|What our students say||
"Attending the Sheffield open day largely contributed to my decision to study at the University. Having the opportunity to speak to staff from the Department of Sociological Studies, meet current students and explore Sheffield as a city provided me with a great insight into what it would be like to study and live in Sheffield.
"The Department of Sociological Studies at Sheffield stood out for me for its welcoming nature. Having the opportunity to discuss with staff about the different modules on offer and their own research specialism was a great way to learn more about the course and gave me confidence to choose to study sociology, without a social science background."
