“I had heard that Sunderland’s courses in Pharmacy were really good, and having compared them to others I decided Sunderland was better as it was affordable and it would take less time to graduate. When I arrived in January it was cold! But having come from Newcastle I liked it a lot; it was green and natural and I found it easy to settle in. My teachers were really nice; they made sure every student understood what was being taught. I had 7-8 students in my class and the teacher gave us group work to discuss between each other, presentations and seminars, which was a beneficial way to learn as we have to research by ourselves. My English is much better than before I started the programme. I enjoy the University gym and used the library a lot, which is open 24 hours a day.”

where it can be double that. I chose Sunderland because it gave more advantages – the cost of living is low and the environment is conducive to learning. It’s not a big city so I can focus more without getting distracted. My teachers were very helpful, they kept asking if I had any difficulties and about my well-being, so I felt very at home with them. The teaching style is very different, there was more self-study. We had lots of discussion in class and were encouraged to communicate. My class was pretty mixed with different nationalities so I learnt about lots of other countries and beliefs, values and cultures, which was very interesting.”

“I heard a lot about the UK and the quality of its education so decided I wanted to study here. The teachers at ONCAMPUS were very helpful and welcoming and they taught me how to study more independently, and I understand the importance of time management, research and report writing. I learned a lot from the mix of cultures and can now even write my name in Chinese! Sunderland has some good places to spend your free time, like the bowling alley, football pitch and cinema, but if I want to go to a bigger city centre I can travel to Newcastle very easily.”

“Sunderland is calm and friendly and I found it easy to settle in. The teachers at ONCAMPUS would joke around in class so they were never boring and they used Moodle so that we could review the class notes afterwards. I felt really challenged at ONCAMPUS. I learned how to research properly, how to make my work look professional, how to source. We would get homework to help improve our research skills and our knowledge of subjects and then give presentations in class, which made me nervous but improved my courage!”

“My first impression of Sunderland was that the people were friendly and that it was nice and quiet. Good for study, but close enough to Newcastle for a night out. The ONCAMPUS induction week offered lots of activities to help us settle in and see the facilities of the University including CitySpace and the gym for example. Living in Sunderland itself is not too costly and good value for money, and I tend to spend my spare time with friends going out. My time at ONCAMPUS was a really good experience and set me up in a number of ways for progression to the University of Sunderland. Study skills such as research projects I had only done once before, helped show me exactly the sort of detail I should be including.”

The teachers at ONCAMPUS would help us in everything that we needed, personally or academically, and our one-to-one sessions were the opportunity to talk about any specific issues.

“ONCAMPUS has good teachers with experience of how to manage international students who know how to make learning more interesting. The learning style is totally different; we had seminars (which I’ve never had in my home country) which meant we were prepared (for this style of teaching) before we went to university. I used Moodle a lot. For me it was a great source as we could go back and review the notes from class. Studying with different nationalities allowed us to exchange ideas and share thoughts on cultures and social life. Sunderland is good for students because of its low cost of living, and for me ONCAMPUS had a positive effect because of the teachers and their experience, which gave me a good education.”

“There is little distraction in Sunderland, which is good for me. It was easy to settle in, find my way around and make friends with students of different nationalities. My teachers are helpful, open to anything you want to ask. The style of teaching is different as they want you to understand and give your own answer rather than repeating exactly what they said, which is a much better way to learn.” 27

“My teachers were friendly and very helpful and class sizes averaged about 10–15 students. The ONCAMPUS programme helped me deal with pressure and so I was better prepared to progress to Year 2. Sunderland is definitely more student friendly in terms of living costs. It’s also very homely; I feel like if I had just gone for uni straight it would have been hard for me to adjust. At ONCAMPUS they keep asking you if you are OK so I feel like it has helped me a lot.” 29

Additional documentation may be required depending on the course. Our Admissions team will contact you should this be the case.

2

Our Central Admissions team will review your application. We will send you an offer letter which will list any outstanding conditions. We will remove any conditions that have already been met. If we think the course is not right for you, we will suggest an alternative. If we have any queries about your application, we will contact you for further information.

3

To accept your place on the course you will need to meet all the remaining conditions, including payment of the deposit/ registration fee or proof of government sponsorship. We can only confirm your place once all conditions have been met, although once the deposit is paid we will hold a place for you. Please note that if you require a visa to study with us, you may need to provide additional evidence to comply with the visa regulations in the UK. These are the requirements of the government and not of ONCAMPUS. Your assistance in meeting these requirements is much appreciated.

Once you have paid your deposit and met all the conditions of offer, we will confirm your place and send you a Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) or a Confirmation of Enrolment (CoE) if you do not need a CAS.
