Sixth form, colleges and beyond

We can offer a range of engaging activities for students in Years 12+, from workshops on budgeting and student life to student shadowing and subject-specific taster sessions in business, media, nursing or psychology and many more.

Get Into... series

Our on-campus experience is designed to give sixth form and college students the opportunity to 'Get Into' their subject area and University life at Sunderland. Each Get Into... event can be tailored to you and your students’ needs and can include anything from hands on subject sessions, campus tours, career advice and student-life activities.

UCAS application support

We are happy to offer one to one UCAS support sessions. We know the process can get a little overwhelming so we want to support you in completing your UCAS application.

Student Shadowing

Want to spend a day in the life of a University of Sunderland student? Throughout the year, we organise 'Student Shadowing' days, where you can spend a day shadowing a Sunderland student around campus. Get a student's-eye view of university life – you can see what a real lecture is like, find out where students relax between classes and even get a chance to see where you might be living in one of our Halls of Residence.
