Why did you choose to study at the University of Sheffield?

Aside from the University of Sheffield being a great institution, I chose to study here so that I could still live at home. I also loved the flexibility of a dual-honours course.

What do you enjoy most about your course, and why?

My favourite part about the course is definitely the performance side. Both the facilities we have access to and the private tuition I receive are unmatched.

What’s the best thing about being a dual honours student?

I love the variety I have on my course, from romantic poetry to modern performance. It keeps me interested in being able to do both subjects I enjoy whilst still having a manageable workload.

What skills have you developed during your course that will be useful after you graduate?

My time management is much better. There are often times when I have assignments due at similar times from both separate departments so the way I plan is very important. I’ve definitely improved my planning through this course.

Would you recommend studying a dual-honours degree at the University of Sheffield?

I would absolutely recommend studying a dual honours degree! You have access to the best of both worlds and can tailor your degree to suit you.
