International Students SheffieldWe are international

Sheffield University Management School offers a high level of support to our international students when you are considering applying, as well as when you arrive in Sheffield.

The University of Sheffield is a global community – last year it welcomed students from 117 countries around the world and we hope to build on this further in the future. We want you to reap every benefit from a British education and will nurture you in your chosen passion, whether it’s at undergraduate level or Masters. You will be taught by internationally-renowned experts in their field, enriched by our research-led approach and enjoy Sheffield – a cultural, friendly and safe city to live and make the most of your education.

Sheffield University Management School’s courses attract a diverse range of students – many graduates suggest that this was of great benefit to their study as not only did they expand knowledge of their subject, but also world-wide cultures and approaches to the world of business and finance. The international perspective a qualification from us offers is an invaluable asset and we are proud of the school’s global community.

An international faculty

We have a great number of international faculty members – around 40 per cent of Sheffield University Management School’s academics have an international background and are from overseas. Furthermore, a significant number of academic researchers in the School (although of UK origin) speak several international languages and publish work of an international nature and standard. International research at the School focuses on International Human Resource Management, Doing Business in Emerging Economies, International Strategic Alliances, International Business and Managing Multinational Enterprises, Export Marketing and International Consumer Research. The Management School also has a Visiting Scholar Scheme and in recent years several academics have been accommodated in Sheffield for visits of short and long term durations.

"The very international nature of students on the course has also been a major plus both in terms of making new friends from different countries and cultures to actually helping understanding modules with students being able offer their own experiences of different cultures being highly beneficial."
Oliver Raimond, MSc Management (International Business)

Get settled before starting at Sheffield

The university’s Residential Orientation Programme helps international students make an early adjustment to life in Sheffield, both academically and socially. From finding your way around campus before the crowds arrive to adjusting to British culture and using the public transport system, if this is the first time you have lived away from home and your country of residence is outside of north-western Europe, the orientation week is for you.
