Student Profile

Bradley Ashley

"I chose to do a masters degree as I thoroughly enjoyed my field of study, namely mathematics, but I felt there was so much more to learn. The course here at Sheffield offered a great flexibility of modules, allowing me to broaden my knowledge in fields of mathematics I had not yet seen. The most notable modules were Algebraic Topology and Directed Reading, where in the latter I studied category theory. These were fields I found an interest in whilst doing my undergraduate degree, and so I chose the MSc to find the opportunity to gain a much deeper understanding of these."
