Applicant days

Once you’ve applied, we’ll invite you to an applicant day. You will get to see more of your chosen department, meet staff and students and learn more about your course.

What is an applicant day?

Open day

Applicant days are for current applicants to the University of Sheffield. Book your place by following the link in your invitation email or by logging in to your MUSE account. 

What happens on an applicant day?

We have live talks taking place with each department, where you'll be able to find out more about your course, take part in short lectures and presentations, and explore our online content about your course.

You’ll have the opportunity to talk directly to a current student from the course you’re interested in via our Chat to US service. Our students are able to provide you with a real insight into the course you are interested in, and also what life at Sheffield is really like.

You can speak to experts in all areas beyond your subject, for example, finance, sports, careers, disability and dyslexia support and many more. 

You can also take a video tour of our award-winning student accommodation and visit the central exhibition, where expert staff will be on hand to answer your questions.
