CITY College, International Faculty of the University of Sheffield
CITY College, International Faculty of the University of Sheffield, is one of the six faculties within the University and the only one operating overseas. Bridging the UK with the South East and Eastern Europe, the International Faculty offers to students the unique opportunity to study for a top class British degree of the University of Sheffield in their region.
Stretched across borders, the International Faculty embraces internationalisation and gives to its students the experiences, curricula and traditions of the University. We aspire to transfer knowledge, in-depth research and academic excellence across the region through our education hubs.
With its main campus located in Thessaloniki, Greece, the International Faculty consists of four academic departments - the Business Administration & Economics Department, the Psychology Department, the Computer Science Department and the English Studies Department - and offers a wide range of undergraduate, postgraduate and Research degree programmes in the disciplines of Business Studies, Psychology, Computer Science and English Studies. Today, apart from Thessaloniki, the Faculty also offers the University’s programmes in a number of other locations across South East and Eastern Europe, namely Sofia (Bulgaria), Belgrade (Serbia), Bucharest (Romania), Kyiv (Ukraine), Yerevan (Armenia), Tbilisi (Georgia) and Baku (Azerbaijan) and is continuously expanding, dedicated to its outreach mission.
Academic research represents the backbone of our philosophy and practice. The International Faculty fosters and promotes cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and innovation, providing a supporting environment for the academic staff’s research activities within all academic departments. To further promote research, we have established the South East European Research Centre (SEERC), which carries out substantial research within the region.
The dynamic international environment of the University of Sheffield International Faculty comprises students and highly qualified faculty members from more than 15 countries. This unique mixture adds even more to the overall learning experience in a truly unique international environment.
