Manchester is a legendary party city, with loads of things to do every night and lots of things catered to students. The facilities at the Uni are amazing, they’re constantly doing it up and there’s loads of space and computers in the Library now, makes studying so much more relaxing. The staff are all really helpful, and my tutors were incredible – really interesting intellectuals, down to earth and with plenty of great advice and feedback to offer me.
I have genuinely enjoyed my first year at university immensely. The course has made me think and question my ideas, allowing me to critique my own work to improve it, I believe the extensive group work has given me the confidence to decide for myself if something I've produced is good, and be confident in my decisions. My tutors have been lovely, and with the small class sizes all of my tutors know my name, where I'm from, what my style is, my strengths and weaknesses and how I want to go into the photography industry in a particular genre. I've been allowed access to equipment and techniques, I hadn't even thought to try before. The university also offers a lot of student jobs, during term time and over the summer. these jobs can be anything from office work, or showing people around on open days, but they pay exceptionally well and inform you on new jobs frequently.

I think this is one of the best unis in Britain, not only as a Russell Group but also outside the lecture halls. I doubt there's another uni that can provide the complete combination of brilliant courses as well as the facilities available here. everything seems to be just right and you can make Sheffield anything you want it to be. I couldn't have picked a more perfect uni for myself.
