ELTC student social programme

Our social programme gives you a chance to do activities outside of your studies. It gives you more opportunities to practise your English and communication skills in an informal and relaxed way.

Our social programme includes weekly activities such as sport, conversation clubs and art groups, but may change due to student and staff interests. Some activities may be online, but most are face-to-face.

You will be led by a staff member and use the facilities around the University. All activities are open to our full-time students based at 78 Hoyle Street (in the main ELTC Building) and some are also open to our summer Pre-sessional students based on the campus and online too. 

University English (UE) students also have educational visits and trips to places around Sheffield and further away. Locations can include museums, art galleries, historical buildings and places of natural beauty and scientific interest. 

All ELTC students can also have full access to a range of activities offered at the main University and we encourage you to take part. These include over 350 clubs and societies at our Students' Union, and sporting facilities offered through University of Sheffield Sport and Physical Activity.
