We asked some of our PhD students and graduates to share their experiences of studying mathematics and statistics at the University of Sheffield.
"I have always appreciated Sheffield's proximity the beautiful Peak District National Park, where I spend my weekends rock climbing, fell running, and hiking. The combination of strong research opportunities and the relaxing outdoor lifestyle is largely what drew me to live here."
"My supervisor, Professor Vladimir Bavula, is very supportive. I have received helpful advice from him, and feel supported in learning new skills and managing the workload. Also, my supervisor encourages me to attend various conferences and workshops."
"The importance of giving a good talk, be that a casual one at the friendly atmosphere of a departmental seminar, or a formal one at a prestigious international conference, cannot be emphasised enough. And the School provided me with numerous such occasions upon which I could practice again and again."
"From the work I had done in my previous degrees, I was eager to continue working in algebraic geometry, and what drew me to Sheffield is the strong research group in this area."
