Orientation Week 

Orientation Week will take place the week before the standard intro week for Autumn semester. More details to be announced at a later date.

If you are joining University of Sheffield later this year, consider taking part in Orientation! Due to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to confirm details of Orientation Week just yet, but you can still register your interest to recieve further information and updates as they are announced. We have some exciting ideas and hope to make more announcements in the coming weeks. Register your interest here for further updates!

Orientation week occurs the week before your Intro Week in either September or February. It offers a range of events and activities to meet fellow new students and complete important tasks.

Typical events include:

  • Tours of the campus and the Students' Union
  • Talks about immigration, banking, University registration procedures and support services
  • Workshops to help with study skills, managing your money and understanding British culture
  • Quiz nights, BBQs, karaoke, games and crafts evenings, a club night, cinema, sports sessions etc.

If you think you will benefit from getting to know Sheffield and the University before the rest of the students arrive in Intro Week, we recommend coming along.

Orientation Week is particularly useful for international students as you can find out about British culture, opening a bank account and immigration issues.
