"You aight, duck?" It’s a sort of mantra in Sheffield. An assortment of dubious endearing terms, generously drenched in Henderson’s Relish, served with a side of lowkey whining about The Arctic Monkeys. Before you know it you’ve caught the duck bug, whether you’re relaxing in one of the pubs on West Street or enjoying one of the massive nights out at the Union. Everything is within walking distance, but uphill – eventually you develop Viking legs and stop getting muscle soreness. The Peak District itself is part of town – ride the paternoster to the top of the Arts Tower and see for yourself. Aye duck, it’s reyt good.

    Excellent university life variety, great nights out, modern facilities, amazing student union, very green, but campus is not an eye candy and city is quite small.

    Great experience so far, kind and friendly. Lecturers are all nice and approachable. Lectures aren't monotone and boring. Amazing new engineering building for all forms of engineering, including mechanical, chemical, civil, electrical and computer science.
