Supporting Students

Our students get support throughout their degrees from our dedicated staff. The students also take the lead in organising events and activities through their student societies, and taking opportunities to speak out about what's important to them.

Our academic and professional staff are committed to giving students everything they need to succeed at the University of Sheffield. All students have a personal tutor, who is the first port of call for any academic or personal matters, as well as providing study support and careers advice. Dedicated Year Tutors also provide another point of contact and support, as does our dedicated Tutor for Female Students.

For students who need additional support with academic skills or maths skills they can access dedicated support from:

The Academic Skills

Mathmatics and Statistics Help

Students are also invited to join the ACSE Student-Staff Committee, so that they can have their say on the way things work in the department. A huge range of support is also offered by the University's Student Services Information Desk (SSID), whether it’s to do with admin, wellbeing or immigration.


Extra-Curricular Activities

The Sheffield Students Union has been rated the best in the UK by the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey for eight years running. Many of our students join student societies through the Union, covering a wide range of sports and social activities.

The ACSE Student Society (ACSE Soc’) is run by the students, and aims to provide students with the opportunity to meeting other students within the department. The group is active in organising a range of social and sporting events, and providing support to fellow students on academic choices.
