Working in Partnership

TyneMet works in partnership with the University of Sunderland. All of our Foundation Degrees and teaching qualifications are awarded by the University, which means that although you study with us, your certification will be granted by the University.

This partnership also gives you a number of extra benefits including:

  • Guaranteed progression routes to the final year of an Honours Degree
  • Use of the University's learning resources
  • Study locally at TyneMet College with the additional support of the experience and knowledge of the University
  • The opportunity to participate in the University's graduation ceremony

We also have our Higher Education Gateway at TyneMet College's Coast Road Campus, run in partnership with the University of Sunderland, where our Sunderland University Liaison Officer is based to discuss ideas, provide information on specific courses and deliver practical help about your future.
