About The Program

At the University of Sussex, mere minutes from one of the most famous seafronts in the world, you can take undergraduate physics courses that are hard to get at many UC campuses. Students from UC Irvine and UC Santa Barbara can earn a full year of physics credit. Participate in lab experiments, attend group workshops, and hone your problem-solving skills with students from other UC campuses. This calculus-based academic program delivers a firm foundation in physical concepts and principles, including kinematics, dynamics, fluids, elasticity, wave motion, sound, ideal gases, heat, and thermodynamics. On weekends, trek the green countryside of beautiful England. Explore the breathtaking beauty of Stonehenge, see a moated castle built for a knight, and stroll the white-chalk cliffs of the Seven Sisters.
