Sunderland has been named University of the Year for Social Inclusion, according to The Times and The Sunday Times Good University Guide 2021.
The prestigious honour recognises the University’s long-running success in attracting capable people into higher education, whatever their background or circumstances, and helping them to achieve their potential.
This is the third year in a row the University has ranked in the top 20 of the publication’s unique social inclusion list – but the first time it has achieved the University of the Year for social inclusion title.
Last year, the University opened a new School of Medicine with the specific intention of attracting a more diverse intake into the medical profession.
Sunderland is one of a handful of universities where more than 60% of the intake are the first in their family to go to university and more than 98% are educated in non-selective state schools.
