Student support

You are alloacted an academic advisor and will be invited to meet them when you start.

Your academic advisor will be listed on Sussex Direct.

Your Student Advisor (see under 'Student Life Centre' heading below) may recommend that you intermit. Intermission means that you cease study for a period, (normally a year) and return a year later to complete your Master's programme.

There is a deadline for applications for intermission. You cannot apply later than two weeks before the deadline date of your final assessment. For Master's students this is the deadline date of your main Project/Dissertation.

The Student Life Centre offers information and advice to all Sussex students.  Their aim is to help you to gain the best university experience you can, whatever your circumstances, by ensuring if you run into problems you get appropriate guidance and support.

The University acknowledges that as you go through the process of examination and assessment, there may be circumstances which affect your performance. Sussex has a procedure for managing how the impact of sudden and unforeseen circumstances can be taken into consideration by the Progress and Award Boards.

The Exceptional Circumstances claim procedure is not managed or determined by the Student Life Centre but they are able to provide information on how to complete the claim form

All Exceptional Circumstances claims are completed online via Sussex Direct, under the ‘Study’ tab. Medical or other evidence to support your claim must be uploaded electronically.

If you have a question or issue relating to your teaching, learning or wider student experience at Sussex, you can contact the student rep for your cohort.

If you are interested in becoming a PG student rep you can find more details on our 'Becoming a student rep' web page.
