Sussex University is arguably one of the most diverse and unique universities out there, with students from all across the globe. Celebrating identity, race, culture and nationality are what Sussex is all about. So, it's no surprise that Sussex have got an epic line up for their #oneworldweek for final week of term.

Yesterday saw an array of exciting events, with a One World Week Yoga session organised by Sussex Sport, A "what's in your suitcase" session which invites participants to reflect on international migration, and a GeogSoc 'Around the World' Interactive Quiz at East Slopw.
