Teesside is known for its exciting mix of industry, culture and striking scenery.
From the working docks of the Tees Estuary to the area’s vibrant towns and glorious countryside, this is a place where old and new, urban and rural, and culture and commerce converge.
Teesside University main campus is in the heart of Middlesbrough, a friendly town with all the shops, restaurants, cinemas, pubs, clubs, sports and museums you would expect – and an art gallery and bridge that are a little more surprising.
