The best way to find out about a university is to see it for yourself. Coming on an open day or event can be crucial in helping you decide where - and what - you want to study. So we do everything we can to make sure you get all the information you need.
There are lots of ways to visit. Which one you choose depends on what kind of course you're interested in and what you want to find out. Here are our upcoming events.
2 November 2014
These are our general open days, where you can find out about all our full-time undergraduate and PGCE courses. There are exhibition areas where you can meet our staff and students, and tours of our campuses, accommodation and Sheffield city centre.
Watch our open days video on YouTube to find out how to make the most of your visit.
