In the School of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Sheffield, we believe that our teaching and research are strengthened by our international links. We currently have more than 250 overseas students from more than 40 different countries. Our academic staff have come from across Europe and as far as Asia and South America to conduct research and teach the next generation of mathematicians. Many of our staff from the UK have either worked or studied at universities abroad too.
New international students join our degree programmes every year. Through the University of Sheffield International College and our partnership with Nanjing Tech University, we have been able to offer alternative routes to studying mathematics at the University of Sheffield. Undergraduate students also have the chance to spend a year of their degree studying mathematics and statistics in another country, for a truly global experience.
Mathematics is an international subject, and our international diversity allows us to tap into a wide pool of talent to solve problems and bring wider perspectives to our teaching. Our students meet mathematicians and statisticians from lots of different backgrounds, and graduate prepared for the global workforce.

English Language Requirements
If you have not already studied in a country where English is the majority language, it is likely that you will need to have an English language qualification. Our English Language Teaching Centre offers courses for students who are preparing to study at the University of Sheffield.
