We expect a lot from our students, but we also give a lot back. Your journey with us doesn't start and finish with your degree. It's a lifelong relationship. During your course your personal tutor will be there for you to help out with any academic or personal issues that may come up. You can also raise any concerns at our staff/student committee, who will make sure your voice is heard.

There's a strong sense of community at Sheffield University Management School - we benefit from having everything, including the Student Experience Office, Courtyard Cafe, IT facilities and Employability Hub, under one roof so students feel like they can spend the day in the school. It's a collaborative space, with plenty of break-out areas for student to enjoy a bit of time away from studying.

When you're looking for employment, you'll still have our Employability Hub on your side. If you set up your own business, we're still here to turn to for guidance and advice.
