Undergraduate Student
BA Journalism Studies
Saya graduated in 2020 from BA Journalism Studies.

After growing up in the UK, I moved back to Tokyo for High School. I chose the University of Sheffield because of its top-tier programmes. My course combines practical and theoretical modules in a way that makes me confident in my skills and future. Since coming here, I have been in awe of how wonderful the people of Sheffield can be.

Although it is very different from the metropolitan environment I grew up in, I feel that the city of Sheffield is the perfect place for students, places like the Moor Market and the Peak District are so close by and being able to take part in so many activities at the Student’s Union here is a truly unique experience!
