My Life During Pre-sessional School!

Hi everyone~It's me again~!! Claire
Some people were asking me a lot about my experience during the pre-sessional school (English Language Teaching Centre).
So, now I am going to show you some photos and share my experience with you!

First of all, studying in the pre-sessional class will not only help you improve your English (for passing the final exam in order to get your unconditional offer)
but also helps you to settle into the new environment more easily.
For example, the teachers not only teach you how to pass the exam, they also teach you how to write a project and use academic language, as well as how to use the library and online system, presentation skills and how to make your own notes from the lectures
All the skills I mentioned above can help you have a easier life when you join the real master course.

See, I was working with a cup of coffee in the library for my first English project!!!

By starting your life in the UK a little bit earlier you also benefit from finding out about all the activities the university offers.  You can learn how to make a cup of coffee with fresh beans and do some coffee art - trust me this is really my fist time at a shot!

Spring is Coming!!!

Hi everybody

I know a lot of people are preparing (struggling) for IELTS exam and worrying about many things about coming to UK. I know this because I worry about my assignment and dissertation as well.

But if you find this happening when you're here, you just have t stop worrying and have a little walk on the street.

You can see many, many beautiful flowers around the street.

I wanted to share some photos to show you how you can feel and enjoy beautiful spring time!!!!

Winter is gone!!! Let's enjoy the spring time!!!!! 

Relax, and everything will be fine : )

My Investment in the University

Hi, I am Claire,

Recently I have been very busy with my idea's for my dissertation. It's not easy when you are trying to make the general idea more specific. But I am doing my best on it.

Today, I am going to tell you about my investment in the University.
Although the University is mainly about teaching you how to get your knowledge in an academic way; the University of Sheffield also offers a lot of help to make you a better connection to the real business world.

First, on the University section. They have a Career Service to advise students who needs any help or advice on their career choices and options.

If you are in the management school, like me~
You can just go to the career service in the management school!!
Just go into the office, and they will help you with your enquiries and make an appointment for you to see the professional adviser.

As for my course (Creative and Cultural Industries Management.)
We have several field trips during the semesters.

My Favorite Libraries!

Hi everyone, today I am going to talk about my favorite library in the University of Sheffield.

There are four libraries in the University.

 I am going to share with you information about my favorite one and the one which most students go.

 First! My favorite one! Western Bank Library.

You have to noticed that this library is not open 24 hours!


The whole space is for students to study silently, so remember to stay quiet when you come here.

My favorite part for this library is the view you can have when you look outside the window!

Just feel like you are sitting in the park. And you can also enjoy the sunshine when there is a sunny day. Therefore, you can have a really good mood when you study here. It make you work more efficiently!!

The one which most students like to go!! Information commons!!

One of the reason that it is so popular is bacause it opens for 24 hours!!! So you can come here and study all day, or even all night !!!

Eat in Sheffield :)

Some people may worry about what kind of food they can eat as their daily meal when they are not in their home country.

So, today I want to share some pictures with you about my life in Sheffield.

Firstly! If you study in UK. You must try some traditional English food!!!

Fish and Chips:

Full English breakfast!! Makes you feel energetic all day long!
