Get to know Sunderland

There's so much to discover in the city of Sunderland and we're proud to call this vibrant, welcoming and inclusive city our home. 

Sunderland has historical significance as one of the major port cities in the UK and in recent decades the city has become known for its abundance of arts, sports and culture. Not to mention the selection of independent bars and delicious restaurants just waiting to be discovered. 

Step out of the city centre and you can find yourself walking along the Blue Flag shores of Seaburn or Roker Beach within minutes. It's the perfect spot to take in the natural beauty and take a break from city life. 

The city is also ideally located for exploring the North East and beyond. Only a few hours from Scotland, Manchester and London, there are limitless opportunities to see more of what the UK has to offer. 

Major investment will see the University spend over £250 million in the next 10 years and transform our on-campus facilities with a particular focus on the Sir Tom Cowie Campus at St Peter’s. Exciting developments will include a new library, student centre, International Business School, Sunderland Health Innovation Zone, and sports ground.

Get funding support

Choosing to go to university and pursue a degree is a significant investment in your future and we want to support you during your studies.

With the cost of living rising, we know that affordability is more important than ever. For our undergraduate students, we offer a selection of scholarships and bursaries to make your time at university more affordable. 

Learn more about our undergraduate scholarships and bursaries. 

Think Course. Think Career, Think Sunderland.

We're proud... to be a top 50 UK university (Guardian University Guide 2024), of our top-quality facilities, inclusive culture and our vibrant, ever-changing city. But we're most proud of you, and where you go after here, because that's the point isn't it!
