University of Sussex

The Fulbright University of Sussex Award covers the first year of any master's or doctoral degree programme offered by the university.

The University of Sussex was the first of the new wave of UK universities founded in the 1960s. Sussex has become a leading teaching and research institution.

Sussex is a research intensive university, considered to be among the leading 20 research universities in the UK. Sussex’s Science Policy Research unit (SPRU) was ranked by the journal ‘Research Policy’ second only to Harvard University in terms of its research impact in innovation studies.

Sussex emphasises interdisciplinary teaching and research and has particular strengths in:

  • Humanities (American Studies, English Literature, History)
  • Social Sciences & Cultural Studies (Business and Management Studies, Development Studies, Education, International Relations, Law, Media Studies)
  • Life Sciences (Biological Sciences, Chemistry, Psychology)
  • Science & Technology (Computing Sciences, Engineering & Information Technology, Science & Technology Policy)

Grant amount

  • Full tuition waiver

This is intended as a contribution towards general maintenance costs towards the first year in the UK.

In the UK, master's degrees are typically one-year programmes (full-time) and PhDs are three-year programmes (full-time).
