One World Sussex

One World Sussex events highlight cultural, social and educational activities which aim to expose all students to a globalised world and diversity of cultures.

The multitude of nationalities and cultures of our students and staff provides an excellent opportunity for us to put on events that engage, educate and entertain, from raising global awareness though lectures on world issues to the celebration of cultural festivals.

Through this sharing of different cultures we hope to encourage the successful integration of UK and international students, promoting the mutual identity of a global campus for everyone to celebrate and enjoy.
