Quality: The great teaching you'll receive at Sunderland is reflected in our Silver rating in the Teaching Excellence Framework (TEF) assessment, and with 93.4% of graduates in employment or further study within six months (based on 2016/17 UK undergraduate students), you can be assured of a high-quality experience.
Location: We're a coastal city with beautiful beaches and a modern city centre. We're also only 30 minutes away from lively Newcastle on the Metro, and within easy reach of historical Durham.
Inclusivity: Sunderland was recently ranked as the most inclusive university in the UK (The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021) so you know you'll always get a warm welcome and all the support you need.
Safety: We are closely following the advice from the Department for Education and Public Health England and will keep all new students up to date with any impact Covid-related restrictions might have on your experience from September 2021. Learn more about our student learning, teaching and assessment proposals for 2021, and hybrid learning.
Employability: Our Sunderland Futures team will help you with advice and guidance on becoming more employable, through CV-writing sessions, volunteering, placements, an online vacancy service, support with starting a business, employer events and even a certificate of achievement through the Sunderland Professional Award. We go the extra mile to make sure you achieve your career goals.
Bonus reason: We have the coolest Chancellor, the award-winning singer-songwriter Emeli Sandé.
