University of Sussex - Description

The University of Sussex is world-renowned for the quality of its teaching and research (in the most recent Research Assessment Exercise over 90% of its research was judged as either world-leading or of international importance). It pioneered interdisciplinary research and teaching and is closely associated with radical thought and liberalism. Sussex combines academic excellence with a unique location on the Southeast coast of the UK, on the edge of the exciting and cosmopolitan city of Brighton, and less than an hour by train to London. Sussex has around 13,000 students of which approximately 30% come from outside the UK and from around 130 different countries. Our distinguished alumni, former staff and associates span the world. Academic staff are often leaders in their fields of study and act as commentators, policy makers and influencers on relevant, real-world issues. Your study experience at Sussex will be directly informed by the cutting-edge research undertaken by faculty. We have counted three Nobel Prize winners, thirteen Fellows of the Royal Society, six Fellows of the British Academy and a winner of the prestigious Crafoord Prize amongst our staff.

Description of University of Sussex

University of Sussex is a leading UK research intensive university set in beautiful downland on the edge of Brighton, with over 13,000 students and 2,500 staff from 100 different countries. Founded in 1961, the University recently celebrated its 50th anniversary. International Sussex From its foundation, Sussex has had an international perspective to its academic activities and its outlook. The University attracts staff and students to its campus from over 120 different countries across the world. Nearly a third of staff come from outside the UK. Our research tackles major world issues, with leading areas of expertise such as climate change and development studies. The University has extensive links with many institutions worldwide, such as Peking University, National Taiwan University and the Harvard-Sussex programme. Innovative research and scholarship Sussex is a leading research university, as reflected in the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise. Over 90 per cent of Sussex research activity was rated as world leading, internationally excellent or internationally recognised, confirming the University among the leading 30 research universities in the UK, on a simple average across all scores. 18 subjects rank in the top 20 for research in the UK, across the arts, sciences and social sciences, with American studies ranked number 1 in the UK, Politics number 2, and Art history number 3. Teaching and learning The University of Sussex has over 13,000 students, of which over a third are postgraduates. Creative thinking, pedagogic diversity, intellectual challenge and interdisciplinarity 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. Our staff Sussex has developed a reputation for innovation and inspiration, and attracts leading thinkers and researchers. We have over 2,100 staff, including around 540 teaching and research staff, and 270 research-only staff. We have counted three Nobel Prize winners, 13 Fellows of the Royal Society, six Fellows of the British Academy and a winner of the prestigious Crafoord Prize on our faculty. Campus life Sussex 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. Business and the community Sussex has a long tradition of engaging with business and the community, which continues today through activities such as the Sussex Innovation Centre, public lectures and service to the community. Our goal is to help businesses and organisations in the region develop higher staff skill levels through training, and to stimulate innovation through partnership with other institutions outside Sussex to benefit the wider society. The Sussex Innovation Centre provides support for the creation and growth of technology- and knowledge-based companies in Sussex. The Centre is now a thriving business environment for nearly 80 high-growth companies. Since its creation over 160 companies have been based at the Centre; their cumulative revenue is now over £250 million and the companies currently employ many hundreds of people in the local area
