University of Sunderland

Here at the University of Sunderland, we aim to make sure that anyone leaving care has the same full, immersive and enjoyable time studying at university as any other student.

We also understand that you may have different circumstances or concerns if you are leaving care. We have a dedicated team who provide support to all care experienced young people considering Higher Education. We are here to help you throughout your journey from accommodation, finance and additional support you may be eligible for, as well as being a central point of contact for support throughout your studies. We are happy to accompany you to university events, open days, applicant days, interviews and graduation providing you with support wherever and whenever it’s needed.

We offer a scholarship of £1,500 per year for care experienced students. We also offer 52 week accommodation, summer storage and bespoke support for each student.

You can contact Wendy Price and the We Care Team on 0191 515 2216 or by email care.contact@sunderland.ac.uk
