2014-2016 A Levels Maths, Physics and Chemistry

“Living in the UK has broadened my views and taught me so much about culture. Lewes is a very interesting historic little town,and I love to walk around  at dusk. I love the A-Level course because it focusses on the subjects I like the most and which I want to study in the future. I intend to go to university here in the UK and have received offers from the Universities of Cardiff and Sussex, and I feel that this course is preparing me very well. The teachers at SDC are very well informed and know how to make a class interesting.”

Sussex Downs College International Student Award Winner 2011

I did not have a dream until I came to Sussex Downs College. The teachers are friendly, helpful and make learning fun. My English has improved quickly. I have also joined extra-curricular activities to make sure I meet local students and I practice my English with them. I have made lots of friends here. When I return to Japan I have decided to study English language and Travel and Tourism at university.”
