Sunderland University Events


Online Digital Resources


We are in a new year for your year 12 students and a possible UCAS year for your year 13+ students.  We have been working hard over the summer to create online digital support for you and your students. 


We have created a presentation giving information about university and the University of Sunderland which may be beneficial for your year 12 students.  We also have a range of UCAS support available including, what is UCAS and personal statements, which we thought may benefit your year 13+ students at this time.  If you are interested in receiving any of our digital support please email us.
