Institution Profile

University of Sunderland support for schools and colleges

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, recognising our commitment to offering inclusive opportunities for students. We are also proud to be a top 50 UK university (Guardian University Guide 2023) for our top-quality facilities, inclusive culture, and our vibrant ever-changing city.

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.

Our presentations cover:

  • University for Me- What is higher education, what is university?
  • Career chasers- what is a degree and how does this link to careers in different job sectors
  • Why university?
  • Resilience
  • Decisions, Decisions- focusing on GCSE options
  • Study Smarter
  • Why Sunderland?
  • What is UCAS?
  • Which university, which course?
  • Personal Statements
  • Budgeting and Student Finance
  • Interview Skills

Some of the above presentations can be accessed here for use in classrooms and we can arrange for one of the team to deliver these presentations to your students in-person or online.

In addition to presentations we are also running subject specific workshops which can be delivered on-campus or at your school, and can be tailored to you needs. Find out more here. If we are not running something relevant to your needs below, please do get in touch with us at [email protected] and we can put together something bespoke for your students.

We look forward to working with you, and always welcome any feedback around our presentations and taster sessions, so please feel free to get in touch via the email address above, we look forward to hearing from you.
