Being an alumnus of the University of Sunderland in London comes with lots of perks.  

The most obvious one, of course, is having the skills and knowledge necessary to enter the world of work as an expert in your field.  

But another is the opportunity to continue on your academic journey with us.  

Studying for your postgraduate degree at the University is a fantastic way to take your education, and employability, to the next level.  

While many of the students on our MSc and MBA degrees have studied at other institutions, a large number of our graduates choose to return and complete their higher degrees here too.  

Financial benefits  

An important thing to consider when applying for your course is the cost.  

As an alumnus of the University of Sunderland in London, you’re entitled to a £1,000 discount for any MSc degree and £1,500 for our MBAs.  

Please note: this excludes the MBA (Dissertation Only), MBA (Top-Up) and MSc Tourism and Hospitality (Dissertation only) courses. 

To qualify you will need to reach a grade of 2:2 or higher in your undergraduate, so if you’re currently working towards your first degree, take that into consideration.   

There’s also no time limit on when you can apply, so even if you’ve graduated a while ago you can still take advantage of this discount.  

Finally, if you did your degree at one of our Sunderland or Hong Kong campuses and want to join us in London, you’re in luck!   

The alumni discount can be used across the entire University of Sunderland family.  

Range of courses  

Another obvious reason to continue your academic journey with us is the diversity of courses we have on offer.  

There are postgraduate degrees across Business, Management and Finance, Tourism, Hospitality and Events and Nursing and Health for you to carry on directly from the undergraduate.  

But if you’re interested in expanding your knowledge into a different field, it’s worth considering applying for the MSc Engineering or MSc Project Management courses.   

Both of these take the experience you have gained from any undergraduate degree and build on it to give you the knowledge you’ll need to work in two very popular fields.  

Or you could apply for among the most sort after business degrees available at the moment - the MBA or Master of Business Administration.   

This globally recognised course focuses on giving you the qualities expected of higher up leaders in the international marketplace.  

At the University of Sunderland in London, we have eight MBAs to choose from, including Hospitality Management, Human Resources and Marketing 

As a continuing student, you’ll be taking a deeper dive into your field of interest in familiar surroundings, benefiting from the years you’ve already spent here getting involved in our unique and friendly community.
