Online Masters discount

Continue your studies with 20% discount for alumni on our online Masters courses.

We like to encourage our alumni to consider further study at Sussex and now with our online Masters courses, you don’t have to return to campus to continue learning with us. We have a growing number of online courses, and we are proud to offer alumni a 20% reduction in tuition fees for these.

Study online

Our online courses give you the opportunity to gain a Masters from Sussex and experience the same academic rigour and teaching, recognised world-wide for its excellence, from anywhere in the world. They are designed to be of real benefit to today's workplace by focusing on real-world case studies that provide you with practical new skills for your career. You’ll also be able to make new international connections by working collaboratively on projects with fellow students around the world.

Built-in flexibility

There are six entry points a year which means you can start your course at a time that suits you. And, if you want to take a break from your studies at any time, you can simply ‘step-off’ the course and re-join once at the next entry point to start your studies again. You have up to four years to complete your course.

Extensive student support

Online students benefit from our dedicated Student Success Team who’ll support you throughout your studies. In addition, you’ll have access to the university’s wider student support services including specialist IT, Library and study skills support, careers advice, and our Health, Wellbeing and Counselling services.


Course fees can be paid on a modular basis to spread out payments, or as a single fee at the start of the course. You’ll find more details on the fees and funding pages.


To be eligible you will need to have successfully completed an undergraduate/ masters degree or PhD from the University of Sussex (applies to any year of graduation). Please see our terms and conditions for more details.
