Hi everyone!
I just accepted my offer for MSc Sustainable Development at Sussex.
Anyone else is joining this course in September?

Additional note:
I received 3 offers
a) MSc Sustainable Development (Sussex)
b) MA Development Studies (Sussex)
c) MSc Environment and Sustainable Development (UCL)

After much consideration (budget, locations and course details), I chose MSc Sustainable Development in Sussex. I hope I'm making the right decision and looking forward to studying there.

Hey, I'm in the middle of application process for MSc Global Health at Brighton (taught at the Sussex campus at Falmer). I just received an invitation for a Skype interview. Did you have an interview? Any insights you can share?

No, they don't have interview for both courses I applied at Sussex.

Anyway, good luck with your application! All the best.

Hey! Congrats on the offers and good luck at Sussex!
I have applied for the same MSc at UCL but waiting to hear back. Do you mind stating what you studied at uni and your final mark etc please?

Thankyou

Hi! Thank you. I waited for almost 6 months before getting my offer from UCL. I completed my application back in December 2019 and never received any replies from them. This is one of the reasons, I am more keen to study in Sussex because of the communication I had with them throughout the application process. Nevertheless, UCL is still a good choice, I believe you will receive your good news soon.

However, as I am an international student and a mature student myself (received my first degree in engineering in 2011), my background of study does not really matter.

Hope this helps you. Good luck and all the best!

Hello!
I studied chemical engineering for my first degree. Then work as an engineer for a year before changing my career to my now profession. Currently, I worked with a government-linked cooperation, where I deal with sustainability matters particularly related to agriculture and environment issues. I have worked for almost 9 years.

Anyway, all the best for your application next year.

So i'm guessing you will just head back into your field at higher pay! That's smart! I guess in that scenario you won't need the fancier name of UCL. Most of us doing postgrad in Europe now have to try and chase the prestige since we're going to start our careers with MSc...lol. Though i made a similar decision to you and chose a university that appealed to me more than just purely ranking. Had an offer for Manchester but am starting in the Netherlands in September (University of Groningen). Hope you enjoy your time in the UK!

Partly true. I will eventually head back to my current workplace upon graduation later. In term of ranking, Sussex's development studies/sustainable development is no.1 in the world. So, I guess it still means something and have some accreditation to it...LoL. But yes, UCL seems fancier in the CV and perhaps boost up my image.

Anyway, all the best in the Netherlands!
