Department of Chemistry – Dr Julie Hyde

Julie Hyde is a Senior University Teacher in the Department of Chemistry who has recently won a Senate Award for Sustained Excellence in Learning & Teaching and been named a Senior Fellow of the Higher Education Academy.

Julie has been teaching at the University of Sheffield since 2007 and is keen to ensure the students gain the learning and understanding they need for their futures.

The University’s unique partnership with Nanjing Tech University led to the creation of a pioneering new joint Chemistry BSc degree programme; Chinese students are taught at NJ Tech by our academics for three years before coming to Sheffield for their final year. This presented Julie with a career defining opportunity to share her expertise and passion for teaching. She was asked to create and deliver the three-year practical course for the programme, teaching students in Nanjing and helping them gain the skills and experience to launch international careers.
