Student Profile

Anna Edwards

I chose to stay at Sheffield for postgraduate study because I already had amazing and helpful tutors who I knew could support me through my Master's degree.

The MA programme has really allowed me to grow as a person and as a historian, giving me the opportunity to revisit topics I loved during my A-level study and undergraduate degree and discover new ones, all within a supportive and inclusive environment.

The research seminars have been a great way to meet historians from other universities and gain experience of what it's like at an academic conference. My time as an academic rep has really added to my experience of the MA programme, staff really do listen to what students have to say, and I feel as if I've really had an opportunity to make a difference.

As an equality, diversity and inclusion rep in the history department, I've also had the opportunity to see behind the scenes and witness the genuine effort staff make to gather and respond to feedback about how to make the university more inclusive.
