Case Study

Yara Aslan

PGCE Early Years Teaching (DL)

Support from friendly staff while studying a distance learning International PGCE inspired Yara Aslan to travel from Kuwait to Sunderland to study her Masters at the University of Sunderland.

The support I received from the University of Sunderland was amazing. I wouldn’t have gone anywhere other than Sunderland to complete my Masters. I felt like all of my tutors on the PGCE course were so supportive. I’ve had the opportunity to experience being a distance learner and a full-time student at the University of Sunderland and I must say that the level of education that I’ve received has been beyond exceptional. The support from everyone at the University, including the continuous support from tutors and module leaders, has made my experience worthwhile.

Sunderland has so much to offer: state-of-the-art facilities, friendly lecturers and an amazing social scene. My first year was better than I ever expected. The staff were really helpful and one of the best parts was getting to socialise and meet people from all over the world. Sunderland is a safe place for students, and I haven’t met one tutor that hasn’t been supportive. Anytime I’ve got a question I send an email and I always get a response. My tutors from my PGC are no longer teaching me, but if I need something they’re there to help. Everyone is so helpful. I love it.”
