RSS Feed Information
We invite you to use University of Sunderland RSS feeds to add the latest University news, events and forthcoming open days to your feed reader, free of charge, for individual, non-commercial use.
What are feeds and what is RSS?
A feed allows you to see when websites have added new content, without the need to visit the site where the feed comes from. A feed contains regularly updated summaries of web content, including links to the full versions of the content. By subscribing to a feed, you can view summaries of the information in one place.
Feeds are often known as RSS, which is short for Really Simple Syndication. RSS is a widely-supported format for feeds.
How do I use RSS feeds?
In order to use a feed, you will require a feed reader (or "news aggregator"). Feed readers allow you to subscribe and view multiple feeds, automatically retrieving updates so you always have the latest information as soon as it is published.
There are various feed readers available, many of which are free. They can be an installable application or web based. The latest versions of the popular web browsers allow you view feeds directly, removing the need for a separate feed reader.
To subscribe to the University of Sunderland feeds, right-click on the feed and choose the "Copy Shortcut" or "Copy Link Location" option from the context menu. You will then need to follow the instructions for your particular feed reader, to paste the URL in the relevant location where it asks for the URL of the feed you wish to subscribe to.
If you are using the latest version of one of the popular web browsers, you can click on the feed link to view or subscribe to it. However, you will need to ensure that your browser is capable of supporting feeds; otherwise you may see unfriendly, unformatted code.
The University of Sunderland provides the RSS feeds as a free service, for individual, non-commercial use. By accessing our RSS service, you are agreeing not to contravene these conditions. The University reserves the right to discontinue the services at any time without notice, and the right to request the immediate termination of any specific use of the service.
