Meet and Greet service: September 2024

The University's Global Campus team will be running a Meet and Greet airport pick-up service from Manchester Airport to the University of Sheffield from 14 September to 28 September inclusive.



The service is offered to all new international students

Coaches will take students from Manchester Airport to the University campus area in Sheffield. There will be two coach departures from Manchester Airport each day, at 11am and 3pm.

Students will be met at Manchester Airport and accompanied to Sheffield by members of our student Global Campus Ambassador team.
