I chose Sussex because of its reputation, quality of education and location.  I’ve found Brighton open and multicultural and have loved my university years in this city

At Sussex, you will join a community of students and staff from across the world – our students come from over 100 different countries.  There are over 500 undergraduate and postgraduate courses on offer at the University, taught by world-leading academics with a huge range of expertise.


Our campus in the only one in the UK located in a national park, and it is just nine minutes from the central buzz of vibrant Brighton on the train.

There are around 40 Korean students at the University of Sussex, studying a wide range of subjects like International Relations, Economics, Criminology and Pharmacy.  We have welcomed Korean students to our campus for many years, and have partnerships with a number of Korean universities such as Korea University and Seoul National University, so many Sussex students have spent time studying in Korea.

The city of Brighton is vibrant and diverse, and the perfect place to be a student.  There are shops, cafes and bars to suit every taste, as well as a busy sporting and arts calendar.  Brighton is one of the top 10 city beach destinations in the world (according to the Lonely Planet) and the seafront is a great place to spend lazy summer afternoons in the sun or enjoy the wild winds of a British winter.
