If you are ready to apply to study online with the University of Sussex you need to contact our study online Admissions Team who will send you a personalised link to our Applications Portal. You can do this by calling them on +44 (0) 1273 019311 or sending them an email to studyonlineadmissions@sussex.ac.uk

Once you have your personalised link, follow the steps below to complete your application.

Stage 1 – create an account

When you are ready to apply, contact the Study Online Admissions Team on +44 (0) 1273 019311 or send an email to studyonlineadmissions@sussex.ac.uk.

We will then send you a link to create an account for our applications portal.

Stage 2 – complete the application form

Once you have created an account, you will receive an email with a link to the application form.

To complete your application you need to:

  • select the intake you would like to join
  • fill in your personal and contact details
  • upload all required documents
  • complete your personal statement.

You can save and return to your application at any time before submitting it.

Stage 3 – submit your application

When you are happy with your application, press submit and it will be sent for formal review.

If we require any further information or documents from you will contact you to request these.

Stage 4 – decision

We aim to assess all standard applications and make a decision on them within 24 hours (Monday to Friday).

If you are a non-standard applicant (e.g. you do not meet the entry requirements, or you have professional experience rather than academic qualifications), it may take us a little longer to review your application and make a decision.

Once a decision has been made, the outcome will be uploaded to your application portal and we’ll contact you regarding the next steps.

Stage 5 – confirm your place

If your application is successful you’ll need to accept your offer in your portal account. You will then be sent a link to our online shop where you will pay your deposit, the fee for the first module of the course.
