No matter which course you choose, Sheffield caters for everyone and gives the best university experience.
I love Sheffield because it is a vibrant and friendly city. Coming from Hong Kong, which is a metropolitan city with a busy and rapid lifestyle, it’s a big contrast. I love the relaxed atmosphere in Sheffield with its many places for students. Everything is so conveniently located. There are restaurants everywhere as well as shops and malls. The night life is also great
The best thing about living in Sheffield is the student experience. Having friends all around the city, I enjoy meeting up and hanging out whenever we are free. The Students' Union offers a wide range of activities. I have made lots of friends through participating in clubs and societies. This year I am the Vice President of the Hong Kong Society. Last year I organised one of its biggest events - the variety show. I decided to join to meet more people from Hong Kong and to help organise activities and increase its membership. The night life is also perfect for someone who enjoys staying out late with pubs and clubs across the city within minutes' reach.Since there are people everywhere it is safe to travel from one point to another at night. Overall, it is a great experience to live and study in Sheffield.
As a student of Business Management I was thrilled about taking part in group work. For example, I have just finished an entrepreneurial project where I worked with my group to come up with and pitch a business idea. It was exciting to develop our own designs. I learned so much from working as part of a multicultural team.
I would highly recommend studying at the University of Sheffield. Not only has it got a good reputation and high rankings internationally, there is so much more to the University and the city! So far I have really enjoyed my life in Sheffield, making lots of friends and having fun. No matter which course you choose, Sheffield caters for everyone and gives the best university experience.
