The University of Sheffield campus is in the heart of the city and has everything you need within walking distance. You’ll find excellent facilities, study areas and the number 1 Students’ Union in the country.
The University of Sheffield International College is located on the main campus. As an International College student, you are welcome to join in with many of the events held by the University and Students’ Union. You can join societies, start your own club or get involved in campaigning for a better future as an associate member of the Students’ Union.
Students rate the University of Sheffield Students’ Union as the very best in the UK – it has been voted number 1 in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey every year since 2009.

Everything you need:
