The moment we were shortlisted as University of the Year

We're very proud to announce to say that the University of Sunderland was shortlisted for the prestigious University of the Year award, in this year's Times Higher Education annual awards. The nomination recognises how we strive to make your time at university life-changing and welcome students from all backgrounds. 

Our city by the sea

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. 

Think Course. Think Career, Think Sunderland.

We’re well known for creating a friendly, warm and inclusive environment to give our staff and students the best experience possible. Our ethos is simple, you'll become part of the University of Sunderland family, when you first join us to long after you've graduated.
