Informal Visit Days
If you have any further questions or queries, get in touch with our campus tour team by telephone weekdays 9am-5pm or via email campustours sheffield.
Please look for the green campus tour sign to find your tour guides and register your attendance on arrival. Visitors should arrive at the Welcome Desk at least 15 minutes before the scheduled 1pm start. This will give you time to register your details and meet your guide before the tour begins. We are unable to guarantee latecomers a campus tour but the earlier you can let us know, the sooner we can try to make alternative arrangements for you.
If we are unable to organise a guided campus tour for you, you can take our self-guided campus tour. Copies of this can be obtained from the campus tour welcome desk upon arrival. You will be guided around the campus by one of our trained Student Ambassadors. Feel free to ask them any questions you may have regarding being a student in Sheffield and the course that they are studying. The campus tour is a walking tour so it is advisable to wear some comfortable footwear.
Also we would advise you to bring some suitable clothing if it is raining as most of the tour is outside. Although the campus tour will take you past most of the academic buildings, if you wish to visit a specific department and speak to a member of staff, then you will need to contact them directly at least two weeks prior to your visit to the University. Find the contact details for your specific department. At certain times of the year we are able to offer optional accommodation tours following the campus tours.
If this option is available to you we will inform you of this in your confirmation email when you sign up to the tour online.
Alternatively, if you apply to study here and are successful in being offered a place, you will be invited to an applicant open day. The University's sports facilities are approximately a 10 minute walk from the central campus, but the sports facilities are not included on the campus tour. As tours take place during a working day visitors are usually welcome to look around the facilities, provided there are no events that day. If you or a member of your party is a blue badge holder, please contact us at least 48 hours before your visit and we will try to arrange a parking space for you.

Applying to university: how to make an open day worthwhile
O pen days are not just a good opportunity for students; they also give family members an insight into university life. Instead, they are there to play a supporting role, to help students learn about a university. Hansom says this could include: researching transport and parking; times and locations of talks, tours and stalls you want to attend; downloading a map of the campus; and putting together a list of questions.
Originally published in University Teaching looks at the world of university and college teaching in the study of higher education. Providing a broad perspective, it examines preparation, assessment, and reward from cross-cultural perspectives and explores the cultural and social influences that affect these dimensions. The book provides a considerable richness in diversity of topics and authors, and provokes the reader to observe the many commonalities in the thinking and approaches towards college teaching that pervade the higher education systems worldwide.

How to choose between your university offers
The best way to get a feel for student life at Manchester is to come and see for yourself. But be warned: once you arrive — as many of our students have discovered — you may never want to leave. We are carefully reviewing all of our recruitment events in light of the developing coronavirus outbreak. This will include talks from previous open days, webinars, videos, features and images.
At the moment we are hoping that the 18 September Open Day will run but realise this may not be possible if social distancing is still in place. In the meantime, we are strongly committed to making sure you will have plenty of alternative online opportunities to discover Oxford and all that it has to offer you. Anyone thinking of applying to Oxford this October, should sign up for the latest news on developments in undergraduate admissions and outreach. Our admissions timeline will also give you a useful overview of the steps involved in making an application. Course choice is the most important decision you need to make when considering university so we suggest you start by exploring your course options.
