Departmental tutors

Contact information for departmental tutors.


These are the departmental tutors in each academic department, for both inbound and outbound students. Some departments have different tutors for European and non European destinations.

Inbound students

The departmental tutors should be your first point of contact for academic questions while you are in Sheffield.

Outbound students

The role of the departmental tutor is to give continual academic advice from enquiry stage right through to when you are overseas.

They help you identify relevant courses at the overseas universities, they're contactable while you're abroad, and they ensure you always meet your Sheffield degree requirements.

You must discuss your options with them before you submit an application.
