Why study at the University of Sheffield?


Choose an undergraduate or postgraduate preparation programme and select the relevant subject route for your interests. Once you complete the programme and achieve the required grades, you can enter your chosen degree at the University of Sheffield.

Student life

Born in Colombia. Made in Sheffield.

A huge thing I think international people get from the College is our main group of friends. We have the same classes, we are all in a new country with a new language and new people. We have that bonding. Then that just continues on in life after university.
