    Hi SoulSparkle, I'm also thinking of joining the Dance Society. But I can't find more information about it. Maybe you know more? ;] If yes, please give me links or something else

    Hello!
    Can I ask why you don't want to live in halls?

    Here is some information on halls for postgrad http://services.sunderland.ac.uk/fac...accommodation/

    I suggest if you really don't want to live in halls you contact the university to see if they can help you find a group of students to live with. You could also just google it.

    The closest accomodation would be Scotia Quay or Panns Bank, both are literally on the other side of the river from St. Peter's. Otherwise there is Clanny House and The Precinct which are a bit further away, about a 40 minute or so walk from St. Peters, over the bridge. There is a campus bus which runs frequently from the halls to all the uni buildings which is great, or there is the metro which runs every 10 minutes or so and is really reliable, you'll have no trouble whatsoever getting to uni
    I'd probably reccomend Panns Bank or Scotia Quay for accomodation considering where you are studying, however these are the two most expensive halls! You'd also be lucky to get a place in either now, those are the two that generally fill up the quickest. You'll be fine at Clanny, I'm living in Clanny just now, and I'm at St. Peters for one lecture a week, and I've never had a problem getting there

    I'm down from Scotland studying at Sunderland too

    I'm in Clanny House just now, and I love it! It's nothing fancy, but it does the job. It's the biggest halls too, so there's always someone around and something to do. I think the only halls that have ensuite is The Forge, which is a private halls and the most expensive, and Scotia Quay, which again is one of the most expensive (and I think Scotia Quay priority is usually given to MA students)

    I've been in the Precinct, but I don't know the difference between the normal ones and the premium ones... Maybe the premium ones are the refurbished ones, I'm not entirely sure. The Precinct is ok - it's liveable at least. I'm not a huge fan of it, it doesn't feel 'homely' at all - but then you do struggle to get the homely feel in halls I think! It's got breeze block walls, rather than plaster on the walls, which always seems to be an issue for me, not sure why! But at the same time, it's closer to City Campus than Clanny is... But overall I'd prefer Clanny tbh Has any of that made sense to you? I feel like I'm rambling on and talking nonsense haha...

    I'm not sure. I think you can? You'd be better checking with the University I think, my offer was my firm choice, so I could apply for my accomodation.

    Maybe best to give them a quick phone and see what's what, just so you know you've got your accomodation sorted, less stress in August when you get your exam results

    I'm from Livingston

    I am glad i found this thread ^^
    Sunderland has also answered to my application with an unconditional offer, for the degree of Pharmacy, which i accepted.
    I have also applied for accomodation at The Precinct, since it is about the same as Clanny House(from what i have heard) and it is also the closest to the campus.

    Also i would be very glad if i were to meet other students before coming to the uni

    Hi,

    I was wondering if any digital film production or media students could help me with a query I have. I was wondering whether buying a macbook pro is a necessity to the course i.e do most students who do this course purchase mac pros to work on outside of the uni environment or do they perform all their work on mac base stations in the uni.

    I don't mind spending the money on a mac pro if it's a neccesity but I would go for a cheaper windows based laptop if it wasn't a necessity.

    Thank you in advance =)
