So are you a British student or an International student?
I’m a British student here. I’m studying for my BA Honours degree & know for a fact that this is the best decision for a university I have made.
Why did you choose Sheffield Hallam then?
There are a few reasons actually. I wanted to stay in my comfort zone. I’m from Sheffield & know the area well, & I was quite excited about moving on with my life & trying handling family life & carry on studying to improve qualifications. I love it here. I also wanted to do the course because it’s something I have been interested in for a long time. I knew that Sheffield Hallam is a university that takes in mostly International students; this is an even better opportunity to meet people from different countries, different cultures & religions. It’s all good fun & I’ve made many friends here.
What has your experience been like at the university?
It’s been awesome. The university staff, volunteers, mentors & lecturers are great. Always hands on & there when you need them. I’ve been very lucky enough to have lecturers that are available when I’m struggling. The campus itself is really great & the library is just really good. I love it here & the experience of uni life has been fun.
What about Sheffield on a whole?
Sheffield, well what can I say. The student life is just fantastic. We have parties & the club life is great fun. There are many restaurants, clubs & coffee shops that you can go to. There are cinemas & there’s the Ice Sheffield & then the bowling arena. It’s all really great. The Peace Gardens, the museums & even the Crucible right up the road. I’m from here so it's not all that new to me but still very nice to meet up with friends & have a great night out. Before I came here I didn’t think I would have this much of a great time but I have, & it’s been excellent.
Would you recommend Sheffield Hallam to others?
I most definitely will. I’ve actually mentioned it to my friends as well. They come round for a visit & its great having them here, maybe they might want to come & have a great time here too and study at my uni. It’s awesome & to future Sheffield Hallam students out there, I’m telling you now, get packing hahahahaa....... I love it here, my old & new friends love it here, & other potential students will love it here too.
