No, it's pointless. For a start we aren't taught the disciplines. So far we've had vanilla HTML/CSS/JS and C#. I'm over a year in, and we've not discussed cybersecurity and as far as forensics go, the labs are broken and the software not shown to us. We have mainly avoided important subjects, and online teaching is dire, bad connection and just reading out the slides provided. I've been let down a...

I haven’t been approached with many social opportunities as of yet. The staff are helpful and understanding, as well as inspiring in that most of them are workers in the practical field as well as teachers. Meaning they give specific and helpful advice.

It's a good university to go to with some great results, but it is lacking in its student facilties such as the students Union. I'm from a different part of the country but the university there doesn't do my course so came here, at that university there is a massive students union building with restaurants, bars, clubs a supermarket. All the students Union has at Sunderland is a couple of offices and that's it. Academics are really friendly and helpful as well as other university staff. Good accommodation choices for new students too and a wide range of societies.

A pretty good place with decent enough food, friendly staff and nice Wifi. I did the history course and almost all my lecturers were nice and helpful. Unfortunately, because the vice chancellor David Bell is a terrible person who has no idea what he's doing, the History course no longer exists. Still, it's a nice place. Not the best but not the worst either.

Its a complete waste of time. I completed my final year project and they have not marked it since 2017. Reasons are that they never listened to our complaints. Supervisors and staffs are very lazy to communicate and lazy to solve our problems. I have list of issues with University of Sunderland. I have screenshots of their email, whatsapp communication, word of mouth and receipts to prove how careless they are. They want money only.

I should not consider Sunderland as a city it’s more a village and people will act like villagers as well, for me it’s not a bother but if you like clubbing and going out you have to spend some more money going somewhere else like newcastle and keep In mind that the metro isn’t in your favour, the university has some free activities that are interesting but the fact that they are put in the middle of the week makes it difficult for every student to attend. To be honest I didn’t like Sunderland at all and I can’t wait to leave but the university worth’s the effort but make sure you have friends to spend some time with cause there aren’t many things you can do if you don’t like theatre or casino games. Also I find it difficult to find a job here you can work in a factory close in the city but if you like something else is better to look somewhere else cause the payment can’t be good for a student especially if you are an international student there is a procedure that takes a month

Spent £4.500 on nothing so far. Learning has stopped since enrolment. I do not recommend anyone does an IFY here. It's just a money spinner. I'm hoping that learning commences next year, or I'll be requiring a refund, or lawsuit.The pointless tasks aren't teaching me a thing. For instance....a project worth a lot of points. Design an app that will never be built, for imaginary people who will never exist!? You work that one out! Linear 'learning' models sold as cycles, and time wasting exercises.I could've been SISCO certified by now if I was in charge of spending my funding.

Sunderland is a fantastic university. I loved my time here, in the Psychology department. I only graduated last year and I intend on going back for further study. The Psychology department has the most supportive and thorough lecturers I have ever met. It was most definitely the best experience of education I have ever had. I would recommend Sunderland university to my family, my friends and anyone who cared to listen. Donna.

Don't even bother applying for this uni, the facilities will screw you, every single minute they crash! Got back up? don't worry because their Macs/PC will do everything it can to destroy your backups too. I have failed my submissions because of the facilities and sent them an email about the problems. After paying your tuition fee they just won't give a damn about you. Extremely disappointed with this university and I REGRET COMING HERE

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.

WiFi can be a pain in the butt, however I really like the city. Transport is good.

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.

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
