Visiting us on campus

Join us at our next Open Day. Explore the University's fantastic campus, meet current students and staff, and learn more about your chosen course. If you're travelling from outside of the North East region, we may even be able to reimburse some of your travel costs!

If you can't make our Open Day, you could book a campus tour, where you'll be guided around the campus by one of our student ambassadors or a member of our friendly student recruitment team. You could also check out our Virtual Open Day to discover more about student life at Sunderland and what we can offer you.

Our courses, your future

Whether you want to join the next generation of key workers, contribute to world-leading research, or create a new vision for the future, we have a course that's right for you. Explore our courses and apply today.

We offer a range of courses across our five unique faculties. Many offer cross-faculty collaborative working and interprofessional learning, as well as placement and work experience opportunities that give you the edge employers are looking for. We also offer flexible learning opportunities across many of our courses, enabling you to balance your university studies with your personal life.

If you've missed out on achieving the entry qualifications for your chosen university or course, or are considering coming back into education after time away, you could consider an Integrated Foundation Year course.
