University of Sussex offering £5,000 prize for vaccinated students

11 August 2021

The University of Sussex is offering cash prizes to students who prove they have been fully vaccinated in an effort to increase jab uptake.

All domestic and international students at the University will automatically be entered into the prize draw, with 10 winners receiving £5,000 if they can prove they have had both COVID-19 vaccines, or are medically exempt.

Prof Adam Tickell, the Sussex Vice-Chancellor, said: “We’re going to automatically enter every student in, and unless they have said they want to opt out, after we’ve given them the opportunity to have vaccines – this will be about 12 weeks after the announcement – we’ll just randomly choose 10 names.”

The University of Sussex is a leading research-intensive UK university ranked in the top 160 in the world (Times Higher Education World University Rankings 2021). It is the only English university to be located in a National Park (South Downs National Park) and is a short distance away from central Brighton, a vibrant seaside city in the south of England.

It is not too late to begin your UCAS application and study at Sussex from September 2021. Arrange a free consultation with SI-UK London now to get started.

 My consultant was very helpful and motivating. She helped me every step of the way, even when the deadline was so close. I feel I could not have done it without her. I'd highly recommend this service to any and all of my many friends interested.
