Academics

 

Academics

Studying in England is very different than what you might be used to. Students are expected to study outside of class to retain a large portion of their subject matter.  Unlike universities in the United States, the majority of each student's grades in England is based on one or two large assignments or solely on the final test - not on class participation or attendance.  This study abroad experience  provides Emory students an independent experience with the opportunity to get to know students from Britain and all over the world.

The Study Abroad program at Sussex is fully integrated, so you will attend the same classes and live in the same accommodation as any other Sussex student. It is critical that you are prepared for immersion into the UK academic system. Here are some important characteristics we think it will be helpful for you to know about the UK academic system
Sussex will allocate your courses (modules) from those listed on your application form. You should have several backup choices in mind as you will not officially register for your courses until you arrive on campus. During Sussex's orientation you will be given instructions and the paperwork necessary to officially enroll in courses.

Note: Every effort will be made to place you in the courses you request. However, neither Sussex nor Emory University can guarantee placement in any course. Your first choices may not be available due to schedule changes, time conflicts or cancellations. Alternate course approval and flexibility is extremely important.
