Discover US

Find out more about Higher Education and the University of Sunderland in London by taking part in a Discover US day.

Choose from a range of interactive and engaging activities that have been designed to introduce pupils to Higher Education and encourage them to think about their future.

We tailor our events to meet your requirements. Discover US days can take place on campus or at your institution, at a time and date that suits you. We are happy to cater for small or large groups, and can run single or multiple sessions. We will discuss your aims and expectations beforehand in order to create an event that is perfect for you!

Activities can include:

  • UCAS and personal statement workshop
  • Student life session
  • Student finance talk
  • Subject taster session
  • Subject specific talks
  • Campus tours

Our activities are suitable for students aged 16+.

Talks and Workshops

We know that time is valuable for students in Years 12 and 13, so we have developed a series of talks and workshops to fill slots of 30 – 60 minutes.
You can decide whether these sessions are delivered on or off campus, to a form or year group, and as part of a full programme or a one-off session. We can be flexible to meet your needs.
