Get traditional fish and chips on the beach, take a stroll around the quirky shops in the Lanes, or enjoy the incredible Sussex countryside that’s just on our doorstep. London’s just an hour away, and easy links to the rest of the UK and Europe make weekend travel adventures a breeze.

Cost

Costs for study abroad vary program to program and will not be exactly the same as on-campus costs of attendance at Elon.

For cost information for this program, please see the budget sheets:


Scholarships/Travel Grants

Need-based scholarships are available for Elon semester programs through the GEC. For additional information on scholarships or other funding for study abroad, see the Funding for Study Abroad page.

If you qualify for a travel grant through any of the fellows or scholars programs, see the appropriate program director for more information on how to apply the grant to your study abroad program. Visit the Deadlines and Events Calendar for travel grant deadlines.


Housing

When it comes to where you’ll live at Sussex, there are many options to help you feel at home. These include university-managed residences on and off-campus which students for the full year can apply for, and options such as homestay and private housing in Brighton and Hove.

This friendly campus puts everything on your doorstep, everything you need is just a short walk away. And we’re surrounded by the stunning countryside of the South Downs National Park. 


Applications

Students must complete the online Elon University study abroad application by the published deadline. See the Deadline and Events Calendar for the most up-to-date deadline information. Applications are generally accepted one semester in advance.

Initial approval is granted by Elon, and final acceptance is granted by the University of Sussex.


Orientations

A successful semester abroad is dependent upon adequate preparation. Students will participate in a series of mandatory orientations during the semester prior to studying abroad. These orientations will address issues of academic, cultural, logistical, financial, and personal preparation, as well as health and safety. Failure to participate in the required orientations will result in dismissal from the program. Any financial losses incurred by this dismissal, including program fees and international airfare, are the student's full responsibility.

View the semester program's pre-departure orientation schedule.
