The program is a specially adapted first year bachelor course for international students.

Students develop effective skills in reading and assimilating information, skills in literate and accurate written language, listening skills and fast fixing of information. In addition, the skills of effective participation in seminars and creative activities are actively developing, and the clarity and correctness of the presentation of their thoughts in English is sharpened.
  • Skills of career development. Much attention is paid to the development of career building skills. The process of studying at the university is inextricably linked with the process of employment and self-realization in the professional sphere, and therefore students have a unique opportunity from the first days of studying to receive comprehensive support in finding the most preferred specialization and the field of application of their talents.

Object-oriented modules consist of a set of disciplines required for each specific area and specialization. The education process is designed in such a way that different formats of work complement each other and help students to better absorb the material. These include:

  • Lectures and interactive lectures;
  • Seminar classes;
  • Master classes on various aspects of knowledge;
  • Seminars conducted by the students themselves;
  • Independent work and work in groups;
  • Laboratory experiments;
  • Seminars in the research key;
  • Experiments and scientific research on a specific topic.

To control the progress of students verification work periodically performs, such as:

  • Exams;
  • Tests;
  • Presentations;
  • Essays and extended essays
  • Reports on laboratory work and course projects.

Students receive all the help they need from teachers and university specialists. During the studying they adapt to the education system, the design of the university and the way of life in the country. After the successful completion of the program, students enter the second year of the undergraduate program at the University of Sussex for the chosen specialty (from among the available ones).
