“Everyone has been so welcoming and warm since the moment I arrived! The people of Sheffield have definitely made a positive impression. ”

How did you feel when you heard that you were successful in being awarded the scholarship?

I flew to my scholarship interview, and I had to take a return flight only a few short hours later. I was sitting on the plane waiting to take off, and I received a phone call saying I had won the scholarship! It was an odd experience to find out alone, because so many people had supported and encouraged me throughout the whole process. So when I found out that I won the scholarship, I was overcome with gratitude and excitement! All I wanted to do was call my family and professors, but I had to go up in the air! 

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

I chose Sheffield, because the Additive Manufacturing research here is incredible. I kept reading amazing papers on Additive Manufacturing by the University of Sheffield, and I wanted to join the research community here. I was also amazed by the support that the University had for international students. I visited Sheffield around Christmas time, and with only one day’s notice they set me up on a tour with a current international postgraduate student. I definitely felt welcomed from my very first visit!

What are the highlights of your experience in Sheffield so far?

So far my highlights have been exploring the Peak District, meeting new people and beginning my coursework in additive manufacturing! 

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

I would say that if you are considering the University of Sheffield, ask yourself if you want to study in a welcoming and passionate environment with cutting edge research opportunities. If your answer is yes, then make the move to Sheffield!
