The University of Sunderland has risen three places in the new Complete University Guide league table released today.

The University ranks 72nd in this year's guide, compared to its previous position at 75th. This is the fourth consecutive year that the University has moved up the rankings, climbing 36 places in that time.

Sir David Bell, Vice-Chancellor and Chief Executive of the University of Sunderland, said: “League tables are only one indicator of what happens in the University and should always be treated with caution.

“However, our improved ranking in Complete University Guide 2025 – along with many other accolades that have come our way recently – are indicators of the growing standing and reputation of the University of Sunderland, locally, nationally and internationally.

“We continue to focus our efforts on delivering programmes that offer the best opportunities to our students when they graduate and address the skills gaps in our region. We are also looking forward to celebrating the first-ever graduating class from our new medical school this summer, another example of the contribution we are making to the city of Sunderland and the wider region.”

Further analysis from the guide shows that graduates from north-east universities were more likely to secure top-tier roles compared to their counterparts in London.

Every year the Complete University Guide releases UK university and subject league tables to support prospective students in making informed decisions about their future.
