International student live webchats

Whether you have already applied for a place here at Sheffield or are just thinking about it, why not join in one of our online webchats? They are a great way for you to get your questions answered in an informal and easy way.

University staff and current students will be taking part in webchats throughout the year. We will be able to answer your general questions about applying for study at Sheffield, your offer from Sheffield, preparations for arriving in the UK and much more.

Our schedule of webchats is below.
