The course was not what I expected, but it was great! It includes many practical courses, which also provides me with a direction for future employment. But I wasn’t very interested in the first semester.View more
Nice professers and nice colleges. I am also very happy to participate in society activities(one of our module need us to take part in the society and do observing). I am really enjoyed this year. 🥰🥰View more
Teachers were sound, knew their stuff and made lots of friends. Had a good load of pubs great memories and 10/10 would do it again if I could, would recommend this uni to all my mates and will send my children here!View more
My experience at the University of Sheffield was enjoyable from start to finish. I received support from staff that helped me enrol in my programme, obtain my visa to have the right to study in the UK and give me all the information necessary that allowed me to find adequate accommodation. The PhD programme at my department is one of the best in the world and I was impressed with the world impact that takes place at the university. I was able to attend lectures and talk with key academics in my area, and these interactions allowed me to enhance my own research project. The only thing I would suggest is that the University should standardise the activities and expectations that supervisors and PhD students need to comply with. The University of Sheffield is international and I was able to meet people from all over the world. I think that my experience and the degree I obtained in Sheffield have also opened a lot of doors in terms of job prospects.View more
The University does an exceptional job of providing genuine and valuable knowledge to students, delivered by knowledgeable and capable professors, with an outstanding campus and resources.
I studied English and Linguistics at the University and found the course content to be engaging and useful, with any support and guidance both in and out of the classroom easy to access. The student union is the best in the country, a wonderful place to spend time, connect with others who share your passions and find all the resources you might need. The various libraries have fantastic collections, with new books easy to request, and with most of them available digitally for easy access. They also provide a great place to study.
The University has a large international student body, with international study opportunities, and language courses available to everybody. Plus, there are societies for every possible interest and activity.View more
Studying modern languages and cultures at The University of Sheffield allows you to combine up to 3 languages from an extensive list that the uni has to offer. I loved the fact that I could tailor my degree to what I wanted it to be. I chose to go down the Hispanic studies route in the first year, studying Spanish, Portuguese and Catalan. I realised in the second year that three was too much for me, so I dropped Catalan. This is a prime example of how you can personalise this degree programme, and I love the freedom of it. The cultural aspect of the degree is extensive and varied, ranging from history and literature to art and politics, and I thoroughly believe that studying different cultures creates a more well-rounded, open-minded person.
The city itself, and of course I am biased, is a great city to be a student in. I always felt welcome and it soon started to feel like home. Now, when I am away from Sheffield, I miss it, and I cannot wait to go back.
The student’s union is rated the best in the UK, and has been for years, and I completely stand by this. Cafe’s, bars, a nightclub, places to work, pray, shop. It has everything you need! Not to mention the student support teams for wellbeing and careers offices.
The university is incredibly international and diverse, and international students are well-integrated into the campus, and are made to feel like they are at home. There are all sorts of societies that you can join, and I know that many international students found societies for people from their own countries to help them settle in to the new environment. Sheffield has hundreds of societies, all of which are a brilliant way to make friends.
The one problem I have faced at uni that has caused disruption to my degree, aside from Covid, has been the strikes. However, these take place at pretty much every uni in the UK, so this is not something that negatively sets Sheffield apart.View more
Studying Sociology with Criminology has been a fantastic experience introducing me not only to the world of crime theory but to a world of opportunities in relation to career opportunities. If it wasn’t for studying the program I’m on I don’t think I would be in the position I’m in now. Sheffield University has been considerably good at delivering the course via blackboard and through face to face lectures however if there was anything I would change it would be an increase in contact hours.View more
The best thing about Sheffield is it is easy to adjust to. When I moved to Sheffield for the first time, I was extremely nervous and worried, but the university offered me much support to help me adjust. On the study, students may have a meeting with our tutor weekly to discuss study progress. I can express any ideas and gain recognition from tutors. If I need some help, I would send emails to my tutor and get replies quickly. Importantly, each tutor would give me feedback after submitting assignments. Furthermore, there are plenty of job opportunities including placements, part-time jobs and internships. You could gain helps and guidance from career advisers, containing profile building and interview performance support. Besides, graduates can also enjoy many services for up to 3 years, such as library admission and job centre support.
Sometimes I felt stressed when several assignments were arranged tightly, but eventually, I handled them well and got a great grade. Otherwise, I hope the university can offer more scholarship places to students.
In terms of student life, my first impression of Sheffield is cheap in price and convenient for living, compared with most cities in the UK. Students are satisfied with life here. There are many restaurants from different countries, so students can eat food from their own country when they feel homesick. In particular, we could enjoy our meals in the canteens with different styles or cafes on campus. In my mind, our university pays attention to education rather than merely focusing on grades. For example, the student union offers many activities to students, like a day trip, and classes with hobby development. Students are happy to study at the University of Sheffield.
In my opinion, our university is very international. Internationalism is put into the heart of everything at Sheffield. The University of Sheffield is engaged in numerous research projects with international impact and has successful research partnerships with leading universities around the world. Besides, we are able to make many friends from different backgrounds.
Through my MA study at the University of Sheffield, I have learned a great deal of valuable knowledge and skills. I reach my full potential, understand what my strengths are, and have a clear career framework. All of these cannot separate from the school. I really recommend our university to others.
Given that I spent an excellent year and a few months at The University of Sheffield, I’m certainly biased in my judgment. I got a bachelor’s degree in Psychology, one of the country’s best programs from this university. I was a member of the Shrimps Improv Comedy Society, where everyone was really kind, and some of my closest friends came from there. Several events during orientation week helped me establish friends quickly. The university is very multicultural.View more
It was terrible for 99 per cent of students throughout their first year. But the next years have been completely normal and, in comparison, a really joyful experience. Sheffield University has gone to great lengths to make learning fun. There are many possibilities to attempt new extracurricular activities, as well as lots of assistance from the staff. I would strongly suggest Sheffield University to anybody seeking a vibrant social life and breathtaking scenery, as well as world-class academics and research.View more
