There are two kinds of open days you'll experience if you apply for a place in the Department of Journalism Studies.
First there's the University open day, then there's the Experience Journalism day here in the department.
University open days
You'll come to a University open day first, usually before you apply. These run from early summer through to autumn (typically June to October).
Book a place and you can take a look around the University campus and Students' Union and look at our accommodation. They're a great way to get a general feel for the University and the city of Sheffield. If you're interested in studying with us, this is the place to start.
Experience Journalism days
If you apply and we offer you a place on our BA Journalism Studies course, you'll be invited back to Sheffield for an Experience Journalism day.
Experience Journalism days are different from the University open day. In the morning, an exhibition at the Students' Union offers another chance to look again at University facilities. But after lunch you'll visit the Department of Journalism Studies. You'll get to meet your tutors and other Sheffield journalism students, look around your facilities and ask questions specifically about your course. It's the best way to get a real taste of life here in the department and help you make a final decision on which university suits you best.
These are our provisional dates for the next season of Experience Journalism days:
- Saturday 2 December 2017
- Saturday 17 February 2018
- Saturday 17 March 2018
- Saturday 21 April 2018
