We’ve gone back and spoken to students who completed the Discover Arts and Humanities programme and who decided to stay at Sheffield for their degrees.Here’s how Megan answered her 5 Minutes, 5 Questions.
What are you studying?
I’m studying English Language and English Literature and starting my second year in September.
Where are you from?
I’m from Brinsworth which is in Rotherham, a small village about 15 minutes from Sheffield.
Why did you take part in the programme?
One of my tutors at sixth form suggested for me to join as all my A Levels were humanities subjects and it was something I was really, really interested in. I wanted to be able to get a feel for university life before I actually went and I feel like it helped me do that massively.
What was the best thing about the programme?
It’s so hard to pinpoint one thing because I loved it all and feel so privileged to be able to have been part of it. It helped me get to where I am now and that has to be the best thing that’s come from it.
What is the best thing about being a Sheffield student?
Sheffield is, in my opinion, the greatest city in England. There’s so much to do and it’s so much fun. The people of Sheffield are so polite and welcoming and the University offers top class courses. I couldn’t think of a single reason not to come to Sheffield.
