The University of Sunderland is a British university with a global footprint. We have campuses in Sunderland in the north-east of England, London and Hong Kong. In addition, we have excellent transnational partnerships with institutions in over a dozen countries across the world.
I am delighted that the International School of Management and Technology (ISMT) has become our latest partner and that it will be recruiting its first intake of students studying for Sunderland degrees in October 2021. Like the University of Sunderland, ISMT has an excellent reputation and we see great benefits for students in this new arrangement.
The University of Sunderland was recently shortlisted as United Kingdom University of the Year, something that speaks to the range and quality of our work. That will now be available to ISMT students in a number of places across Nepal. So, we look forward to welcoming those who will study for our degrees in subjects as diverse as computer systems engineering, business management, and tourism and hospitality.
The ties of friendship between the UK and Nepal run long and deep. It is that spirit that will, undoubtedly, make the relationship between the University and Sunderland and ISMT a great success, now and in the future.
