A taste of Sheffield

I am fortunate enough to have many opportunities presented by the University of Sheffield in terms of their career services and their legal fairs as I am currently an undergraduate in law. I would advice a new student to have an open mind and keep all your options open, never be afraid to try something new and open up boundaries!

International Student - University Review

Time spent in university in a once-in-a-lifetime experience.
The University of Sheffield is a great place to be, specially to study engineering. Moreover, the city itself is an interesting place to live in. It isn't that hard to settle in and the university also offers a wide range of top-notch facilities (Best Students' Union of the UK, one of the best library facilities across the UK, etc). In addition to this, The University of Sheffield is not a campus university, which means you get to walk around time from one building to another, which at times is quite enjoyable. One of the things I like is the proximity of Sheffield to the Peak District, where one could go for long walks, hikes or bicycle rides and enjoy a breathtaking scenery.

The Most Friendly University in the UK

I have spent enjoyable time in Sheffield. As one of the university's aim is developing students as independent learners, I'm learning a lot of knowledge and skills.

The University of Sheffield

Sheffield is very international city, and our University has excellent libraries, good Students' Union that offers many activities and there are many places to meet up with friends after lectures. Also, our university provides several dual honor degrees, and I am very satisfied with my course and the various modules offered.

For Shieffielders To Be

It’s an excellent and top ranking university if you are taking engineering as your major. There re lots of research groups that collaborate with the well known companies like roll Royce and etc. The city is vibrant, has a low cost of living and the public transport system is very efficient. The thing that I enjoyed the most is the green environment  with parks everywhere in the university. And besides, you will also hardly able to experience stress during your study in Sheffield university. The international experience is really just depends on your initiative, you could go out and experience volunteering session or sit alone in your room missing roti canai and nasi lemak (Malaysian local delicacies). :D

Pick Sheffield for an all rounded education that will boost your job prospects upon graduation

My University experience has been great! Not only did I receive an excellent education with access to resources that strengthened by educational environment such as a secure library open 24 hours, I was also able to take part in a vast variety of extracurricular activities as a result of having an active students Union that was rated as one of the best in the UK. If you want to have a university experience that is not limited to merely a good education but will enhance your CV and job prospects globally,  my advice to you is consider applying to the University of Sheffield which is not only a University that has highly ranked departments locally but is also recognised worldwide!

University of Sheffield, the best place to be at!

Studying at The University of Sheffield has definitely been a wonderful experience for me so far. The University is one of the best in the world and gives you a great platform to enhance your exposure. With over 25,000 students, it gives you an opportunity to interact and socialise with people from all around the world and learn about their culture. Moreover, the main reason why I chose University of Sheffield for my undergraduate programme is because of its very close relations with employers from a wide range of fields. The employability chances increase incredibly if you are a part of University of Sheffield. The staff is extremely friendly in all the departments and the admission process is very easy. If you are a passionate learner, Sheffield is the best place to be.
