I attended the University of Sheffield in 2015 after applying to complete the BMedSci Health and human Sciences. I chose this course because I had an idea I wanted to persue a career in healthcare but was unsure in what area.

The course was excellent at exploring different avenues in relation to healthcare and learning was very broad. Since graduating in July 2018, I now aspire to complete a masters in adult nursing at the University. This choice has been influenced both by learning and working experience.

I am very grateful to have had this opportunity. It has been life-changing and highlighted some of my strengths and weaknesses. Attending the University was a daunting experience for myself since I have learning difficulties; being able to complete my course would not have been possible without the exceptional support given on the course, learning support and the workshops that are available. Attending the University of Sheffield is by far the best choice I have ever made.
