Find out who your Departmental Representative and Director of Teaching and Learning are.

Academic staff

Each department at Sussex has an appointed Study Abroad departmental representative, responsible for any year abroad issues that directly involve the your home department. Your representative will approve the module choices you select as part of your application. 

If you are applying for the semester abroad, your application will also need to be approved by the Director of Teaching and Learning for your school.
