2016 are currently being issued. Please see here for full details of the award.
New foundation/first year students - Your notification will not mention the £2000 rent/fee waiver, however if you are eligible for the cash award, you will also receive this waiver. This will be allocated to your rent unless you are living in private accommodation. £2000 will be deducted from your tuition fees if this is the case.
All Students - A number of notification letters have been sent in error which suggest awards have been cancelled or a reassessment made based on a change of circumstances. If you have received this letter, please check whether the total amount at the bottom of the letter still shows £1000. If so, you will continue to receive this amount of money as detailed on your original letter.
If you are expecting to receive the award and remain unsure as to why you have not yet received notification, please see our troubleshooting guide or contact The Student Funding Team at email@example.com or 01273 872994.
If you want to talk through progress issues or your plans and hopes for next year and the support you need, please book an appointment with one of Student Advisers. You can book an appointment through Sussex Direct or call in and we will book an appointment for you.
