Our student ambassadors are the best people to tell you about what studying at University of Sheffield is like.
University of Sheffield has grown in reputation and size to become one of the UK’s leading universities with a global reputation for teaching and research. As part of the UK Russell Group, the University is a premier-league, research-led institution with over 27,000 students including more than 7,000 international students from 143 countries and over 7,000 members of staff.
I chose to study at Sheffield because of its good international rankings and the scholarship I was awarded. After completing my MA I would like to stay in the UK to acquire professional experience and then return to work in my home country. Urban studies is all about social research, I see myself working with communities to improve the physical and social conditions of urban areas.
