Program Overview

What the University of Sussex says about their program:
"Overview
The International Year One is an intensive, three-term programme of academic subjects, study skills and English language training that is designed for international students. The course is equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree.


We have integrated a new careers element into the course that is designed to help students develop the employability skills they need to stand out in the competitive graduate job market.


Once you complete the programme and achieve the required grades, you can enter the second year of your chosen undergraduate degree at the University."

Admissions Requirements

We will guide you through the application procedure; please see the details below.

If your first language is not English, you will need to demonstrate that you meet the University's English language requirements for the degree you have applied for. You can do this in a number of ways:

  • Take an English language proficiency test, such as IELTS (International English Language Testing System)
  • Provide evidence of other English qualifications that confirm your language level
  • Provide evidence that you meet one of our English language exemptions, or successfully pass the Sussex Centre for Language Studies pre-sessional English course.
  • If you have not taken an English language test yet, or do not have a current valid test score, you can still apply for courses, but any offer you receive will normally be conditional on meeting our language requirement.
