Student Profile(s)

Quynh Thi Pham

The University of Sheffield provides me with an inspiring and supportive learning environment. I am given the opportunities to pursue my own interests and supported unconditionally by my lecturers who inspire, motivate and enlighten me.

Paz Rice Rivera

I chose to study in Sheffield because of the duality of the MA, which includes modules related to Applied Linguistics as well as English teaching. Since I am an English teacher in Chile, both areas are relevant to my professional growth.
