Information for Current Students

Our Commitment

Our Commitment is a partnership document between teachers and students as members of the University. It sets out what we all commit to do to ensure the best learning experience. It has been written by staff and students and is collectively owned by the University and the Students’ Union.

In this section you will find helpful information for current students on courses in the School of Nursing and Midwifery.

We are dedicated to supporting our students not only in their academic studies but in all aspects of University life. If you can't find what you are looking for on these pages please contact your Programme Coordinator, they will be happy to assist.

Have your say...The National Student Survey...

The National Student Survey is open from 8th January to 30th April. It is open to all final year undergraduate students and gives you the opportunity to voice your experience of your course.  Your feedback will be used to help shape the future for fellow students.

The information provided by students is extremely important to both the School and the University in that it allows us to respond to issues that students may have and to build on our strengths as a School.

Thank you in advance for completing the questionnaire - we very much appreciate your input, especially at a time of year when, as we know, you may be experiencing a certain amount of survey fatigue.

Feeling homesick or struggling to settle in..?

The first few weeks of the semester are often the time when students will be feeling homesick, not settling in or struggling to make connections. For most this can be a normal phase of their transition but for those who feel they need a bit of support Sheffield Mentors can help!

Our peer mentoring scheme matches new students with continuing students from the same discipline. By providing informal support and information mentors can help with the first steps into university life.

New students can still apply for a mentor here:
