Study Abroad for Sussex Students

There is an opportunity for First Generation Scholars to participate in a Summer School abroad in South East Asia.

The scheme is open to 1st and 2nd year FGS students (not final year) who are interested in participating in these summer schools  Please click in the institution's name for more information about the programmes they offer.

The process can be competitive and you will need to complete an application in order to be selected to study at these institutions for the summer. Successful students will receive a scholarship to help them with flights and other living expenses. Sussex will cover tuition, registration, accommodation and other fees at the other University(s), so students do not need to pay for these.
