We are closely following the advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England and will keep all students up to date with any impact Covid-related restrictions might have on your experience during the 2021/22 academic year.

Published: 30 September 2021

In September 2021 the University returned to face-to-face teaching, laboratory and studio usage, and other activities on-campus, supported and enhanced by online learning. 

Our curriculum remains focused on the diverse needs of all our students as well as the expectations of professional bodies and graduate employers. All our teaching, learning and assessment is designed to support students to achieve their full potential. We are committed to:

We’ve worked hard to balance the needs of students with the guidelines set out by the Government and public health experts. We pride ourselves on the excellent support we offer to help our students settle into our vibrant student community. This support is available both online and on campus. If Government requirements change during the academic year, the University will respond and inform you of any changes that are required, we will always aim to ensure the overall aims of your course are not affected.

Learning resources

Our on-campus libraries open and accessible for students along with all specialist resources, equipment and facilities. Much of our recommended reading is available online, along with thousands of other books, e-books and journals to enable students to read around their assessments and delve into their subjects.

Please note: this guidance applies to Sunderland on-campus courses. For guidance on how courses are taught at partner colleges and other campuses, please check their websites directly.
