BSc (Hons) Psychology

Tour of Priestman Building

Friday, October 25th, 2013

I really want to show all of you around the place that I study each week. I love Sunderland University and I really want to share that with all of you guys. So this week, I’ve enlisted the help of some friends and we’ve created a video for you so you can see what it’s like here. It’s really important when you decide on which University to go to, you must be absolutely sure that it’s the one for you. After all, you will be spending a lot of time there and for some, it may be the first time you move away from home.

This video aims to guide you around campus. We have a really friendly atmosphere and hopefully that comes across well. If you have any questions, please feel free to ask and I will be happy to help. Finally, I’d just like to say a massive thankyou to everyone involved in the making of the video. You were all a great help! Enjoy the video!! 😀

Extra Curricular Activities

Sunday, October 20th, 2013

Hi everyone. Hope you are all well. I’ve decided this week to feature one of my good friends, Harry Scott, in my blog. He studies drama alongside myself but also gets involved in things outside of university. One of which is refereeing and I thought it would be nice to show you all. Even if you study a certain subject, you can still get involved in anything you want outside of the lecture room. In this video, Harry explains how he got involved in refereeing and why it’s a great thing to be a part of!!

Music Rehearsal (3)

Monday, October 14th, 2013

Here is the third and final music rehearsal video!! I’m sorry for the delay but I hope that you have enjoyed the videos as much as we have enjoyed performing for you guys. We hope to get some footage from a gig in the near future!! I always say to anyone looking to come to university, it’s so important to get involved in activities outside of your weekly lectures. Me and Anth meet up regularly every week and have been doing so for a while. It’s a great way to relax and just enjoy yourself and the result is we both get to do something we love. You don’t have to be on a drama or performing arts course either, music is fantastic even just for fun. So yeah, get involved guys!!

Music Rehearsal (2)

Saturday, October 12th, 2013

Here is the second video of the three being posted. Just one more to come tomorrow!! Remember, if you have any questions at all, you can comment here on this blog, or message me on facebook and I will do my very best to help. Enjoy guys!! 😀

Match Day – Sunderland vs Manchester United

Monday, October 7th, 2013

Lives Online gave me the fantastic opportunity to go and see Sunderland play at the Stadium of Light this weekend against Manchester United. For those of you that are looking to come to Sunderland University, you have to go and see a live game when you can. The atmosphere is absolutely fantastic and it beats watching it on the television hands down!! There were just over 45,000 people in attendance and the sound around the arena when everyone is singing is mesmerising. To give you all a small taster of what it’s like to go to the game, I’ve made a small video with a few clips and pictures. Hope you all enjoy!!
