Students studying

At the University of Sunderland in London, we’re extremely proud of the huge amount of diversity on our campus.  

We have students from all around the world come to learn and achieve their goals here.  

There are plenty of reasons to complete your degree as an international student with us so consider some of the below before you decide to apply.  

You’ll get a scholarship  

One of the biggest considerations anyone has before applying for a university course is the cost.  

While fees for international students are higher than for people from the UK, we’ve worked hard to make study with us as accessible as possible.  

That’s why we offer a huge discount of £1,500 for all our undergraduate and postgraduate courses.

Additional financial support  

But it’s not just us that offers you help as an international student. The UK government has hundreds of scholarships every year to students just like you.  

The aim is to support the best and brightest to be able to study in this country, regardless of your financial status.  

There’s a lot to unpack about the process, which courses are applicable and how much you could get.  

The UK Council for International Student Affairs (UKCISA) has a great website detailing everything you need to know.   

London...just London 

When asked, one of the things our students and graduates list most often about why they love studying at the University of Sunderland in London is the location.  

London is one of the world’s most vibrant, busy, historical, cultural and impactful cities (among many other things) and coming to live here is an experience in itself.  

Over 300,000 students each year decide to study in London, taking advantage of the food, galleries, museums, theatre and much more on top of their academic considerations.  

Of course, the University of Sunderland in London is unique in another way. Being based in the very heart of the capital’s financial district of Canary Wharf, you’ll have the opportunity to study while being surrounded by a global hub of business excellence. What could be more inspiring than that?  

International courses for international students  

When you’re thinking about studying anywhere, one of the most important things to consider is the course itself.  

You should make sure it’s right for you, that you’re going to learn the things you need for your career and it fits your goals.  

That’s why so many of our courses have an international focus, from our tourism degrees that give you the chance to visit globally recognised sites to our business courses which use examples from companies around the world.  

You’ll graduate with the ability to work wherever you want, whether that’s staying in London, returning to your home country or exploring the rest of the globe.  

Studying at the University of Sunderland in London is an incredible experience whether you’re from around the corner or another continent.   

Our international community widens your field of experience, helping you to learn from other cultures and ways of life. In the end, that will make you a more rounded, and more employable, graduate.
