Sheffield is a small city in Yorkshire, one hour from Manchester. The University there represents half of the city and is famous for its huge Students’ Union, the largest in the UK. It offers many activities daily to students: parties, sports, volunteering… During our visit, they were electing the new student officers and every candidate was campaigning during lunch time distributing leaflets, making choreographies or animations. For our last night we went to their Results’ Party, where the atmosphere was even crazier than for National elections ! We attended several lectures in the Mechanical Engineering department as well, to compare them with the French educational system. During our two weeks there, we also had time to discover the countryside such as Peak District, and some of us even made excursions to York and Liverpool.
