Arriving at the department

You will have booked to visit us 10am to 12.30pm or 2pm to 4.30pm on your offer holder day. Please arrive in good time for the start of your booked session, as we'll need to scan the QR code from your booking to register you.

Your arrival location is: Dainton Building, Lecture Theatre 1. You can view this on our interactive campus map, and there will also be lots of open day staff and ambassadors around campus to assist you.

If you arrive late for your booked session, please report to the general information stand on the Students’ Union concourse, where event staff will be able to help.

When booking, you'll be able to reserve a place for yourself and one guest at the department activities. To ensure safe venue capacities, the department will be unable to accommodate any additional unbooked visitors.

However, you're welcome to bring additional guests to accompany you on the day, and we would encourage these guests to take part in our range of central exhibitions and tours while the department activities are running.

Learn more about the School of Law and the opportunities available including careers support, student wellbeing and study abroad. Find out what studying at Sheffield is like directly from our panel of current students, and ask your questions.

We'll then take a walk over to Bartolomé House, the home of the School of Law, where we will continue the rest of the activities.

Taster session

Find out more about your chosen course, and join in with an interactive taster session delivered by one of our expert academic staff. 

You will attend the taster session for the course that you hold an offer. If you hold an offer for LLB Law and Criminology, you can choose whether you attend the taster session focused on either Law or Criminology. If you are unsure, please ask a member of staff on the day.
