Meet Our Students
Alex Appoloni Italy
“I decided to study at Sussex Downs College because of the great choice of subjects that the college offers to the students.
I also love the location of Lewes as it is close to London. The college has great facilities such as a library and a self-study centre. I get on very well with my host family and my housemates from Italy and Hungary. My ambition is to be a pilot and Sussex Downs College has helped me greatly improve my English and knowledge of academic subjects such as Maths and Science.”

“The reason why that I have chosen Sussex Downs College was because my agent recommended it to me. I told my agent that I wanted to live quiet and peaceful city, I want to stay in a dormitory and I want to learn complementary therapy. Then my agent found this college for me. My teachers are very nice and kind. Every time when I ask them something, they give me more information than I expected. My agent recommended this college for me, and that was the best choice which I have ever made. Thank you so much Sussex Downs College and my friends, I will never forget these memories.”

“I chose Sussex Downs College as I want to study medicine at a UK university.
Lewes is a very pretty town and a peaceful place to study. I like meeting people from other countries and comparing the UK system of studying with my own country. I have also enjoyed speaking to my host family in the evenings which has greatly helped my English improve.”
English Language Plus
“I am studying on the English Language Plus course for a year. I have found the teaching to have been of a very high quality and my written English has improved greatly in particular.
My host family have been very kind and friendly and we speak every night about the events of the day.
Next year I may come back to the college to study A Levels.”
“Sussex Downs College offers really good support to students. Outside of my English classes I go to the gym and play golf at Lewes Golf Club. It is a good way to meet local people and to practice my English. I hope to study at a Japanese University to study Sports Science and to become a professional golfer.”
‘’I really enjoy the College environment and find it a calm and peaceful place to study. My teachers are very helpful and I have really improved my English. The atmosphere in the classroom is very nice and I have a good relationship with my classmates who come from many different countries.’’
“I chose to study at Sussex Downs College because of the teaching quality and because it is an IELTS Test Centre. My Intensive IELTS teacher is fantastic and my classmates are very encouraging. The course is great and is good for students who must improve their English to get a high IELTS score. I am working towards a score of at least 6.0 to be accepted for a Masters in Environmental Engineering.”
“I am very happy to have received an offer to study Management at the University of Durham. I began my studies at Sussex Downs College with an English language course to improve my level of English, and then I progressed on to my A Level course. My English has improved, I have become a better student and I am more independent. I now feel ready to study at a British University. Thank you Sussex Downs College!”
