Postgraduate Open Days
27 November 2014 & 25 February 2015
Postgraduate Open Days give students interested in applying for a Master’s Degree or PhD the opportunity to speak to staff, students and alumni about The University of Sheffield.
Prospective students can attend talks, stands and tours.
Alumni who had completed postgraduate qualifications at Sheffield were invited to give a 10 minute presentation about their course, the student experience and how postgraduate study has impacted their career, before answering questions informally from the floor.
Five alumni spoke to over 130 prospective students over the two open days who gained first-hand insight about postgraduate study, allowing them to make more informed choices.
“Having worked as an employee in large companies since graduation I am having to learn a whole new set of skills for my new career.
