Thinking of heading to the university of Sunderland and have a few questions? I'm happy to help!
I'm heading into 3rd year Animation and Games Art plus a foundation year means I have 4yrs under my belt come September.

If I can't answer your question then I'll ask someone who can!

This is a lovely thread, thank you. I've moved it into the university of sunderland forum.

To get the ball rolling... what is the best thing and the worst thing about studying in Sunderland?

Thank you for moving it! I had no idea where to put it.
I just thought it might help any new or returning students settle on a university a little bit better.

So, the best thing I would say (and if I could only pick one!) is definitely the lecturers, although I might be a bit biased. My lecturers are Chris McQuillan, Ros Allen, Nick Lewis, Neil Ewins and Mark Rogerson. They are five of the most patient, helpful people I've ever come across in my education. All the university lecturers I've met so far have been lovely and happy to help even if they don't teach your subject. Never be afraid to ask for help.

The worst thing I'd say is the choice of accommodation, they're all quite far away from the campuses and I ended up moving to private housing because of it. The university has done it's best to combat this with a free bus system available to students but sometimes you don't want to be trudging to the bus stop in a gale and pouring rain.

I hope this helped!

Hey there! I’m not on the fine art course personally but we share a lot of the same lecturers I believe. You’ll deal with a lot of mixed media and the main focus will be on traditional art (drawn/painted by hand as opposed to digital) if you have a more specific question about the fine art course I’m sure I can get a better answer for you if that’s ok?

Not good. Poorly managed and organised, lecturers do not communicate. Other universities are better for it, it hasn’t been offered for long at Sunderland. The accommodations etc at Sunderland are awful too, my accommodation is disgusting and being homeless was honestly better. I’d avoid

Thank you for your honest opinion, I’m sorry I took too long getting the answer off a mental health nurse

You can always offer it back up again to my knowledge! If you think Sunderland isn’t for you, I’d recommend looking into Northumbrias mental health nursing course. I’ve heard good things
