Student Profile(s)


The decision of choosing Data Communication as my MSc course stemmed from my curiosity for the operating mechanism of communication systems and the insights of the communication technology playing an even more vital part in our life in the near future. The University of Sheffield is highly regarded within industry, which attracted me to apply for a place to pursue my postgraduate education.

I enjoyed the teaching and learning process of every module I took on and was blown away by the well-organised teaching schedule and swift assistance both from the professors and the department when any problem was encountered. The staff of the department were most helpful during my time studying at Sheffield. It was always a pleasure to communicate with them. My suggestion for future fellow students is that do not hesitate to ask question and do not leave a problem unsolved. There are many people to turn to when having questions or doubts, including the department support team, your personal tutor and student life mentor allocated to you and usually they will reach out to you before you reach out to them. So, plan ahead and ask away, I am sure you will get a satisfying answer.
