    • About Stockton & Middlesbrough

      Way up in the North East, rubbing shoulders with famous neighbours of Newcastle and Sunderland, sit Middlesbrough and Stockton-on-Tees, dominating the Teesside region.

      Home to the Teesside University the area offers reminders of the industrial origins of contemporary Britain, right on the doorstep of the North Yorkshire Moors and some stunning coastline. 

      The towns in Teesside are not known for their architectural beauty, and it’s true to say that the cities up here cannot compare to southern institutions like Bath and Bristol for civil splendour. However, this far north the area has plenty to offer the prospective student, boasting a fierce local pride, welcoming community and a buzzing nightlife... That’s without even mentioning the academic benefits – which with massive multi-million pound investment, including £100 million spent on the city campus alone, bringing great facilities for sports science, media and digital technologies in particular. 

      Students enjoy a tasty nightlife in Middlesbrough, and the varied population brings a great range of flavour and cuisine to life in the city.
