The University of Sussex has featured in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2018, ranking in the top 50 for both Social Sciences and Business & Economics.

Both subjects have risen in the rankings since last year, with Social Sciences reaching 39th, and Business & Economics ranking 50th.

This success follows the University’s recent triumph in The Times & The Sunday Times Good University Guide, where Sussex was ranked third out of south east England’s 19 universities. The list shows that 92.7 percent of students successfully finish their degree.

Speaking of his commitment to putting the student experience at the heart of everything the University does, Vice-Chancellor Adam Tickell said:

“Having accelerated our plans to significantly improve all that we are doing for our students, I am confident that we will ensure that each and every one of our students is having the very best education experience possible and that we take Sussex to the next level.”

The Guardians’ 2018 league table ranked Sussex 3rd for career prospects out of 121 UK universities. Up four places from last year, the University has an impressive 86.7 percent graduate employment rate within six months of graduation. Its Careers and Employability Centre offers a range of services to help students gain rewarding careers on graduation, including internships, career fairs and industry links.
