Open Days

University Open Days are for potential applicants who are usually (but not always) in their AS Level year of study and are taking the opportunity to visit universities and departments. Open Days provide you with an opportunity to visit the University, attend different departmental presentations and learn more about being a student in Sheffield. During the day, we offer you the opportunity to visit our Department, where you take a tour of our building, join us for refreshments and meet academic staff and current students. 

At each Open Day, a presentation will be given by our Admissions Tutor  Dr Tom Moore or one of the other tutors from the Undergraduate programme.
