How do I contact the International Experience Team?

We are a specialist team supporting the international experience of all students in Sheffield Hallam University.

We provide:

  • specialist advice and support for international students pre-arrival, on-arrival and on-course which includes welcoming services, social transition support and visa advice;
  • advice and guidance to all students planning to spend a period abroad for study, course related placement or work experience;
  • opportunities for all students to engage globally on campus through projects which develop their intercultural skills and global awareness;
  • support for internationalisation through curriculum-based initiatives and extra-curricular projects.

We offer the following appointments:

    • Individual Skype appointments are available for emergency support and visa enquiries. Please attend a drop-in first. 
    • The International Experience Team are available for a drop-in on Skype for general enquiries, @SHUISST Monday – Friday 11am – 12pm, and 2 – 3pm. Just send a message, with your name and student number, and we will call you back – no need to book.
    • A virtual meet & greet desk will be available to help any new and returning students with any general questions you may have while preparing to start studies this academic year. You can contact us 9am – 5pm BST every workday between the Monday 7 September – Friday 2 October 2020. Please fill in this Virtual Meet and Greet form (offered via Zoom) to receive the secure link to our Virtual Meet & Greet Desk, and to provide details of your accommodation and quarantine arrangements on arrival.

    We promote opportunities for students to internationalise their experience at Sheffield Hallam University by engaging with their culturally diverse peers, or by going on an exchange abroad. Please visit our GoGlobal pages for more information.

    Throughout the academic year we also run an exciting programme of social activities and events for all students, such as our annual SHU Fest in March when the university comes to life with music, dance and art from across the globe.
