Individual tours

Individual tours are a great opportunity to take a look around our University campus, see the facilities we have to offer and find out if Sunderland is the place for you. With the option to meet a member of our academic staff, you can also find out more about your chosen course and ask any questions you may have about studying with us.

Visits are delivered by our current Student Ambassadors and members of staff in our Home Recruitment service who are experts in providing tours of our campuses, including the libraries, social spaces, teaching areas and facilities available for your chosen course.

First Choice

Our First Choice Progression Scheme aims to equip pupils with the key skills required to be successful at university, supporting you in your journey towards Higher Education.
