"The university has many events in place for international students, such as the buddy scheme to help them feel more welcome and familiar with students from England. There is also a weekly food market where stalls offer different cuisines from all around the world."
"There are people from many different countries and nations. The diversity and acceptance is really high."
"They are currently trying to improve the experience of minority students by introducing an annual 'one world week' event."
"The first generation scholarship is fantastic and caters brilliantly for those who are first in their family to attend university."
"We have a very large number of international students here at Sussex."
"Sussex offers a first-generation scholar's scheme for people who come from less well-off families, there are also a range of societies for people of differing backgrounds."
"They do enough to have a strongly diverse environment in my opinion."
"I think the scholarships are particularly useful in attracting students. However, fees for international students may still be too high to attract some of the most talented."
"There's a very multicultural group of students and the university, along with the city of Brighton, caters for all cultures and nationalities with a variety of events."
"It has lots of international students and does a lot to encourage students, from a range of backgrounds, to come here even if they may not have originally considered university study."
