What Our Students Say
Our students share their experience of the course
"I'd like to sincerely thank you and the team for all the support given to me along my two year MA journey.The tutor guidance and advice was really excellent - it felt that every tutor I had really cared and it seemed that they were waiting at their computer just for me to ask for advice, as a reply came straight back! The guidance I was given was encouraging and insightful in guiding me along my chosen assignment path. I loved my 'Sheffield weekends' and every time I returned home my work was just that much better. Jools [Page] you were brilliant at balancing really hard work with fun and such a master of the reassuring smile - I will never know how you managed to remember everyone names. I shall treasure the time I spent as part of Sheffield Uni and feel a little bereft that it has come to an end."
Helen Nixon (MA in ECE UK)
"The weekend was very professionally executed. It was obvious a lot of thought and time went into the format to ensure the time worked most effectively. I enjoyed every moment and although the weekend is short, I felt it was very productive. The international mix of students allowed for a wide range of perspectives on Early Childhood to be discussed, usually in the informal settings of the restaurant or the bar. All the tutors were very helpful and encouraging, as indeed were all the staff at the Rutland Hotel. You presented the material in a very clear methodical manner. You were also very respectful of each students contribution. The presentation manner adopted by you ensured we were not intimidated to speak or to contribute to group discussions."
