About the course While studying politics at Sussex, you will learn about ideas, issues and institutions. You’ll analyse how people defend their interests and how those in power make policy, but are also held to account for their decisions. Working with our UK and international experts, you will study UK politics and compare it with politics in other countries. Brighton is one of the UK’s most politically diverse cities. Our Politics Society welcomes figures from across the political spectrum to talk to you, including current UK politicians such as Caroline Lucas. There’s no substitute for visiting a country and experiencing first-hand how it operates politically. Our four-day Berlin trip allows you to meet politicians in the German Bundestag and discuss politics with German students. You can also apply for our MP internship scheme and gain real-world experience of politics. About Sussex Sussex graduates change the world. Our students become the leaders of the future, making discoveries, improving lives and changing things for the better. Study with us to join a welcoming and inspiring community of staff and students from more than 140 countries. Location We shape the world from a fantastic campus on the UK’s beautiful south coast. We are the only UK university surrounded by a national park, so you can step off campus to explore the hills and woodlands of the South Downs. The vibrant, colourful and creative seaside city of Brighton & Hove is just nine minutes away. With Brighton voted the happiest city in England for students, (Student Living Survey, Sodexo, 2018) there can be few better places to study.
