UGA Exchange, University of Sussex

The University of Sussex was the first of the new wave of UK universities founded in the 1960s, receiving its Royal Charter in August 1961. As we celebrate our 50th anniversary, Sussex has become a leading teaching and research institution. The University of Sussex has over 13,000 students, of which over a third are postgraduates. Creative thinking, pedagogic diversity, intellectual challenge and interdisciplinary have always been fundamental to a Sussex education. Our goal is to deliver teaching and learning programmes that are informed by current research, are attractive to students from all socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds, and which deliver skills for life.

Program Location

sussexSussex has one of the most beautiful campus locations in Britain. Situated in rolling parkland on the edge of Brighton, the campus combines award-winning architecture with green open spaces. The campus is surrounded by the South Downs National Park, but just a few minutes away from the lively city of Brighton and Hove.

Designed by Sir Basil Spence, the buildings that make up the heart of the campus were given listed building status in 1993. Falmer House is one of only two educational buildings in the UK to be Grade I listed in recognition of its exceptional interest.

Housing

Full-Year Housing Information
Spring (single-semester) Housing Information
Fall (single-semester) Housing Information


Full-year students will have access to on-campus housing at Sussex. However, single semester students may apply to in on-campus residences, depending on availability.  
As on-campus housing for semester students may be limited, Sussex provides resources for students to live in off-campus apartments, residences, and home-stays. 

Accommodation options from September 2017 - 2020
For autumn 2017, spring 2018, and autumn 2018: we can continue to offer housing provision through a range of options, via a study hotel in Hove with exclusive access for our students, our extensive Home stay network and we can also provide advice and support to find suitable housing in the local communities in Brighton, Hove and Lewes.  
We will shortly be updating our accommodation web pages with more information.  Please check the following web page for details in the meantime:  http://www.sussex.ac.uk/study/international-students/visiting-exchange-erasmus-students/accommodation/part-year-accommodation
 
Construction has started on the construction of the new on-campus student village, replacing our existing 592 bed-spaces in our East Slope residences with 2,117 bed-spaces. 
The development will open in phases, between 2018-2020.  Once open, Sussex will be one of the largest providers of University managed accommodation in the UK.  
 



Testimonial:
What are your words of advice to students considering this program?
I would suggest that those considering this program have an open mind. I would also suggest that they push themselves to really get out of their comfort zones. It is an entirely possible, especially in programs like this that you can go to a different country and just cling on to what's familiar the entire time but that really os disadvantageous to the experience as a whole. I would also suggest to be as social as you can be albeit joining clubs or even in class. The people you meet on an exchange define your experience. Also even in a country with a populace as diverse as The United States, I found myself learning so much about from the people I met. Their customs and their histories were absolutely fascinating. All in all, I would say to truly take in each day and enjoy it. These exchanges are very unique, even if one decides to travel after or has travelled before, studying abroad is unparalleled and definitely should be taken for granted.
