Our International Students
Welcome to the School of Education
The School of Education is international in its outlook and its makeup. We value research that develops theory, life and work – locally, regionally, nationally, and internationally. We value teaching that engages with students, and that is democratic, critically engaged and inspiring. We value each and every person who is part of our School as both equal and unique.
Friendly, vibrant, multicultural and safe

Plus, the cost of living is 25 per cent lower than London. Most University buildings are within walking distance from each other and the campus is a very short walk from the city centre.Why Sheffield?>
