Academics- England Sussex Summer
In order to have an idea of what classes are available, you should visit the University of Sussex website.

When looking for courses, be sure that you are looking at courses for undergraduate students only and that you are looking at classes in the correct Summer Session (International Summer School Session 1 or 2).  Students are able to take only one course per session. 

British Universities are typically on a three-year system; thus, courses listed as “Level 1,” “Level 2,” and “Level 3” do not necessarily translate into first, second, and third year courses in the American system. Students in the past have recommended taking courses at Level 1 or Level 2.  Unlike the U.S. university system, universities in England offer upper-level courses at the Level 1 to Level 2. Courses at Level 3 tend to be rather advanced, much like our graduate courses, and may not be suitable for you, especially if you have never had a course in that particular department. However, you may request Level 3 courses if you really feel it necessary and appropriate.

Each summer session course at Sussex will be worth 4 Rutgers credits.  Students staying for both Sessions I and II will be able to take one course each session worth 4 Rutgers credits each, for a total of 8 credits.

Credit Transfer

All courses taken abroad through a Rutgers Study Abroad program will count towards a student’s general graduation total.  These courses also factor into the cumulative Grade Point Average (courses are not available for Pass/Fail).  The student is responsible for ensuring that a course taken abroad can be applied towards a major/minor/general education requirement.  Major/Minor courses must be approved by the department head and general education requirements must be approved by a dean.  Each department has its own procedure for course approval.  Please contact the individual department for specific details.
