Access to Higher Education (Nursing).

I have a passion for care.

The college’s amazing reviews and success rate.

The tutors were amazing and helpful, and meeting great people and lifelong friends.

I could always be open and honest with them without judgement. They were always there to help you with personal as well as education problems.

The success rate of Sunderland College is amazing and the stories you hear about previous students.

If you don’t think you can do it, remember you can do anything you set your mind to.

I am currently a nursing assistant at the Queens Elizabeth Hospital and going into a nursing associate programme.

It gave me an insight into my chosen career path, and helps you understand how to get started.

Amazing staff and amazing students! Can’t fault it!
