Overall Experience
I gained a lot of new friends from all over the world that I'm definitely going to be staying in contact with. I was nervous that it wouldn't be worth it and that I would regret it, but that's not the case. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

I learned that engineering is the same no matter what country you are from, just the methods of testing your comprehension a little different. Totally worth while. - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review
Being away from home in a new environment definitely taught me to be more independent, patient, outgoing, and open-minded.Though I've always had a love for traveling and the different things each culture and country has to offer, living in a different country with international students was definitely an eye-opener and opportuni... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

A student studying abroad with University of Sheffield: Sheffield - Direct Enrollment & Exchange
The academics were extremely challenging and broadening. I was most affected personally by living in the community while I was there. I found a great church community to be involved in, I sailed in the University Sailing Club, and participated in other social events in Sheffield. The experience was more than worthwhile... it wa... - The University of Texas at Austin View Entire Review

We love the fact that although Sheffield is a major city, and developing all the time, it has kept its sense of community. This is a friendly, safe and affordable place to make your home. Most University buildings are within walking distance from each other and the campus is a very short walk from the city centre.

In Sheffield you can enjoy sophisticated fast-paced city life and yet in 20 minutes you can be in the middle of beautiful countryside.
