University open days

Open day

Experience what it's like to be a Sheffield student

These University-wide open days are open to everyone and will give you a real taste of what it's like to be a student at Sheffield.

You can tailor the day to suit your interests. Want to see our accommodation? You can. Interested in sport? Pay a visit to Sport Sheffield. Have a question about loans and grants? There'll be someone here to answer it.

Most importantly, you can attend a talk by our academics to find out more about our Aerospace Engineering courses.

Post-offer open days

Open day

Experience what it's like to study Aerospace Engineering

Once you've been offered a place to study Aerospace Engineering, we'll be in touch to invite you to a departmental open day. We welcome parents and carers too. These take place between November and March. 

Post-offer open days are very different to the University open days which you may have attended before.

You'll get to meet with teaching staff, chat to current students and experience taster sessions on subjects such as aeromechanics and avionics. You'll tour our facilities, including our new state-of-the-art Aerospace Engineering labs, and find out about the kind of jobs which will be available to you when you graduate. You'll get to enjoy lunch on us too.

You'll still have the opportunity to look around campus and visit our accommodation on a post-offer open day, but the main focus is on giving you all the information you need about our courses.
