Topic - Open Events, Schools and Colleges

Join us for our Open Evening to explore the University's fantastic campus, find out more about our undergraduate Computer Science degrees and chat to our current students and staff.

As well as having the opportunity to find out about our Computer Science courses, you'll also be able to take a tour of our newly installed Games Lab and take part in an engaging taster session - Hack the Planet.

The world today is dominated by “systems”, most of which are either web-based or on your phone. Even big companies are now using web-based systems to run their office applications.

In this interactive session, you will explore how an insider threat (a disgruntled employee) can potentially work their way through a web-based system and illegally access information. In this case, you will be guided through how, due to a badly written system, you are able to steal passwords.

At this event you’ll also be able to find out about:

  • Student Finance
  • University of Sunderland Scholarships and Bursaries
  • Admissions and the application process
  • Student support, including wellbeing and disability support

Take that first life changing step by signing up to our open evening and find out what the University of Sunderland has to offer.
