Come and visit us!
Whether you are just starting to thinking about your choices or are already holding an offer for one of our degrees, open days are a great opportunity to find out more about studying History at Sheffield and to get to know our staff and students.
|University pre-application open days||
Pre-application open days let you explore life at the University of Sheffield. You can learn about accommodation, finance, sports facilities and life at our award winning Students' Union.
Our campus tours allow you to visit our library, sports centre and Students' Union, while our accommodation tours take you to the student village to get a feel for where you would be living. We would also recommend having a look around the city; the University is a 10 minute walk from the centre and forms a major part of the city's vibrant, friendly atmosphere.
Our History talks give you the opportunity to find out about the History Department and our degree programmes and our Faculty Exhibition offers you the chance to informally chat to staff and current students.
|History post-offer open days||
You may have already been to a pre-application Open Day, but a department Open Day is different. It has a greater focus on departmental life so you can form a real impression of what it's like to study history at Sheffield.
You will be invited to spend a day in Sheffield where you can visit the Department to find out more about your chosen course, experience our teaching first-hand and talk to our students and staff. If you have applied to one of our dual degrees, you will also have opportunity to visit your dual department.
You will also be able to discover why Sheffield offers one of the best student experiences in the UK at our University-wide exhibition and get to know the University better through tours of the campus, libraries, accommodation and sports facilities.
Our history talk includes:

If you have received an offer we will send an email and letter inviting you to attend a post-offer open day including information on how to book your place.
Dual degree applicants
You will be invited to an open day by one of your departments - you will receive an invite from History if you have applied to our dual degrees with Politics, Philosophy or Sociology and should book onto the first session that includes registration at 9.30am. This will allow time for you to visit your dual department at 2pm.
If you have applied for a dual degree with Archaeology, English or a Language, you should choose their first session with registration at 9.30am. This will allow you to visit the Department of History at 2pm.
