Our widening participation commitment

Our widening participation record is testimony to the work we do in raising aspirations and promoting social inclusion within our region.

The University is renowned for its supportive and nurturing approach to students, ensuring that everyone regardless of their background has the opportunity to reach their full potential.

The University’s annual Access and Participation Plan describes the work that it does to ensure that it is accessible to applicants from all walks of life, and provides tailored support to enable students to succeed in terms of academic success and graduate level employment.

The University has an excellent track record in attracting and supporting students from underrepresented groups and is committed to raising aspirations at a local, regional and national level.

The University’s London Campus has been successful in attracting a diverse, vibrant student community. Sunderland based students are given the opportunity to broaden their horizons through exposure to a London based study and cultural programme.
