The University of Sunderland in London is a diverse and wide-ranging community made up of everything from professionals looking to shift careers to recent graduates who’re just stepping into education for the first time, and everyone in between.
Since March this year, when the campus closed and teaching moved online, we’ve been exploring more and more ways to keep our community thriving, even at a distance. That’s where social media comes in.
The University has accounts across all the major platforms. Each channel offers you something different. But they’re all there for the same purpose, to support you and grow our amazing community. All on-campus events are advertised through our social media channels, so stay tuned.

Your professional home on social media. LinkedIn is the place you need to be if you want to go into any kind of business after graduating while looking for a job, or if you’re just interested in being more involved in an industry.
You can use this site to network, find connections, hear from experts and share your own thoughts on a wide range of employment-related topics.

A newer site for us, but one of the most popular on the internet.
Instagram is the image sharing platform that’s grown from a place for professional photographers to the Facebook-owned, influencer-filled channel to be seen on.
There are two main sections to Instagram – the Feed and Stories.
The Feed is where you can find pictures of everything from people’s dinners to cats looking cute. On ours, we only share the most important, relevant and up-to-date information you need to know.
Stories is a time-limited picture or video shared by an account. Once you’ve seen it, it disappears. So, pay attention!
We like to share posts from our partners and friends. Try tagging the University and you could even be featured.
Social media has grown incredibly fast in the past few years. An estimated 3.6 billion users (over half the world’s population) are on at least one platform.
With all those people talking, it’s important to know where to go for the information you need.
