Physics Summer School at the University of Sussex
- Video transcript
Hannah Espey: I decided to study physics abroad here at the University of Sussex because we can get the full year’s worth of learning in physics, completely immersed without worrying about other classes.
Ramneet Pannu: The University of Sussex has a great physics programme and I was really excited to learn in a place that has such renowned professors and research going on.
Alex Baskoro: It’s really hard to find the time to study abroad and be able to travel to this programme was ideal for me because I was able to do physics in eight weeks.
Sandeep Kaur: Doing physics in eight weeks is really challenging but the ATs and professors here have been really supportive and it really helps you develop your own study strategies to succeed. In the labs you learn a lot of practical skills and you get to use a lot of cool equipment as well, and when I was travelling abroad during my breaks, you look around and you just see physics everywhere.
Esmerelda Garcia-Orosco: Our classes are really small so it’s easier to get more one-on-one attention and I don’t get as nervous when I ask a question because there’s not four hundred people in a class.
Alex: I really enjoy this campus, it’s just very beautiful out here and I’ve been going on runs and hikes.
Ramneet: I’ve never had my own bathroom before, so I love my en-suite. I love living in the flat style accommodation. My flatmates are amazing and it gives me a lot of privacy being in my own room.
Sandeep: What’s fantastic about being at Sussex is that you’re literally at a prime location. You’re super close to the pier and you’re less than an hour train ride away from London.
Katrina Joiner: The University of Sussex offers a lot of opportunities for trips and travel, so it’s really cool that they have it organised for you already. You’re travelling with a group, you’re not going to get lost.
Sandeep: I just came back from a trip to Spain and the Netherlands.
Hannah: I’ve been to Amsterdam and Barcelona.
Philmon Lei: I’ve been to France for three days, and I went to Iceland for two days.
Katrina: I would definitely recommend the Physics programme here. It is difficult, it is fast-paced, but in the end it will be worth it if you just study for the short amount of time then you can adventure, travel and do whatever you want later on.
Esmerelda: Sussex is very quiet. There are cows outside my window. It’s very cute and I just love it.
Our Physics Undergraduate Summer School teaches two modules. A module is a self-contained, credit-bearing unit of study. You will have a set of learning outcomes and an assessment at the end.
Each module carries 15 credits and lasts for four weeks (one session). You take one module per session.
