The University of Sheffield is a prestigious institution which delivers invaluable education to students. Lecturers are quite friendly and generally go the extra mile to ensure students are happy with the modules. Courses are taught using varied means which include traditional lectures with visuals (which are always recorded!), tutorials, guest lectures from professionals in the industry, site visits, and hands-on projects. The university has lots of international students from all over the world and is literally bursting with culture. It is also very student-focused and thus provides various services such as the Student Advice Centre, The Nightline etc. to ensure students are comfortable, safe and their mental health is top-notch. There are also services to help students secure placements, internships, and part-time jobs while studying and upon graduation. Lastly and most importantly, the social life is fantastic! Its Student Union encompasses loads of societies, clubs, bars, and nightclubs, with events running throughout the academic year so you can’t possibly be bored! They even have ‘give-it-a-go sessions’ where students can try exciting activities like scuba diving! The city is student-friendly, with even friendlier locals and beautiful parks; the peak district is a must see! On the downside there are hills EVERYWHERE but hey! You can save up on gym memberships and go for a run up the hill 😉
The University of Sheffield is a brilliant institution in a very student friendly city. The staff are usually involved in active research which means that you get cutting edge teaching, but also it really feels like a place which cares for its students. The student union is amazing, there is great support in place if you are struggling and there is a really friendly buzz to the campus. There is loads to get involved with both academically and socially and it is a really brilliant location to experience student life. Downsides are it is really hilly, and generally cold outside.
The university is amazing! The students union is the best in the country for the last 10 years and it shows – they offer so many amazing events, nights out and services. The student support is excellent and the library is one of the best in the country.
The teaching quality varies from subject to subject but I have mostly positive things to say about my department. Yes there could be some improvements but that’s always the case.
