Postgraduate campus tours

We're offering prospective postgraduate students the opportunity to visit Sheffield and undertake guided tours of our campus.


Explore our campus

Our student-led walking tours are a great opportunity to visit some of the most widely-used facilities on campus. We’ll take you inside some of our iconic buildings including our award winning Students’ Union, our outstanding library facilities, and some of our larger academic buildings which host lectures, seminars and labs. The tour takes around 90 minutes, and covers an area of about a mile.

A member of our team of student ambassadors will lead your tour. Feel free to ask your tour guide any questions you may have about postgraduate student life at Sheffield and they’ll do their best to answer, or point you in the direction of further helpful information. A member of staff from the Campus Tour team will also be available on the campus tour stand before and after the tour to answer any other questions you might have.

Department visits

Some academic departments offer the opportunity to visit after your campus tour - these are listed on the booking form. Bookings for department visits close one week before the tour. Please check later tour dates if just ‘Campus tour only’ is listed.

If you’re not sure which department your course or subject area of interest is in, you can visit our online postgraduate prospectus and search for your course. If you’re still unsure, or if you have any other questions, please contact us at

Please note, if you book a campus tour with a department visit, the department will be in touch over the next few days with more details.
