Welcome to Sheffield from the Deutscher Verein!

In German we believe that a good social life is essential: it creates a community and is good for learning. The DV committee welcomes you to Sheffield.

Willkommen zu Deutscher Verein Sheffield!

We are the University of Sheffield’s Germany society for students of German, German-speaking students, and anybody else who has an interest in Germanic culture. We have a jam-packed schedule for the next year so come and join us! My name is Brad Hampshire and I am the DV president. Alisha Mallya is our secretary. We are both 4th years students of German and we have a great team ready to make your time at Sheffield a bit more fun. 

For newcomers at the university, we will be organising a welcome event as a ‘Give it a Go’. A great chance to meet people when you arrive in Sheffield.

During the year we have German themed events ranging from bar crawls and movie nights to meals out and our regular Stammtisch. There is also potential for a trip to Germany with Berlin and Cologne being previous destinations. Our socials are inclusive for all, so regardless of your interests, be it culture or socialising, we have something for you!
