Jack Brentall - MA in Political Theory

A world-class university – a unique student experience

University of Sheffield

I recently started my MA in Political Theory at the University of Sheffield after finishing my undergraduate degree in summer before. Applying to Sheffield was a no-brainer really, as it is a great city to study at and a fantastic department to work in. The departmental staff are always helpful and they really push you to achieve your best. The level of support provided makes a huge difference at postgraduate level.

The seminars here are fantastic, always well-organised and full of lively debate. The modules offered are very wide ranging and well-organised, catering for all backgrounds and areas of interest, from research methods to theory. Because the University is research-intensive we are constantly being taught by experts in their respective fields, making you feel like you really are part of something new and important. My time here so far has been really positive and I am looking forward to next term and the new challenges and opportunities that it will bring.
