Meet the Team

The International Office has been set up to deal with all international matters within the Sunderland College. We are here to provide assistance to all international students and attend to your well being from the moment you apply to the college until you leave.

We’re your first point of contact for help and information and whenever possible will assist you immediately or make arrangements to make sure you get help and advice from another source within the college.

We subscribe to the major organisations that support international students in the UK such as the British Council and UKCISA – The Council for International Student Affairs.  Please contact us if you require any support from these organisations, and we can supply you with details.

We can also advise you on all aspects of Visa and Immigration procedure and we have a dedicated member of staff who can assist you with your visa extension while you are here in the UK.

If you need help or advice please call or email us between 8.30 and 16.30 UK time, Monday to Friday.
