Events and open days
One of the best ways to get a feel for the Department for Lifelong Learning and hear answers to any questions you may have is by talking to us face-to-face. We'd love to meet you at one of our events, open days, taster workshops or other events we're attending.
Our new programme of Open Events will start in September 2017 and we will publish details on these pages after the Summer. In the meantime, you can visit one of the University's Undergraduate Open Days. Our Mature Student Ambassadors are available at every Open Day on the mature student stall in The Octagon. You can also book onto subject talks within departments, speak to University support staff, and visit the University on a campus tour. See below for further details.
6 FREE University Taster Sessions on 25th January, 9:30am until 12pm
We are running 6 taster sessions for anyone 21 or over, without traditional university entry qualifications, who would like to find out more about studying at the University of Sheffield. The tasters cover topics from Arts and Humanities, Science, and Social Science. There is an optional campus tour at 12pm.
Please read the programme of tasters and register for up to two sessions (plus the welcome talk).
