Information Systems

Ying Ji (Emma)

Hello! My name is Emma, I come from China. I’m a postgraduate student majoring in Information Systems, which is interesting and challenging.

During the course, professors will arrange specific company cases for us to analyze and design information systems. In addition, the course will involve some coding.

I love Sheffield, it’s beautiful and vibrant. People are very nice and friendly, I like talking with them very much.

On weekends, I like reading and swimming.

The university’s facilities are excellent, with 5 libraries and a sports center, which meet my needs. I love to travel in my spare time. Sheffield is particularly close to the Peak District, where the scenery is particularly beautiful and is ideal for hiking.

Chat to me if you are curious about Information School, the university and Sheffield. I am happy to answer it and help you!

Library and Information Systems Management


Hi I'm Rachel and I'm from the UK.

I'm Yorkshire born and bred and although I am a distance learner student I am glad I chose to do the MA Library and Information Services Management course at Sheffield.

If you are interested in studying from home but not sure if it would be the right choice for you I am happy to help with any questions or queries you might have that I may be able to answer. For me it has worked out perfectly since I am able to balance my degree with my other commitments such as volunteering and appointments.

I'd definitely consider a distance learning course if you are considering doing a postgraduate degree.

As I previously said, if you have any questions I would be happy to help try and answer them.
