Does this question mean to ask what I would recommend the university? The only thing I can think of is the earlier mentioned introduction of a "buddy"-system. Otherwise just keep doing what they are doing!

I just want to mention that the Students' Union at the Sheffield University rates as one of the best in Great Britain (as you can read on their homepage and experience when going to Sheffield Uni). If you have questions or problems, you can always turn to the Union to find someone who can help you on a professional level.

Nobody has to go there for academic reasons. Spending time in Sheffield has something to do with personal enrichment for persons who have never spent some time abroad alone. The part of Sheffield where you can live is really small. People used to big cities wonīt be very happy there.

- Take good shoes with you, waterproof mountain shoes best. Otherwise you will break your legs. Sheffield is really hilly, and the hills sometimes are very steep. - If you hate walking everyday, donīt go to Sheffield!! - The closest airport is Manchester. - There is a direct train connection to Sheffield. That means that there should come a train every hour or every two hours. That does not mean that the train is really coming every hour or evry two hours!!! - Take a trolley or a suitcase with wheels with you, otherwise you get a heart attache in Sheffield! - Be friendly to everybody, then everybody will be friendly to you! - Do not take only warm clothes with you. The climate is very humid, you will sweat a lot! - Take a lot of personal photos with you. It makes the first days easier and you donīt see the ugly decoration in the student accomodation. - Try to find a room or some other accomodation before you arrive! - Be aware of the high prices in England! Donīt calculate with too less money!

Try to have some information in advance about the country, use coaches- not trains, cook individually. Meet wonderful people around the world. BUT: Don't fall in love with somebody who is not from your home country or any area near to you. It will break your heart after the exchange period. "Experience speaks"

Go. It may be that you are not quite satisfied with the way of being taught. But it really depends on you and the department you decide to study at. I would rate 4 out of 5 stars overall.

When you are there, you have to go Peak District. Don't miss the social clubs. If you have any questions you can always asked in the Union. Also the people living in Sheffield are very helpful.

Great place for study
LIU

Journalism
University of Sheffield
5.0/5
Overall
It's a great university. It's a Russel Group Uni and renowned for its Students Union. And during my study, I've had access to great facilities, academics, services. My teachers and tutors were all supportive and friendly. 

Sheffield is a multicultural town and a lovely place to live in. You can easily make friend with students and locals there.

The only pity I would say is that because I studied Global Journalism which is less practical than broadcasting and printing journalism, I had less opportunity to find a job or internship in Sheffield.

Pros
