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!
