The University of Sussex
The University of Sussex is a leading teaching and research institution, as reflected in the 2001 national Research Assessment Exercise. All subjects at Sussex were rated as either grade 4 or 5, recognizing research of national and international standards respectively. Over 90% of staff are researching at this high level, the majority in areas of international excellence.
Sussex has an international reputation for its innovative styles of teaching and for the quality and range of its research work. With over 2,500 international students from 120 countries, and teaching staff from 50 nations, Sussex has a truly international environment.
The commitment to interdisciplinary learning, whereby students are required to broaden their academic horizons by studying topics other than those directly allied to their major subject, remains strong.
Reinforcing this approach, the University is organized into Schools of Study and Graduate Research Centers, rather than more traditional faculties or departments, promoting the cross fertilization of knowledge between subjects. Over 250 undergraduate and 200 taught postgraduate courses are now offered.
