UK: Financial support for Sheffield’s global students

Sauder School of BusinessWhen Sameeruddin Shaikh, from India, was choosing an MBA course in the UK, he was looking for support. “I short-listed Sheffield Hallam, because it offers a lot of facilities for its students,” he recalls.

“It has an international student support team, always ready to help students in any matter they need. It has accommodation services. The University arranges an induction program. And I received an International Achievement Scholarship, worth £1,000.”

The Sheffield Hallam University International Achievement Scholarship program is open to students from any non-EU country. Each scholarship is worth between £1,000 and £4,000, and is awarded to qualified students who show academic, personal or professional achievement in their application form.

As well as this financial support, “Sheffield Hallam University has excellent and committed lecturers, (who) provide lecture notes and learning resources. Guest lectures give students more exposure and knowledge. And the state-of-the-art Adsetts Centre (library, IT and teaching facilities) is amazing,” says Sameeruddin.

Sharib Yousef was also quite surprised by the main University building. “I thought the buildings would be very old, but they were the opposite! It’s a state-of-the-art university, and the engineering labs are extremely well equipped. The infrastructure in Sheffield, the roads, trains, buses, buildings, theatres, are phenomenal in their range and accessibility,” he says.

“I also found that studying here was quite different to India. Instead of a blackboard, we have to use PowerPoint and slides,” says Sharib. “There is no spoon-feeding, you really have to study for yourself. We do presentations and assignments. My English has improved so much, I am much more confident.”

Sheffield is England’s fourth largest city, with a population of over 500,000 and a student population of over 45,000. It is located in the centre of the UK, and has excellent transport links to all other cities and airports. It is one of the safest cities in the UK and also one of its greenest – a third of the city is within the Peak District National Park.

“The best thing about Sheffield is the people,” Sharib says. “Everybody is friendly here. And it is so multicultural – I don’t feel out of place at all.”
