"What is more striking is the statement the University’s multitude of international scholarships sends. Few universities in Britain offer as much financial support to international students as Sheffield, and this funnels into the larger multicultural, inclusive ethos of the University —#weareinternational, — a message which resonated at the Scholarship Celebration Evening and pervades throughout campus."
