About the University of Sunderland

At the University of Sunderland we welcome all with talent into higher education and support them in reaching their potential.

Our work is shaping the city and region and we are proud of our University’s positive contribution to economic and social change. We are committed to equality, diversity and inclusion and were proud to be named University of the Year for Social Inclusion by The Times and Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021. In 2020, our We Care programme received the NEON Widening Access Initiative (Retention and Progression) Award. 

The University has 20,000 students based at campuses in Sunderland, London and Hong Kong, as well as with global learning partnerships in 15 countries. Our graduates leave equipped with the knowledge, skills, confidence and connections to make a positive difference in the wider world.

In 2018 we opened a new School of Medicine and with a track-record of excellence in medical education spanning almost 100 years, the University is now well-placed to address the chronic shortage of doctors in the North East.  We were also delighted to be ranked 16th (out of 131 universities) in the ‘University of the Year’ category of the Whatuni Student Choice Awards 2019, the only national awards voted for by students.
