The University of Sunderland is an ambitious university with a global reach. We have 20,000 students at our four campuses worldwide – two in Sunderland on the north east coast, one in London and our newest in Hong Kong. We’re known internationally for the quality of our teaching and research and we’re proud to be one of the most popular study destinations for overseas students. This creates a fantastically diverse student population and means that our students will be studying alongside people from over 100 countries around the world.
The University’s global partnerships, world-leading research, partnerships with businesses and collaborations with private and public regional leaders are focused on our key areas of strength: sciences, advanced manufacturing, software, enterprise and innovation and creative industries.
The University has been awarded Silver in the Teaching Excellence Framework which demonstrates our high-quality teaching, learning and outcomes for our students.
The University is extremely proud of the support we offer to our students to enable our graduates to have the skills employers are seeking. The Sunderland Futures programme helps students develop the skills and experience needed for success in their graduate career, with opportunities for mentoring, placements, studying abroad, internships and much more. The Sunderland Professional Award (SuPA) is an employer-recognised certificate awarded to our students who successfully demonstrate skills achieved across areas of academic activity, work experience and career planning as well as other relevant extra-curricular areas.
We believe we will help you expand your horizons, internationalise your prospects and give you every advantage possible to thrive in a global economy.
