Sunderland is located on the northeast coast of England with easy access to the nearby coast and countryside. Newcastle International airport is within easy reach and has regular flights to the major hubs of Heathrow/Gatwick and Amsterdam. London is approximately 3.5 hours by train.
Sunderland has everything you would expect from a major city. Arts, culture, sport, heritage and history are in plenty supply. But the city also has a few extras. Sunderland has the added advantage of being a city by the sea in one of the most beautiful parts of the UK, with Newcastle, Northumberland and the North Yorkshire Moors on its doorstep. Sunderland is one of the UK’s most up-and-coming cities. A vibrant music and club scene, café style culture, premiership football and indoor shopping centres make Sunderland a desirable place to live.
One of the best things about being a student is the sense of belonging you feel. Sunderland’s Student's Union is at the heart of this. Union membership is free and open to everyone. With over 40 clubs and societies, chances are you will find your hobby or interest is already provided for, but if not, you’re also welcome to start your own. The Student’s Union also runs trips specifically for International students at a discounted rate to cities such as Edinburgh, York, Manchester, Glasgow, Leeds and Liverpool.
