students at an open dayUniversity Open Days

The School of English puts on two different open days: pre application open days in the Summer, and post offer open days in the Spring.

Attending one our pre application open days is a great way to find out all about life at the University of Sheffield and what degrees are on offer from the School of English. We offer talks about our award winning accommodation, how to finance your university degree, the amazing opportunities to study abroad, and student led activities at our award winning Students' Union. As our campus is a 10 minute walk from the city centre you soon understand why our students love our vibrant, friendly city.

The School hosts talks about our four distinct single hours degrees, giving you the vital information about each one. There are also opportunities to find out about the flexible dual honours and combined honours degrees on offer from the faculty. You can chat to our renowned academics and current students informally over refreshments, the perfect chance to find out what it's really like at a top UK university.

Book your place

Our Spring post-offer open days are a chance to experience our teaching style in sample seminar groups about the subject you're passionate about. You can find out more about the support on offer from the School, and find out from current students what they love about Sheffield.

The post-offer open day gives you a real sense of what it's like being a student in Sheffield. The central Experience Sheffield exhibition has information about our award-winning accommodation, libraries and sports facilities as well offering campus tours.

Students who are made an our offer to study in the School of English will be invited to one our of Spring open days.
