Hanqing came to Sheffield and found a city that is well suited to Chinese students, and course that helped her develop her practical skills in chemistry.

I came to Sheffield in 2018 to undertake my studies at the University of Sheffield. It was the final year of a collaborative undergraduate degree between Sheffield and Nanjing Tech University.

Chemistry is considered a better major in Sheffield, and since I was familiar with the teachers, the course and the city, I continued to read for my master's degree in Sheffield.

Sheffield is has a relatively large Chinese population. It is very convenient because it has many Chinese supermarkets and restaurants.

What I like most about the course is the laboratory class. I can do some experiments by myself, and I can discuss with my classmates and teachers at any time. I was able to strengthen my basic knowledge of chemistry and learn more about the areas I am interested in such as analysis and organic synthesis.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, I was not able to conduct experiments, so I did a literature research on my research project and proposed new directions for solving problems and experimental design.


我是在2018年来到谢菲尔德大学进行学习的。是合作办学本科最后一年来的谢菲。化学算是谢菲比较好的专业,老师课程城市都比较熟悉所以继续在谢菲读的硕士。谢菲是英国城市中中国人占比最多的城市,中餐中超很多很方便。最喜欢的是实验课,能亲自动手完成一些实验,而且可以比较自在的随时和同学老师讨论问题。在课程中巩固了自己的化学基础知识,对于感兴趣的方面例如分析,有机合成进行了深入学习。由于疫情原因没能进行实验,我只对我的研究项目进行了文献的研究整理提出新的解决问题的方向和实验设计。课程结束后我回国找工作,现在还在找工作中。
