Kalu Onuma took A-levels at Kings London before winning a place to study for a degree in Electrical and Electronic Engineering at the University of Sheffield (#25).
"I did detailed research about the universities I wanted to apply to. I was interested in going to Manchester but after I did my research I realised that the course modules were not suitable for what I wanted to do, so I didn’t go for that. Sheffield has a very good EE department, so I chose this university.
When I applied it was ranked 4th for Engineering.
I enjoyed the small classes at Kings — that way you have more time with the teacher, which improves your grade at the end of the year. They give you lots of feedback. I also enjoyed the social activities, mixing with students from different cultures and backgrounds."
