The School of Education has provided so much support in addition to the excellent course and allowed me to develop a clear idea of my future career path.
Studying in the School of Education at the University of Sheffield for me is like a dream come true. Since I am a High School English teacher in my country, Indonesia, I have been dreaming of learning English as well as studying education in the UK. I am really grateful to have been given this golden opportunity to meet many friends from many countries, to learn about language and education from great lecturers, to get support from the staff, lecturers and everyone here who had made my time studying here wonderful and valuable. My time in the School of Education has been the best time of my life.
