Non I can think of.

15-04-2009 The University of Sunderland has changed over the years from being a student and now to an employee. Although previous reviewers have stated their bad times I am going to tell you about the good things on offer. The University has a wide range of course with some excellent accolades...

I graduated from Sunderland University just over 2 years back with a 2:1 in Media Studies - in spite of the university rather than because of it! Student Support were incredibly helpful, but the School of Arts, Design and (lack of) Communications and the Estates Department (who run the car parks)...

Diabolical Administrative Staff

I went to the University of Sunderland because of the excellent IT facilities in the computing school. I graduated with a HND in computing after initially joining to read BSc Economics and Computing. I feel I must point out that each school is different and that my review only reflects the...

My decision to come to Sunderland University is one I very much regret. The information I was given regarding my course was untrue and was used at the time of my application to make the university seem more appealing. I hear many of my fellow students complain of having the same experience. In...

Not much

Everything

Well where do i start. Probably with DONT COME HERE. The university itself doesn't really have much going for it. I did social work, loads of lectures got cancelled and to be honest most of them were pointless. They'll tell you anything to get you into the uni then will let you down big time. I...

Metro to Newcastle, Library is good

Sunderland, horrible place, Useless administration...

The Murray Library is good and the staff really helpful. BUT, Hopeless Administration, expect over two months before you are registered! Late student loan, but expect denial, despite the evidence, from faculty staff. Don't be fooled by posters or some modern buildings. The Students union...

I went to Sunderland University for health sciences. The course was pharmacology. The people, both students and staff were very friendly and supportive. The accomodation was brilliant and the nightlife varied (Newcastle was great too!). Sunderland as a place was in the process of regeneration and...

I graduated from the University of Sunderland in July 2009 and really enjoyed my time there. I studied BA (hons) business and marketing management and would highly recommend the course to prospective students interested in this discipline. My lecturers were all very intelligent individuals (some...

“Don't go there”

published 15/08/2000

None whatsoever

too many to list

I went to Sunderland Uni last year and lived there for just 3 days before leaving. The place stinks big style. To get to the college campus you have to cross this giant bridge with drunks called Macca and Dreadlock (one giant dreadlock) hanging off it shouting absurd gestures at the ducks and...

The University is well situated right in the middle of Sunderland with the nearby cities of Durham and Newcastle only a short train ride away. The pubs and clubs are over-shadowed by Newcastle but if you know where to go its agreat night out (what more could any perspective student want???) The...

Friendly charming city university

The reputation of the area which is ill deserved.

I did an honours degree in Social Sciences at Sunderland University and qualified in 1986. I have to profess bias because i lived in the area for most of my life but that having said it is a friendly small town with lots to do on an evening and good union bars (most important for the average...

I graduated from Sunderland uni 4 years ago, and after recently completing my masters at Manchester I deffinatly preferred Sunderland. Better facilities, much more organised generally, all the university building and halls are close together so it saves you a fortune of bus fares. It is a medium...

This University ruined my life, don't let it ruin yours. The lecturers are dim, late, lazy. The administration is infuriatingly bad, nobody takes responsibility for anything. I worked hard, through my heart and soul into my degree and all I got back was one cock-up after another. It should be...
