Executive Officer, Asian Programmes

University of Sussex - Sussex Abroad Office

Sussex University recognises the significant benefits to students of spending a period of time studying overseas as part of their degree and operates a large study abroad programme for term, year-long and summer school outward mobility.

The work of the Sussex Abroad team involves developing and maintaining partnerships for student exchange and study abroad opportunities; it oversees administrative processes, promotes study abroad across the university; prepares and supports students through the process before and during their time away. 

The Executive Officer for Asian Programmes plays a key role in the team supporting outward mobility to Asia. This includes:

  • Working directly with students going on study abroad to Asia for a term or a year
  • Working directly with students attending summer schools abroad, through the Global Excellence Summer Programme, and the First Generation Scholar S. E Asia scheme.
  • Working with new and current higher education partners in Asia for student exchange
  • Promoting study abroad and summer school opportunities;
  • Undertaking visits overseas and hosting visits to Sussex;
  • Supporting the wider team and Head of International Programmes with developing new study abroad initiatives and exchange partnerships, such as via partner approval processes and preparing due diligence reports on prospective new partners.

Candidates should be educated to degree level or equivalent and will have proven administrative skills, excellent organisational and communication skills. They will demonstrate excellence in providing a high quality student experience and the ability to work both independently and as part of a busy team.

Experience of study abroad as part of a degree, and of Asian culture or languages, either through professional or personal interest, would be an advantage.
