The University of Sunderland is a global institution. We offer life-changing opportunities to thousands of students across the world, in our partner colleges and in our four main sites at Sunderland, London and Hong Kong. We are research active, with ten areas of 'world-leading’ research – real-world research that is taught in your lecture halls and labs. Sunderland will put you, our student, at the heart of everything that we do.
Sunderland has a rich history and one of the UK’s lowest costs of living. City Campus is at the centre of our modern city, and is home to our main administration and support services, library, lecture halls, and our excellent sport facilities at CitySpace. It is also the centre for the University’s Arts and Design courses and home to our main Sciences provision, housing our world-famous Pharmacy School, our Living Labs, School of Nursing and the newly-established School of Medicine.
The University’s impressive riverside campus is within easy reach of both the city and Sunderland’s miles of beautiful beaches. Business, Law, Tourism, Education and Social Sciences are based here, as is the University’s main centre for Computing and Engineering. Media is also taught here, at The David Puttnam Media Centre, which houses a cinema, industry-standard TV studios, lecture halls and the University’s award-winning community radio station, Spark Sunderland. The riverside is also home to the Northern Centre of Photography, the National Glass Centre, as well as The David Goldman Technology Centre, a high-tech computing environment with strong links to software companies and a constant exchange of ideas and people.
The University of Sunderland in London, located near the Canary Wharf financial district, is a base we’re proud of having in one of the most vibrant cities in the world.
