Taster sessions

Our online taster sessions help Year 12 students experience what it is like to study at the University of Sheffield.

The following taster sessions are aimed at any Year 12 pupils who have not yet submitted their UCAS form, and are therefore not holding any offers with the University of Sheffield. Any pupils who are offer holders and book onto a taster session will instead be invited to join us for our Virtual Applicant days from December to April.
 
If the subject you're interested in isn't listed in this table please register your interest in a taster day session and we'll let you know about any upcoming dates.
