The modules have opened me up to new topics I haven't really considered before.
I am currently part of a Law4NonLaw committee. By joining this group it has allowed me to think about my next steps after university but also what skills I can adapt from my degree in order to help my position in the committee.
Why did you choose to study at Sheffield?
I chose to study at Sheffield due to the course. I wanted a course that would allow me to study a wide range of time periods and offer support and advice. I also went to several open days to finalize my decision due to the friendly teacher and ambassador help.
Has your experience so far been what you expected?
My first year wasn't what I typically would have expected due to Covid however, my second year has lived up more to what I expected just down to lectures and seminars happening in person.
What do you particularly enjoy about your degree programme?
What I currently enjoy about my degree is the range of periods and topics I have been able to cover. The modules I have taken have opened me up to new topics I haven't really considered before. I also enjoy the discussions in seminars as it helps with understanding a topic.
What modules are you studying this year? Are there any modules that you have particularly enjoyed during your degree so far and why?
This year I am studying, Gender and the Georgians, The Gunpowder Plot, and The fall of the Berlin and Pharaohs to Alexander the Great. Currently my favourite module is Gender and Georgians as I have never studied gendered history before. Previously, I have studied Empires which I found enjoyable as it allowed me to compare different time periods and think about bigger themes.
If you’ve undertaken any extra-curricular activities, what do you feel these have added to your time here?
I am currently part of a Law4NonLaw committee. By joining this group it has allowed me to think about my next steps after university but also what skills I can adapt from my degree in order to help my position in the committee. I think joining societies helps to explore peoples passions or provides social interactions with people who share these similar passions.
What do you like about the University/living in Sheffield?
With regards to living in Sheffield I like how you get to experience the city and the countryside all in one place. What I like about the university is the number of useful places to go study in and there is always someone there who will offer support.
