Sheffield Hallam University Summer Semester 2014 Part 1

Shu1 Banner
Hi. It’s been a long time since I’ve posted anything. Have been very busy with final exams of Advance Diploma in TARC.

I’m now in Sheffield, UK to attend the summer semester to obtain my degree in Electronic Systems Engineering. I’ve only been here for 4 days now and I can say it has been the best time of my life so far.

Just wanted to share some photos and my experience here these few days, and I’m sure there are more to come, that’s why I named this post ‘Part 1’.

Let’s start with the beginning of my journey here.

Packed my bags and ready to head to the airport for my night flight.

Took off from KLIA at 3.30AM. I was excited but yet a bit sad to leave my family and home behind.

Landed at Manchester airport. Didn’t take much photos here because we were busy getting through the immigration process and to board our bus to Sheffield.

Finally boarded the bus. Can’t wait to see Sheffield!

The Electronic Engineering students are assigned to live in The Trigon, a new hostel block located near campus.

We have two days before semester starts so we got the chance to visit a few places.

First stop was Millennium Park. About 15 minutes walk from Trigon.

A nice park to enjoy with the nice weather and cool breeze.
