Global Opportunities Fairfair

If you are interested in Study Abroad you should come to the Global Opportunities Fair in the Octagon from 11am to 3pm on 6th November 2019 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.

Drop in

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 will happen on Wednesdays and Thursdays, between 13th and 28th November 2019, in Arts Tower room 1.03.

How to apply

Study Abroad Blackboard (MOLE) organisation

We have set up a Study Abroad Blackboard (MOLE) organisation to help guide you in researching your options. Joining the organisation does not commit you to applying, but it is essential to join it to be able to apply.

Please email globalopps@sheffield.ac.uk to request access. We will need at least one of the following pieces of information to add you:

  • Your student number
  • Your Sheffield email address
  • Your username

The online application will only be available through the Study Abroad Blackboard (MOLE) organisation during the application period, which opens on the day of the fair.

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.
