Cost of living - online session

Join us for this online session to explore the topic of affordability at the University of Sunderland.

Cost of living has become a phrase we’re all aware of and it continues to bring great concern to families and young people looking to make their way in the world. For some, this means juggling these concerns with being a full-time student.
