Compulsory field trip fees
Some courses include a compulsory requirement for you to take part in field trips (eg art history, geography). Fourth-year medical students are encouraged to undertake their eight-week elective placement abroad. Students normally pay the additional costs of such trips.
On successful completion of your studies, you will be entitled to attend a University graduation ceremony, which takes place in Brighton’s prestigious and historic Dome Theatre. The University does not charge students for graduation, but note that you will be expected to hire a graduation gown from a specialist company and this will have a cost, of which you will be advised at the time. In addition, we do charge guests attending the ceremony in order to help recover the costs associated with staging a high-quality event.
Students’ Union membership
There is no additional fee for membership of the University of Sussex Students’ Union.
