About The Program

Minutes from the sparkling seafront, Sussex is quintessentially English, with spectacular castles, greenery, and attractions fit for royals. Whatever your major, this program delivers a full English university experience. Academic modules span a range of disciplines with a flexible approach that's academically inspiring and gives you a distinctly different study abroad experience. In class with students from around the world, you’ll have an enriching cultural experience as you earn UC credit. Courses span a range of disciplines with classes small enough for personalized attention. Whatever the subject, from creative writing to medical practice, you’ll work with small student groups. Outside of class, explore the local area with free Friday excursions. See the monoliths of Stonehenge and Harry Potter Studios. On weekends, tour a moated castle built for an English knight and hike the white-chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters. Or, get your Shakespeare on in London's theater district, just an hour away.
