Our outstanding teaching

You’ll learn in a variety of ways, including lectures, seminars, tutorials and independent study.

Depending on what course you take, you might do fieldwork, small-group work and take part in student-led seminars and group projects. Some of your work may be supplemented with online lessons. All these approaches encourage you to work independently and be curious about the world around you – skills that will set you up for life and work.

A powerful blend of teaching and research

Applied research is an integral part of the curriculum at the University of Sheffield. From the first year onwards, you’ll work alongside brilliant researchers on live projects as part of your course. This could mean solving a business problem, addressing a social issue or working with a community anywhere in the world.
