Alumni schools speaker series

Our alumni go on to exciting careers all over the world. Many of them keep in touch with us after graduation and welcome the opportunity to talk to students about the benefits of going to University, share their experiences and career journeys and answer questions.

We offer bespoke, general or subject specific talks and Q&A sessions, whatever works best for you. We may even be able to match you with a graduate who previously attended your school or college.

School Groups

We can arrange a visit with a tailored itinerary that can include a mix of sessions such as taster lectures, campus tours, applications and personal statement advice, an introduction to student finance and student life sessions with current students. Subject to staff availability, these visits can be arranged at any time in the year through the School and Colleges Liaison team.

Access Sheffield

Depending on circumstances, we may be able to give undergraduate applications additional consideration when we receive them.
