Bespoke talks and workshops

We know that time is valuable for students in Years 12 and 13 and you may not be able to make it to specific events. That's why we've developed a series of talks and workshops on a range of topics which you can book at a time to suit you. These can take place at our University or at your school or college.

Individual tours

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

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