Study in Middlesbrough

Middlesbrough is a vibrant town packed with a great choice of shops, restaurants, bars, nightclubs and entertainment venues. There is a lot to see and do, from award-winning parks to internationally renowned art galleries and great sports facilities.

Middlesbrough is Teesside’s largest town and has great transport links to Newcastle and Sunderland in the North, as well as York and Leeds in the south. If you choose to live here, you’ll be just a short commute to the beautiful North East coastline and North Yorkshire moors. On your doorstep, you can visit Teesside’s iconic Transporter Bridge or take a stroll around Saltholme, a picturesque nature reserve nestled in Teesside's industrial landscape.
