About the University of Sunderland
At the University of Sunderland, we are passionate about engaging with and inspiring pupils and students from all backgrounds. Our Pre and Post-16 teams are here to help and support students, parents and carers, and teachers by providing recruitment and outreach activity that is flexible, accessible and meets everyone’s needs.
We have recently been awarded University of the Year for Social Inclusion by The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021, which recognises our commitment to offering inclusive opportunities everywhere from our medical school to our art studios. It also recognises that our staff work hard to raise students’ aspirations and make a positive contribution to economic and social change.
We have a comprehensive programme of presentations and resources that suit every level from primary, secondary, 6th form to college students and those who are returning to learning. They are designed to offer information, advice and guidance to students on their journey through education.
