Online postgraduate study at Sussex. More knowledge, more change.

New ways to learn, new ways to make change

Founded in 1961, the University of Sussex is a top-25* UK university whose students have always believed that learning can change not only their own lives but the world.

To empower more students to change things in new ways, we are launching study online, a worldwide digital Masters programme designed for students who want to advance their knowledge and careers.

With a flexible carousel model, students can start modules every two months, and pause whenever they need to.

With online accessibility firmly in mind, our courses are built for students of all physical and cognitive abilities in all geographies; students who will benefit from virtual and global working environments that will enrich their future careers.

With world-class teaching, students work with academics and practitioners who are developing new ways of thinking, offering a distinctly Sussex style of learning.

And with a human experience that replaces the impersonal side of digital learning, our online courses bring together a global network of students through peer-to-peer learning and discussion groups.

Beginning with three courses and expanding to many more, our online masters are here for students everywhere who want to make their own kind of change.
