MSc Psychology and Education (Conversion)
Jahanavachandrika Kotha is developing confidence and independence as an International student in our city, which she finds both welcoming and beautiful.

The MSc Psychology and Education (conversion course) is providing me with the right insights, skills I require for the path I wish to follow. The support I have received with respect to academics or well-being is impeccable. I had great support from my supervisor and also had frequent follow-ups to make sure everything was going well as I was settling in.

The course modules are outstanding and helpful for a person starting their career as a psychologist. To develop confidence and to be independent, you should always move from your comfortable place which is your home. Moving to a new place helped me realise how much psychological importance was lacking in my place and how important it is to have a normal mental health which can be gained by working on something we desire to do in our life.

Sheffield is one of the most beautiful places I have ever been to and people here and university were very welcoming irrespective of the student's background. I have even signed up for an e-mentoring scheme, where it really helped me understand career options and also about places to visit in Sheffield to fulfil a student experience.
