Best life experience which I always wanted to have. I made good networks.
Tips: Before joining any college in the UK every student needs to know that you have to compromise with your comfort of life and work hard. Rather than going there and crying make sure you are ready for it. You have to learn time management. Manage your currency. Have a part-time job which is stable. Work on your assignments. Make your network strong.
Likes (Student Life): Considering Sheffield as a university town you will not have a campus, the whole city is your campus. You get to meet new people and there are many events organised, job fair etc. I was a part of the Indian society there. We had events organised by them.
Dislikes (Indian Food): There were few Indian-origin restaurants but mainly provided food as per UK taste. There is a restaurant named Maveli which provides good Kerala-type food. Cooking food at home would be preferable as having Indian food outside would be expensive. Best is to cook your own food as per your taste.

Academically, university is excellent but personally it’s going to be extreme lonely
Tips: Anticipate well towards huge culture shocks and it's going to be very lonely so join societies. Try building a lot of connections and attending lectures. Finding part time is extremely difficult in the first year but you need to keep applying. Everything is going to be expensive.
