    Hi
    Looking forward to moving to Sheffield in September :-) just wondering what parking is like for students? Would I be able to securely keep a car at my student residence?


    Posted from TSR Mobile
    Good morning

    Thank you for choosing Sheffield, we look forward to seeing you in September. As the university campus and the city are quite compact and things are within walking/cycling distance, we normally advise students to only bring a car if it's absolutely necessary. However, we also appreciate that using a car is a necessity for some and you can buy a student parking permit.

    Further details of the permit system (and links to a map showing the location of car parks at Endcliffe and Ranmoor) are available from:

    Best regards

    Hi, I've received a place at sheff uni to study English literature with the entry requirements AA Distinction, however my English language teacher has been giving me misguided advice and marking my coursework incorrectly, and now it seems that I'm likely to get AB Distinction instead, would I still be offered a place as I feel I've been cheated out of a place at my first choice uni, is there anyone I can talk to about this issue?

    I'm really sorry to hear about the problems you've had with your English studies and the worry this is causing you. Please contact our Applicant Information Desk (AID) and one of our trained advisors will be able to give you some one-to-one advice:

    Good morning

    Thanks for your post . I think it would be best to resolve this discussion via private message and I've sent you an email with details of staff in our International Office who can help.

    Morning all

    I'm pleased to announce that we now have a University Facebook group for students who are coming to Sheffield in September.

    Enjoy!

    Hello,

    In my graduate application essay I referred to Sheff as "Sheffield University" rather than "The University of Sheffield". Will this be heavily frowned upon by the admissions committee? Would it be acceptable to contact them and amend this mistake?

    Thanks

    Please don't worry about referring to The University of Sheffield as Sheffield University. Staff, students and applicants use both terms interchangeably so there's no need to contact anyone nor make any changes to your application.

    Hi,
    I've firmed Architecture for this year, and just have a few questions

    How many people are there on the course generally? And will we get any information from the department about what resources we should buy before we start uni? Like what's a suitable laptop to get (i.e. for CAD use) model making materials, paper etc

    Also, how many people applied for the K100 course this year, and how many offers did you give?
    Thanks

    Good morning all

    If you need a quick refresher of what our beautiful campus is like, give yourself 5 mins 45 seconds to watch our campus tour video . Helen, who presents the video may look familiar - not only is she a Sheffield student, she's also appeared in Channel 4's comedy 'Raised by Wolves'.



    Enjoy!

    Hi,

    I'm just wondering what the protocol for visitors staying with students at uni accommodation is like? My boyfriend is going to be studying at King's College London whilst I'm going to Uni of Sheffield, so when he visits he'll be staying with me - are there any special forms or anything I/he would need to fill out?

    Good afternoon

    Thank you for asking about having visitors to stay overnight in university accommodation. Generally speaking, provided that the visitor is only staying on an occasional basis and your flat mates are in agreement about the person staying, then it’s not a problem. However, if you had opted to live in a single-sex flat it is extremely unlikely that you could have an overnight visitor of the opposite sex.

    If you do have an overnight visitor, you don't need to fill out any forms or anything like that.

    The university’s policy about visitors to university accommodation is given in detail in the accommodation terms and conditions (sections 4.24 to 4.29). You will receive a copy of this document with your contract but you can also download it from the right-hand menu on this webpage: http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/accommodation/prospective

    I hope that’s helpful.

    Have a good weekend

    Hi there i have a conditional offer for this sept for psychology and one of the conditions is to obtain a gcse maths c grade.

    Ive been studying so hard and was doing really well with mock maths papers but the exam was awful. A lot harder than past papers and im worried i will fail..

    So the question is would a grade D be accepted in some circumstances, and secondly how many applied and how many got places to study psychology out of interest.

    Sorry to be a pain im just worrying and thinking about worse case scenario, as ive quit my job to achieve my dream and study at sheffield

    Hi, I was wondering what are the chances of changing course? I have my firm choice as Business Management and Social Policy here at Sheffield, but I'd be interested in changing my course to Economics and Philosophy if I get the grades of course. Is the BA Economics and Philosophy course competitive and normally full? Thanks
