Study abroad is currently open to all undergraduate disciplines except Journalism and Psychology.
Study abroad is a part of your degree; it's not a year out.
The modules you study overseas forms part of your Sheffield degree so it's very important that you look at which universities are suitable for your course and check that they offer relevant modules that interest you.
Academic Study Abroad Advisers
There are Study Abroad Advisers in each academic department. You must discuss your options with an adviser before you submit an application.
Their role is to give continual academic advice from when you are first considering study abroad, all the way through to when you return from overseas.
They help you identify relevant courses at the overseas universities, they are contactable while you're abroad, and they ensure you always meet your Sheffield degree requirements.
