I chose Sunderland because the campus and facilities are all new and lovely, as well as being rated one of the best psychology departments in the North East. There wasn't enough focus on what to do when we graduated before third year, meaning we have had to fend for ourselves a lot to find a graduate job. Despite this, the people and staff were fantastic.

Studying at University of Sunderland

The University of Sunderland has three campuses, two in Sunderland and one in London and is claimed to be the best new university in NE England. The community is made up of just over 17,000 students from 117 different countries and is within the top ten for safest universities with its own crime prevention team and free bus between campuses and accommodation that also runs during the night.

Every effort is made to help students to be as employable as possible when it comes to graduating. On offer are opportunities to study abroad, local work placements, volunteering in the local community plus workshops, advice on creating a CV and job searching and graduate recruitment fairs. Some students will be able to take part in the Graduate Internship Scheme - a paid job at a local business normally for a period of six months.

The cost of living in Sunderland is much lower than in towns and cities further south and with the campuses being within walking distance of each other and the city centre, students can have a much below national average budget for the academic year.

Social life at the University of Sunderland mainly centres around The North Shore venue in the Students' Union. Over the years many well known artists have performed there including Arctic Monkeys, Ne-Yo, JLS and Girls Aloud. The North Shore also houses a theatre, roof garden, Bar and Grill. There are several student award winning media associations to get involved with; Spark FM, SportsByte magazine covering sport across the region and student magazine, 'Degrees North'.



There are 50 clubs and societies to get involved with and a huge range of sporting activities whether you want to watch, coach or play. Over recent years millions have been invested into the facilities available under CitySpace. The building is home to a climbing wall, catering, sports hall and gym. Nearby in Sunderland there are many other great facilities to make use of; an Olympic swimming pool, Ski Slope, Marine Activities Centre, Tennis Centre accredited by the LTA and an athletics track.

Sunderland is known as a party town. It has many pubs, clubs, bars and restaurants and larger venues that see some of the biggest acts pass through on national tours. The city is also known as an inventive one, and over the past ten years has generated massive value from its research and development investments making it an ideal place for fresh new graduate start-ups.

Zero support from useless teaching and reluctant 'support' staff. Don't believe their lies. Don't go here.

The course I attended needed improvements in my opinion. I personally think Sunderland is a nice city. Some of the services offered by the university can be a little expensive considering it is supposedly one of the cheapest parts of the country.

save up, go across the tyne and study at norhumbria or newcastle. there is no money at the uni, no atmosphere about the place especially at st peters campus, the student union building is non-existent (go check out leeds' SU building in comparison), was told that grades above 75 are scrutinized. best things? one library is 24/7, there's a greggs at city campus, city life (drinks/rent) is cheap.

Only reason the SU isn't so good is because the social venue is at St Peter's campus only and it's a bit out dated. However, the services they provide are really good from what I've heard. The rest of the university is fab apart from the login system for wifi can be a pain to connect to but once your on its fine
