What is Sheffield Live?

We know that there’s a lot to consider when researching and choosing where to study. Our Sheffield Live sessions take place every Wednesday and cover all different aspects of University life to help you as you go through your application journey with us.

Sheffield Live runs throughout the year with sessions on different topics such as accommodation, student societies and extra-curricular activities. There are also student and alumni panels plus regular opportunities for you to hear from academic departments about study options and course information.

Who is Sheffield Live for?

Sheffield Live is open to everyone. This includes:

  • if you're based in the UK or are overseas
  • if you've already received an offer to study at Sheffield or are still exploring your options
  • whether you’re looking at undergraduate study or are ready to take on a masters or postgraduate research degree

From time to time there may be sessions which are only relevant to particular audiences but these will be clearly labelled.

Meet your department

Our Meet your department events are open to prospective undergraduate and postgraduate students. During the sessions you'll be able to:

  • Find out what's unique about studying in Sheffield
  • Meet staff and chat to current students from your chosen subject area
  • Ask questions about what it's like to be a student here and the opportunities available to you

Our next event takes place on Wednesday 30 November 2022*.
