Settling into Sheffield was a piece of cake. The university provides loads of activities to help you meet people, and the people living here are very friendly and helpful. It's also pretty easy to navigate around the city.
Sheffield is definitely a city, but it's also super green and very close to the gorgeous Peak District! It was a perfect balance of city/country life.
I decided to go to Sheffield because of the course they offer, but I ended up really settling into the city and I am more than happy with the choice.
It's definitely more expensive to live in England than it is to live in California, but I don't regret a pound that I've spent. This has been the best year of my life so far! I've learned so much from my course, my flatmates and friends, and from exploring this beautiful country.
University Accommodation - no complaints, but it is more expensive than private housing and a good half-hour walk from the uni.
When I wasn't studying or working, I traveled throughout the UK and also explored Sheffield and the Peak District.
Yes - England, Scotland, the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland.
You'll love Sheffield! There's a club/activity for everyone, and northerners are super friendly. The city center is neat and it has everything you'll need to buy throughout the year. The surrounding Peak District is a hiker's dream! Ecclesall Road also has fun pubs and shops worth checking out!
Across the Pond was so helpful! My advisor answered my many questions and eased any worries that I had. Across the Pond gave me the confidence to commit to a year abroad and I will always be grateful for that!
