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.

I liked this University. A good location. Wide range of societies and encouragement to create your own. Many oppportunities for students to work and volunteer.

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
