Image of a Sheffield Graduate


By the time they graduate, our students will have gained an impressive range of knowledge and skills, obtained through their studies and by the additional activities they undertake whilst at the University.  We want these achievements to be clear to all, so we have identified 'The Sheffield Graduate' attributes.

The Attributes

All taughcapt programmes provide students with the opportunities to develop the Sheffield Graduate attributes.  Find out more about the attributes: what they mean, how your fellow students interpret them, and suggested activities to further develop specific skills.

TheGraduate Award Logo Sheffield Graduate Award

We recognise that students take part in many activities outside of or alongside their studies.  The Sheffield Graduate Award enables our students to reflect on and obtain recognition for these activities.

Learning and Teaching Strategy

The graduate attributes reflect the aspirations of our Learning and Teaching Strategy. We have recently consulted on, approved and launched our new strategy, 2016-2021, and as part of this will be making sure the attributes continue to reflect the breadth of academic experiences and opportunities for students at Sheffield.
