University of Sussex at SI-UK Nairobi
The University of Sussex was founded in 1961 and is located in Brighton on the south coast of England. There are currently around 18,000 students enrolled from over 120 countries and the University consistently performs well in the International Student Barometer, offering funded work placements as part of its student support and degree programmes. It is the only UK university located in a National Park.
The University of Sussex is ranked the 161st best university in the world by Times Higher Education, and has a number of subjects ranked in the global top 100, including business and economics, social sciences, psychology and law.
Research is a core strength of Sussex, with Nobel Prize winners and fellows of the Royal Society and British Academy among its staff. The University has just finished a major £100 million redevelopment of the main campus, adding more facilities to fit the growing student population. Recent investment has further strengthened Sussex’s research profile, including the opening of institutes for the study of consciousness science, corruption and Middle East studies. Sussex is ranked 4th in the UK for research influence.
Described by Lonely Planet as 'One of England's Gems', Brighton is lively and cosmopolitan with a friendly, relaxed atmosphere. One of the UK’s most popular seaside towns, it is known as ‘London by the Sea’ for its strong nightlife and social scene. An historic association with the arts means that Brighton has plentiful galleries, theatres and cinemas, as well as more restaurants per resident than anywhere outside London. Each year the city hosts the Brighton festival (England’s largest arts festival), which brings together film, theatre, dance, comedy, literature, music, street performances and art.
The University is also within easy reach of London and major international airports at Gatwick and Heathrow.
