Postgraduate Reviews of Courses at University of Sunderland

Firstly, my interview time was wrong so I turned up to my interview for placement LATE. Great start and now my details have been hacked in a security breach. The organisation of the university is horrendous. I know a student who did not get the bus pass as promised and had to pay a lot of money for travel after consulting the university for months. Poor. Poor. Poor. Would not reccowmend. read full review
The experience has been disappointing. I chose thia University because of the high reputation it has for it's education courses and unfortunately it has been a disappointment. I did not get a mainstream placement until after Christmas, so it is just as well i enjoyed my first one as that is now the area I would like to go an work in. Many people didn't even get a placement till mid December or even the start of January, so be prepared if you choose to apply. I feel like I should have learned ao much more than what I did during university lectures yet learned far more at placement. For example during my second placement i learned that PEE paragraphs aren't really the best for top set groups as they dont stretch them enough, yet PEE,PEAL,PEEE are all explored and seen as the main way to write in subject studies sessions.
The assignments haven't been particularly useful either. The first assignment was a 1000 word proposal and there was far more support on that than there was for the actual 4000 word case study that followed.
Overall my experience hasn't been as positive as I was hoping it would be. read full review
