Freya has enjoyed the pure maths and mechanics on her degree so far, as well as the experience of living in the city.

What made you want to study your course?

I wanted to study mathematics at university so that I could expand my knowledge further, especially in the pure and mechanics modules. I enjoy problem solving questions and would like a maths-based career in the future.

What made you decide to study at the University of Sheffield?

When deciding where to study, I liked the University of Sheffield because the optional modules on the course enabled me to study a broad range of mathematics. I also wanted to experience city life as I come from a small town.

What have you enjoyed most about your course so far?

I have only just finished my first year of undergraduate study but I have really enjoyed both the pure mathematical modules and the mechanics modules at The University of Sheffield (especially Mathematics Core II, and Vectors and Mechanics).

What skills have you developed during your course?

So far in my course, I have developed my problem solving skills and my application skills (when applying pure maths concepts to mechanics topics). I have also developed programming skills by learning R in my probability and statistics module.

What would you say to a student thinking about studying your course at Sheffield?

I love the University of Sheffield, I love the mathematics course and the city experience is great. The course is great because you can have a taster of a broad range of mathematics in first year and then focus your modules from second year onwards.

What are you planning to do after your degree?

I’m not sure yet as I’m only at the end of my first year. I have recently done an internship and enjoyed that.
