Information for current students
We are really happy that you are studying with us and we want to help you make the most out of your time with us. The information below is relevant for current undergraduate and postgraduate students.
We're here to help
Your personal advisor
Your personal advisor is here to provide you with one-to-one support and advice. You will meet at the beginning of your course, and then at least once a semester. If you need advice or support at any other time, you can telephone or email your personal advisor and arrange to pop in.
Your lecturers and tutors
All of our teaching staff hold regular office hours where you can either drop in or make an appointment to discuss anything relating to your experience of any module. Take advantage of this opportunity to clarify any issues you have regarding assessment, coursework or the content of tutorials and lectures.
Office hours are publicised on posters around the building, can be found in the Virtual Office on MOLE or you can always ask your tutor.

Handbooks and Course Information
Each year we publish comprehensive handbooks for both undergraduate and postgraduate students on MOLE. These handouts outline everything you need to know about your course (from how to hand in assessments to how your work is marked) and we encourage you to make a habit of referring to it along the way. You'll also find links on MOLE for each of the modules you take with us. Here, your tutors will publish handouts, lecture slides and other information you need for the module. You can access MOLE through MUSE. If for any reason you cannot find your modules listed there when you log in, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll help.
MOLE is also home to our 'RTB Virtual Office'. If you don't have time to stop by Victoria Street, you can download everything you need online and find out the answers to some important questions.
Here, you will find details of the kinds of classes or modules that you may take for a BA in Religion, Theology and The Bible or for your Religion side of our Philosophy and Religion degree. Note that we are constantly developing our courses so it is possible that the modules running during your time at Sheffield may differ from those currently available.
BibSoc is the society for Religion, Theology and the Bible courses run by students for students. As well as socials, BibSoc focuses on bringing together students and providing opportunities to meet new people and ask questions that only another student can answer. BibSoc puts on a wide variety of socials ranging from the traditional Christmas meal and End of Year Ball to less traditional events such as laser tag and theatre visits. This year the team will also be organising educational trips.
The Faculty of Arts and Humanities
We are part of the Faculty of Arts and Humanities. The Faculty brings us together with the School of English, the School of Languages and Cultures, the Department of Music, the Department of Archaeology and the Department of History. This provides a more coherent, interdisciplinary and interactive experience for dual honours students and for our postgraduate students.
Student Ambassadors for Learning and Teaching (SALT)
The Student Ambassadors for Learning & Teaching (SALT) scheme is a dynamic, creative and inspiring network of students working on Learning & Teaching projects. Why not consider stepping forward to be an ambassador?
Student ambassadors for Open Days and Widening Participation
When you visited the University, did you meet a current student who inspired you to apply and accept your place? Did you go on a campus tour that made a difference to the way you saw The University and the city? As a school pupil, did you ever attend a workshop or join programme that encouraged you to dream bigger and aim higher?
The University runs a Student Ambassador scheme that will give you the opportunity to work with young people to raise aspirations and promote higher education, and to work undergraduates and postgraduates thinking about studying here.
The scheme recruits annually and offers paid work.
Want to help us?
Each year, we recruit a team of Religion, Theology and the Bible Student Ambassadors who will work on projects based on campus and in the Faculty with schools, colleges, community groups and prospective students.
To express an interest in becoming a Student Ambassador, email us at: email@example.com
Make a change
Make the most of your time here by feeding into the way we work. Influence change and have a say.
Your feedback counts
Each year, you'll be given the opportunity to evaluate, anonymously and openly, your experiences of studying with us. We take your feedback seriously and it is discussed at committee level.
Join a committee
The Staff-Student Committee meets once a semester to formally discuss how the course impacts upon your experiences here. The committee is made up of staff and elected student representatives. You can raise any issues with your representative which they will bring up at the meeting. Recommendations will be passed to relevant groups. Find out more about the Staff-Student Committee and who this year's student representatives are.
There is also a Faculty of Arts Staff-Student Committee and a Teaching Committee who discuss curriculum development, and existing courses and modules.
