I'm considering applying for their Medicine A100 course but am unsure as to the quality of education/location etc. Would someone be willing to describe what the Uni is like for its Sciences?

Hi,
So I'm considering applying to the University of Sunderland. I have a few questions;
1. How many places are available for the A100 course?
2. Could you explain the selection process? How much weighting do you place on the Roles and Responisiblities Form or UCAT etc.

All med schools are monitored by the GNC, so they all offer the education needed to become a doctor, and if they were failing to do this adequately, the GMC would step in.
Sunderland is in the North-East, about 15 miles from Newcastle and 12 miles from Durham. The city itself has little to make it stand out, and is an area of pretty high deprivation, but there is some lovely coastline and countryside around it. If you are uncertain, go and visit it and have a look round; they are very proud of their medical course and I'm sure somebody would be happy to speak to you UniversityOfSunderland

Hi there,

Thank you for your interest in studying Medicine at the University of Sunderland, it's only normal that you have a few questions about the course and the city we are based in, both of which i'll try and cover in this post

I think one of the most important factors for me when choosing a university/course was who I would be taught by.
At Sunderland, you’ll be taught by internationally-acclaimed academics in some of the UK’s most groundbreaking facilities, gaining unique insights into some of the health needs of our population. You’ll study in some of the best-performing Trusts in England and receive the right balance of personal and professional teaching methods.

Not to go too deep into the history but the University of Sunderland has been providing higher education since 1901 – including science and areas related to medicine – and they continue to be at the forefront of teaching, learning and research!
The Sciences Complex, where you'll be based, offers one of the best student experiences for those studying the sciences, including industry-standard research and teaching laboratories and testing equipment in pharmacy, pharmaceutical, biomedical, environmental and sports sciences. The non-clinical components of the course are based here.

With regards to the city itself, Sunderland has the perfect combination of city and seaside living and is a friendly, diverse and affordable place for you to live and study. By studying in Sunderland, you’ll be based in a fantastic city by the sea – one which was shortlisted for City of Culture 2021 in fact.

There are many reason to study Medicine at Sunderland, more of which you can find on our website here but why not come and see for yourself?

We have a number of open days throughout the year which will allow you to experience the course and meet the academics for yourself. There will also be opportunities to explore the campus and surrounding city, as well as check out our accommodation options.
You can find out more about our upcoming events here.

Let me know if there's anything else you wish to know
