What to expect from the interview process for the Social Work degree!

Wednesday, March 18th, 2015

Hello everyone!

Recently I’ve chatted to a few applicants who have upcoming interviews for the Social Work degree at University of Sunderland. I remember the knot in my stomach when I opened my letter to read that I not only had an interview to prepare for, but a written test, AND a group discussion. I felt positively sick, so if you felt the same then you won’t be alone!

As mentioned in the video failure to prepare, is preparing to fail! Please plan your journey to the interview, take along with you all of the required paperwork and do your research.

If you have any other questions at all, nothing is too small or silly please feel free to message me.

Good Luck, if I can do it so can you 🙂

Comfort Food Recipe!

Tuesday, March 3rd, 2015

Hey everyone!

When I moved into halls of residence one thing I really missed was home cooked food. My nana used to send up batches of frozen meals she had made for me, and I mastered how to make one of them last year which was Panacalty! Now apparently this is a Hartlepool, or very local term as no one seems to know what it is but when I say it is called Corned Beef Hash people usually know what I’m talking about!

Pros of Panacalty:

– Only requires 4 ingredients, so it is cheap to make!

– If you forget about it in the oven it won’t burn, but I wouldn’t recommend going out of the house and leaving the oven on in any case!

– It can be frozen to eat another time!

– Your family will be impressed that you are having a hot meal, which isn’t served in a pizza box!

Cons of Panacalty:

– Not suitable for vegetarians, but im sure you could adapt the recipe and try out a vegetarian alternative!

– You will have to share with your flat mates because they will all want a bowl!

Serving Suggestion: Pour into a bowl, grab a couple of slices of bread & butter and tuck in 🙂

Enjoy, Lau x
