Sunderland - a city by the sea
Sunderland is a city by the sea in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK.
It's a vibrant city at an exciting time - £1bn is being invested in Sunderland during the next few years, and the arrival of more luxury apartments and designer shops indicate the level of wealth now being generated in the city.
The bold new Sunderland Software City initiative will create a vibrant software industry over the next few years, which is expected to attract millions of pounds of investment, employ thousands of people and generate considerable wealth for the city. The University is seen as being key to the success of this vision.
The University is also central to the £300m film academy and studios at Seaham, a coastal town just ten minutes drive from Sunderland city centre. The project will establish a world-class centre for film and media, including a film studio complex, student campus and educational buildings, parkland, hotels and leisure facilities.
This is the future for Sunderland; we hope you will be a part of it.
