I think the course is set up really well, with modules from lecturers who are top in their field. The department offered me lots of support whenever I have needed it. My modules have been challenging but interesting, with a range of teaching options and assessment options. I have really taken advantage of everything the city of Sheffield has to offer; from great bars and restaurants, street food, shopping and theatres, there really is something for everybody.

I decided to apply to Sheffield as it was ranked in the top 50 departments in the world and it stood up there in the Russell group for me.

My experience of being a student here has been exceptionally good. Being an international student you get overwhelming support right from the word go as you land at the airport and various teams from the university are there to welcome you.

The students’ union has been ranked number 1 in the UK for the past few years on the basis of surveys carried out on student satisfaction, and throughout your studies you get various incentives and discounts from the union.

The large number of international students in the university make you feel at home because you meet people from various cultures and backgrounds and you get international exposure. It is one of the best experiences of my life to meet people from various nationalities sitting on the same table and discussing our studies. It is a tremendous experience to study in Sheffield.

The teaching is very well organised and every module is taught based on the latest possible techniques by very experienced academic staff who make things much easier and simple for the students to understand.

Lectures are recorded and uploaded online so they’re easy to access and helpful especially for students who may have not understood elements due to language barriers.

The university tries to facilitate its students in the best possible ways by providing extraordinary study spaces that are easily accessible and spacious enough to accommodate everyone. Many buildings like the Diamond and the Information Commons are open 24 hours a day, have free internet and computers, and there are also silent study areas. The libraries are easily accessible and they have enough books in them to accommodate all the students.

Sheffield as a city is lovely and a peaceful place to live. The weather here has always got that surprising element! From a student’s perspective it has got everything; all types of foods for all nationalities are easily available at very affordable prices. Travel to places like London or Manchester is easy, quick and relatively low cost. Lastly, Sheffield is great for cyclists as they tend to enjoy going uphill a lot in this beautiful terrain!

Nilakshan Balasubramaniam

When I was searching for good universities around the world to pursue my masters, I came across the University of Sheffield. It is recognised world-wide and has a good academic record. I chose to study water engineering because the world needs more water engineers, especially in developing countries like Sri Lanka, where I am from.

The course content was set up in a way that teaches the students what they will need in industry right now and in the future. The course content was challenging and interesting. The facilities in the University were outstanding. A student will get all kinds of help from the academic staff and support staff of the University. The tutors were friendly and helpful, which I loved the most.

The city of Sheffield is a nice place to live and it has something for everybody. It is surrounded by places of scenic beauty, which a nature lover will yearn for. The local people are also really friendly. Overall, I enjoyed my stay in Sheffield and was really happy with the quality education I received.

I chose the University of Sheffield because of its worldwide reputation and the high-quality research and teaching in the Department of Civil and Structural Engineering.

The tutors are very helpful and are always available for students. Students can take advantage of office hours and drop-in slots to ask questions. Tutorials are set to solve problems and give you the opportunity to communicate with other classmates, which will enrich your knowledge and learning. Students are able to access a variety of facilities. The range of engineering software provided is very helpful, as engineering students can use it to simulate and practice for different scenarios and problems.

The city of the Sheffield is very safe and green and the people here are friendly and lovely. I can walk home after a late-night of studying in the Diamond or Information Commons without worrying too much. I can enjoy lots of green spaces; the Peak District, the Winter Gardens and the Peace Gardens.

I am going back to China to find a job related to building consultancy or ‘green buildings’, because I want to make more impact on the energy saving of buildings.

Nurkhan Nurymbetov

I chose the University of Sheffield because it has a great reputation for structural engineering, recognised not only in the UK, but worldwide. Having spent a year in Sheffield, I realise how valuable my experience was for my personal and professional development.

Due to a great number of facilities the university possesses and how well thought-out and convenient they are, I was able to concentrate purely on my studies without worrying about technical difficulties. Moreover, the majority of academic staff are highly recognised professionals in their research areas, so they tend to give more in-depth information, interesting case studies or recent developments in their lectures. Therefore, when you graduate you leave with more skills than are covered in the course description. I am confident that the knowledge and skills I have gained from the university will make me a competitive employee in any engineering company.
