Winner of a Postgraduate Merit Scholarship
The unique curriculum that my course consists of is a rare token that I have not been able to find anywhere else in the world.

How did you first hear about your scholarship?

I heard about it through a friend who advised me to search through the university’s website, which is how I ended up finding it. I am thankful and blessed to get this opportunity from the university. In all honesty, a great number of spectacular people apply to the University of Sheffield every year, so I was not expecting it at all and was in absolute surprise when I received the email saying that I had gotten the scholarship. 

What made you choose to study at Sheffield and your course?

The unique curriculum that my course consists of is a rare token that I have not been able to find anywhere else in the world to be frank. Not to forget to mention the extremely hospitable and friendly atmosphere that the university provides is second to none. 

How did you research the University to find out about studying in Sheffield?

My friend did her masters at the university 3 years ago and her experience back then grew my interest in the idea of coming to Sheffield. 

What are you enjoying about your first semester? 

As an international student, I was afraid that I would struggle with fitting in and getting familiar with the university and the city. However, I found Sheffield to be such a wholesome city to the extent that it already feels like a second home. The student environment that the SU has established stands as living proof to why it is ranked as the number one SU in the UK. 

How has (or will) the scholarship benefit your studies?

As a student, worrying about tuition fees and the cost of living can be detrimental to an anyone’s performance, especially when they could have been forced to work part-time to cover for their needs. Thus, a scholarship would certainly play a big role in alleviating some of this burden, resulting in a more focused educational experience and better outcomes overall. 

What advice would you give to a student considering studying at the University of Sheffield?

Do NOT hesitate, apply now and join the family! 

What do you hope to do in the future?

I hope to make more long-life friendships, good memories and leave a positive impact behind me, because that is what matters in the end after all.
