At The Sheffield College, we go further to ensure that you get the best learning and cultural experiences possible to enhance your time with us. Whether that's through visits to local art exhibitions and museums, guest speakers coming in to demonstrate their knowledge and skills, or visiting major industry leaders so you can see how they go further in the real world.
Recently, we’ve taken students to New York, Beijing, London, Berlin, Morocco, Iceland, Bruges, behind the scenes at East Midlands Airport and British Airways HQ, Whitby and even Florence in Italy.
We also know how important extra curricular activities are not only to your CV, but also when it comes to enjoying your time at college! There’s a club and society for almost everything, from chess through to our Media Society – perfect for pursuing hobbies new and old, and meeting like-minded people who share your passions. Remember, if we don’t have what you’re looking for, we’ll help you to set up your own!
