Come and enjoy a first class student experience in the UK
Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey ranks Sheffield as second overall in the country. It was ranked joint first for its social life, library facilities and accommodation and the ‘University most people would recommend to a friend’.
Our Students Union was voted the best in the UK in the most recent Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. Through the Union you have access to a huge range of student societies that cater for just about every sport and hobby.
Career enhancement and overseas exchange
In a challenging employment market, potential employers increasingly value overseas experience. International Business Management students spend the second year of their degree studying at a university overseas and can take advantage of a range of exchange links available through our Erasmus scheme to study for part of the second year at a university in France.
The city of Sheffield is regarded as a desirable place to both study and live. We have a world-class University and although Sheffield is a major city it has kept its strong sense of community.
Well connected: Sheffield is in the heart of the UK and is well-connected by road and rail. You can reach London in just over two hours. Manchester and Leeds are about an hour away by either road or rail.
Stay Safe: Home Office statistics rate it as being one of England’s safest cities. Sheffield has all the facilities of a major city but is small enough to be compact and friendly. We take your safety seriously: Student Safety & Security
Green: Sheffield also claims to be England’s greenest city with 150 woodlands and 50 public parks, and one-third of Sheffield is within the Peak District National Park. If you enjoy hiking, running or cycling, it’s easy to access.
Culture: Culturally, Sheffield has award-winning theatres, cinemas and nationally renowned clubs. A far-reaching city regeneration scheme has transformed the city centre by adding public spaces such as the Millennium Galleries and the Winter Gardens. And for shopping, choose between one of Europe’s biggest malls at Meadowhall or visit some of the unique independent shops located near to the Management School on Devonshire Street.
Bars, Clubs, Nightlife and Music: Sheffield is world-famous for its music scene and there are many venues where you can enjoy live performance of all types of different kinds of music.
Sports: Sheffield has an international reputation for exceptional sporting facilities. In addition to the excellent University-run sports centre, the city is home to Europe’s largest outdoor artificial ski resort – Sheffield Ski Village – plus numerous health and fitness centres such as Don Valley Stadium for athletics, Ponds Forge for swimming and diving and Sheffield Arena for ice hockey.
The Management Society (ManSoc) is organised and led by our students. As well as offering members a range of social events and activities, committee members take responsibility for organising a programme of guest speakers.
SIFE (Students in Free Enterprise)
This scheme involves students in running a limited company, focused upon developing commercial projects that will provide funds to develop community schemes and activities. This involves working with local businesses and community projects as well as other opportunities with an international reach.
We recognise that some students may require additional personal and academic support outside the classroom. When you join the University you will be assigned a personal tutor. The role of the personal tutor is to provide individual help and advice on academic and personal matters at any time. Each student is encouraged to meet at least twice a year with their personal tutor; additional meetings and specialist support are also made available as and when required.
Undergraduate Student Staff Feedback Forum
This provides an opportunity to discuss general issues relating to academic programmes. Undergraduate students elect representatives to the Committee and meetings are held at least twice a semester. This enables the School to monitor programmes regularly and to ensure that their quality is maintained and enhanced.
