University open days 2016

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.

Open day

Undergraduate open day

Our open days are a great opportunity for you to meet lecturers and students, see our campuses, accommodation and find out about our courses.

You can visit our mock hospital wards and meet the breathing, talking medical mannequins; take a tour of our sports facilities, including the English Institute of Sport, where Olympic champion Jessica Ennis-Hill trains; check out the student work in our brand new home for art and design, a stunning grade II listed building we’ve redeveloped; practice your debating skills in our on-campus courtroom. Plus much more.

Course open days

Course Open Days are focused on a particular course or subject area. They're mainly aimed at people who have been made an offer to study an undergraduate degree here in 2016, but if you just want to find out more about a course or get a feel for the University, you're welcome to join us.

We don't run these events for courses such as healthcare or teaching, where we hold selection events instead. If you want to study these courses and would like to visit, please attend one of our general undergraduate open days or a student led campus tour.

Virtual exhibition

International online open days

We realise that it isn't easy for our international students to attend our open days in person so we bring our open days to you. Our online open days are an opportunity to ask any questions about your course, living in Sheffield, visa support, the application process, entry requirements, accommodation, careers support and more.
