The International Year One is an advanced one-year course, equivalent to the first year of an undergraduate degree. It will provide you with the necessary academic knowledge and study skills and boost your English language skills to the level required to succeed as a second-year undergraduate degree student at the University of Sussex.
Choose from one of the following subject routes:
- Business and Management
- Electrical and Electronic Engineering
- Finance and Accounting
- International Relations and International Development
- Media and Film Studies
Once you successfully complete the course and achieve the required grades, you can enter the second year of your chosen undergraduate degree at the University of Sussex.
The course is modular in structure. You'll study a combination of core and subject-specific modules, designed to focus on your studies and the academic areas most useful for your degree.
Your work will be assessed regularly throughout the course, to make sure you meet the standard required to progress to your chosen degree. Assessments include examinations, extended essays, presentations, seminar discussions and group projects.
