Another reason to choose the University of Sheffield

Well done University of Sheffield for being part of the top 100 most international Universities in the world! 

I believe it’s a great privilege to be part of a University which not only has such a diverse student community, but most importantly, an institution that promotes tolerance in such a passionate way.

An institution that doesn’t use the “We are International” phrase as a slogan, but as a living manifesto.  I have to be honest, as I’m getting more interested in world politics, I’m also getting slightly terrified to see how some politicians are drifting to an extreme-right position which promotes division and fear. Thanks University of Sheffield for promoting exactly the opposite! 

To end this short post, I’d like to echo the words of Professor Sir Keith Burnett, our Vice-Chancellor at the University of Sheffield, who said:

“In a world struggling with division, we also provide a precious environment in which we learn from one another and build deep bonds of friendship and respect. We are committed to preserving and enhancing this wonderful asset which brings so many benefits to our region, to the United Kingdom and the wider world.”
