Open Days

Upcoming open days Online webinars

When you attend an open day you'll have the chance to talk to staff and students, ask them how our world-class research drives our teaching and find out how what you learn at Sheffield can help you on your way to making a positive impact in the world.

Register for an open day 

For students living further afield, we understand it isn't easy to attend an open day in person. We also offer the opportunity to attend an online webinar, where you'll hear from an academic about our courses and have the opportunity to ask questions.

Register interest  we will email you when our next webinar is running.

Below students Maria and Daniel explain why they chose Sheffield, and what it's like now they are here.
