Nestled at the edge of the South Downs and encircled by woodland, Sussex is the only university campus in England that is surrounded by a National Park, so you can walk straight out of the campus into acres of rolling green parkland. Although set in idyllic countryside, the University lies just minutes from cosmopolitan Brighton & Hove, and can be easily reached by road and rail. The University campus, combining award-winning architecture with green open spaces, resembles a large, self-contained village, ideal for the 15-20 age group.
