International opportunities

Our School is a vibrant international community and this is reflected across all aspects of our work, from the way we learn and teach, to the diversity of our research portfolio and the way we engage with the city and the world beyond.

We are dedicated to supporting incoming international students, as well as students seeking international experience. We focus on developing the cultural agility of all our students, and actively seek to create further opportunities to expand our students’ awareness of the international context of research, study and practice.

European Exchanges

Erasmus is the European Commission's exchange programme that enables students in 33 European countries to study, work or teach for part of their degree in another country.

    I recommend the experience to anyone who has the opportunity to go on Erasmus. The chance to meet new people and create networks abroad is invaluable as well as making new friends and having a great time.

    Study abroad

    The Study Abroad programme at the University of Sheffield offers undergraduate students from home and abroad the chance to spend part of your degree at a university in another country.

    Undergraduates already studying at the University of Sheffield have the opportunity to study part of their degree in Australia, Canada, Hong Kong, Singapore or USA, whilst students from non-European countries have the chance to study at Sheffield for part of their home university degree.

    You’ll meet the most amazing people, expand your comfort zones and find that you’re capable of so much more. Sheffield has fantastic connections and so do the universities you’ll travel to.
