Medicine, Year 1

(4.8)·By Joseph R·Medicine· Mar 2019
It was excellent. I had a lot of inteoductory lectures to ease me into the course but I did not feel as though they were all compulsory and i had plenty of time to do other things and bond with my flatmates and coursemates.

I love my accommodation. Although it is relatively far from the town centre there are very good travel links to town for cheap. I like living among 4000 other students in one space and its always lively and a fun space to live in. I was also very lucky to have such a good flat who I get on very well with which has made the experience more enjoyable.

The lecture theatre is very soacious and comfortable and has a microphone so it is very easy to hear the lecturers and the large screen at the front also helps me to follow lectures. There are three university libraries and although two of them are quite far from the medical school, they are great as one is open 24 hours and bothhave a wide variety of books and study spaces. The medical school also has its own library which makes finding medical related texts very easy as they are all in one space. The Goodwin gym is great and it offers facilitaties for all of the sports I could want to play. I also play football up to three times a week on its astro turf courts and I think they are of very high quality.

The lectures are in the medical school which is very close to my accomodation. The lecture theatre is large and spacious and offers a great place to learn due to its state of the art faciliaties. Although it is sometimes hard to decide what information is important to take away from some of the lectures, the Phase 1 Drive offered by older pupils really helps to clarify what information is important. The course is great because it is really hands on with things like full body dissection, and I feel as though we have sufficient lectures to learn the course and also have enough time for our own work.

The city life is great. There is always something on in the town rangin from vintage shop sales to cute markets. The nightlife is great and there are a wide variety of clubs and bars to suit every night out. The town is also very pretty and it is sometimes nice to just walk around the town as it has cool graffiti and admiriable architecture. I also like how the town always seems to be quite busy but never so busy that it is difficult to walk through.

Primarily, I would say that you have to be prepared for the workload as it is a step up from A-levels. I think it is hard to find a balance between work and social life and the extra pressure from doing a course such a medicine means you really have to want to do it if you are going to succeed. I would also say be prepared to socialise a lot with medics and if you want to find other friends it will take a lot more effort. If you do sport with medics and you have lectures with medics and the socials are medic socials I think it can be difficult to find non medic friends. Finally, I would stress the importance of doing extracurricular activities to break up your workload and to meet new people. When you leave home it is very easy to sit about and do nothing with all of your free time but I would advise on trying lots of new things and seeing what you like.

Medicine, Year 1

Very good, friendly and safe because I really felt at home in the city so was able to fully enjoy myself amongst all of the other’s students as Sheffield is very student dominated

It’s also really good, my facilities are amazing and it’s only a short distance away from the uni. It’s also very safe and had good security and when I arrived was clean and felt looked after just as I would expect

Amazing!! That sports areas and gyms are so modern and spacious there’s always room on a high tech piece of equipment. Some of my classrooms are slightly old fashioned but the libraries are again very spacious.

They are really engaging and inspire me to fulfill my full potential, they also use a range of learning material so we can learn in the best possible way for some of the tricky mechanisms we need to get our heads round this is vital

Again very good as Sheffield has an incredibly wide breadth of things to offer you have the incredible shopping centre, city centre and amazing green spaces so whatever mood your in there is always somewhere you fancy visiting and to help you feel at home

Sheffield is incredible for medicine all of the staff and lecturers are incredible friendly they will help you if they see you struggling and really do want the best for you also the integrated approach means whatever learner you are you will thrive.

Business Studies / Management, Year 2

(4.5)·By Michael S·Business· Jul 2021
Amazing experience. Great chance to meet everyone and course mates. Lucking it was pre COVID so uni organised lots of events. Fresher fairs were pretty decent aswell lots of free stuff and a way to find groups and clubs. Made a lot of mates by just getting out there at freshers fair Was in endcliffe. Really nice flats obviously not luxury but a lot better than what I expected lovely kitchen living space. Beds were actually comfy and staff on site were really helpful Loadsss of places to study havinf access to them all is really good as some might be closer than others in terms of where you live. Staff were all helpful. Sport areas were amazing lots of places to go and study. Wasn't too into business by the end of my alevels so wasn't sure what to expect. Went to uni and found a nee love for it. Made it more interesting and quite interactive which I loved. Nice to be in the hall with other people. Love the city had never been before shopping is good. Night life is really good city is all nice and acom isn't too far out. Loads of food shops and things to do activity wise.

Food science, Year 2

As I am doing a degree at a college I feel like my experience is a little different to most uni students, but I enjoy it! I love how practical my course is and my house mates love the food I bring back as well! My tutors are fab and I learnt so much in Year 1 so I hope Year 2 is the same!
