Do your research!
Global Opportunities & Exchanges Fair
If you are interested in Study Abroad you should come to the Global Opportunities & Exchanges Fair in the Octagon from 11am to 3pm on 25th October 2018 to meet students who have been on Study Abroad, as well as students from host universities and to pick up information from our partners.
This is the best opportunity for you to find out more and get a firsthand student perspective on study abroad.
We offer a drop in service (no booking required) during the application period. This is a chance for you to ask a member of Global Opportunities staff questions you may have about your application and the universities you are considering. We will also have Global Opportunities Ambassadors there so you can have a student perspective too.
Drop in happens every Wednesday, between 2pm and 3pm, in Information Commons IC4.02, from 31st October to 28th November 2018.
Where can I go?
Please refer to Where Can I Go? Guide, which you can download on the right, for the most up to date information, and remember to discuss your options with your departmental study abroad adviser. Find out more about our partner institutions.
How to apply
Study Abroad MOLE organisation
We have set up a Study Abroad MOLE organisation to help guide you in researching your options. Please email firstname.lastname@example.org to request access. We will need at least one of the following pieces of information to add you:
- Your student number (on your ucard)
- Your Sheffield email address
- Your username
The online application will only be available through the Study Abroad MOLE organisation during the application period, which opens on the day of the fair, so it is essential to join it to be able to apply.
Deadline for applying
The deadline for submitting your online Study Abroad application is 5pm on 1 December. You should print a copy of your application and give this to your study abroad adviser as soon as possible after you have submitted online. Your study abroad adviser then has two weeks to write references for all their students, so to help them in this, please meet with them at least once before submitting your application so they know you and your reasons for applying.
