2017 entry

1. Choose your course

We offer over 200 undergraduate courses from 46 subject areas.  

Mature students and students with disabilities are very welcome to apply. We also offer support to applicants who have recently left care.

Many of our departments also welcome students who wish to transfer from other universities.

2. What do I need to get in?

When you've decided on a course you'll need to check entry requirements. Our undergraduate prospectus details specific qualifications needed for each course.

If you're from the UK, the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man you should check typical A-level offers and their equivalents.

If you're an international student you need to check our guidance for overseas qualifications, as well as our English language requirements.

You may also need information on the UK's Point-Based Immigration System.

If you don't meet our entry requirements, you may wish to consider one of our Foundation Years

3. Visit us

The best way to find out if Sussex is the university for you is to visit us. We offer a number of ways for you to explore our campus, from Open Days to self-guided tours.

4. Applying

From summer 2016 you can begin to apply for our undergraduate courses.

You apply online via the UCAS Apply service. You can find the code for each course in our undergraduate prospectus.

The institution code name for Sussex is SUSX. Our institution code is S90.

The initial applications deadline is 15 January 2017.

If you are applying for medicine at the Brighton and Sussex Medical School, the deadline is 15 October 2016.

UCAS accepts late applications (until 30 June 2017) but some courses may be fully subscribed.

We may ask for some additional information to support your application. For some courses you will be invited to attend an interview or workshop.

5. Offers and Applicant Visit Days

Once we decide to make you an offer, we will send your notification through UCAS. Once you have all your offers back, you then need to decide which offer you will accept.

We will invite you to an Applicant Visit Day to help you make your decision.

6. Confirming your place

If you've achieved the required grades, UCAS will confirm your place when exam results are published. You may be asked to verify your qualifications.

You can choose to defer your entry for a year if you wish.

If your application is unsuccessful and you're not sure why, you can request feedback.

7. Clearing and Adjustment

Clearing matches students with remaining university places and begins in July.

Adjustment allows students who have done better than expected to explore their options and starts when A-level results are published in August.

We list details of the vacancies we have on our website from July for those with early results, and will preview A-level vacancies the day before A-level results are published.

Demand at this time is very high, so if you are interested in a place at Sussex, contact us as soon as you have your grades.

8. Welcome to Sussex
