Sussex University

The University of Sussex is a public research university situated in Falmer, near Brighton in Sussex.

In an effort to establish a university to serve Brighton, a public meeting was held in December 1911 at the Royal Pavilion in order to discover ways to fund the construction of a university; the project was halted by World War I, and the money raised was used instead for books for the Municipal Technical College. The idea was revived in the 1950s and, in June 1958, the government approved the corporation's scheme for a university at Brighton, to be the first of a new generation of what came to be known as plate glass universities.[5] The University was established as a company in 1959, with a Royal Charter being granted on 16 August 1961. The University's organization broke new ground in seeing the campus divided into Schools of Study, with students able to benefit from a multidisciplinary teaching environment. Sussex would emphasise cross-disciplinary activity, so that students would emerge from the university with a range of background or 'contextual' knowledge to complement their specialist 'core' skills in a particular subject area.  Sussex came to be identified with postwar social change, and developed a reputation for radicalism. In 1973, 500 students physically prevented United States government adviser Samuel P. Huntington from giving a speech on campus, due to his involvement in the Vietnam War. In an attempt to appeal to a modern audience, the university chose in 2004 to simplify its logo from the original coat of arms to the current "us" logo. The Vice-Chancellor of the University described the new visual identity as "the starting point for what will be a fresh look and feel for Sussex. It is based on the university's vision and values, themselves a statement of what it aspires to be: pioneering, creative, international, excellent, engaging and challenging.

The University of Sussex was ranked 62nd in Europe and 140th in the world by The Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2015/2016. The Academic Ranking of World Universities 2015 put the University of Sussex in the top 151–200 globally, while the university was ranked 187th in the world according to the QS World University Rankings 2015. Notably, the QS World University Rankings 2015 placed the University of Sussex number one in the world for development studies.  Nationally, the University of Sussex is ranked among the top 20 universities by The Academic Ranking of World Universities, The Guardian and The Times/Sunday Times.

The results of the Research Excellence Framework 2014 show that 98 per cent of research activity at Sussex is categorized as ‘world-leading’ (28 per cent), ‘internationally excellent’ (48 per cent) or ‘internationally recognized’ (22 per cent) in terms of originality, significance and rigour. Sussex History was the highest rated History submission in the UK for the quality of its research outputs. The Sussex English submission rose from 31st to 9th across the UK since the last research assessment exercise in 2008. 84 per cent of the University’s research impact in Psychology was rated as the top possible grade, 4*. Sussex Geography had the most 4* rated research impact of any Geography submission across the UK.
