Get Started

Explore our guide to starting out at Sussex for new and returning students.

The first weeks of term

We hope you’ve been getting to know the campus and starting to feel part of our Sussex community as part of Welcome Week.

Get Started is the third part of your Welcome and induction programme, as you start your journey as a Sussex student.

Over these weeks you can catch up on anything you missed during Welcome Week and find out more about some of the support services available to you.

You have sessions provided by your Schools. Information and details for these will be available through your Sussex Direct timetable.

There are follow-up support sessions and events hosted by members of the University that introduce you to a variety of services and support on offer.

Watch the sessions

View all the recorded sessions relevant to you through your Canvas Welcome module:
