University of Sheffield Exchange

Program Overview

Note: This program is projected to relaunch in Fall 2017.

The University of Sheffield Exchange program is ideal for students from a wide variety of academic backgrounds who want to study overseas and do their coursework in English.

The University of Sheffield’s school year is divided into semesters (late September to February and February to June). Students may only go for the full academic year.

The University of Sheffield has about 25,000 students, including 3,700 international students from over 120 countries. As a GEO student you will be integrated into the regular British academic program and take classes with both British and other international students.

Courses are available in a wide range of areas and students from diverse majors are able to find appropriate classes at Sheffield. Some of the areas of excellence are Animal and Plant Sciences, Ecology, Genetics, Chemistry, Biology, Biomedical Science, Molecular Biology, Archaeology, English, Geography, History, and Political Science.

You will also be able to arrange individual research projects. However, University of Oregon students may only undertake a research project with the advance written permission of Study Abroad Programs at the University of Oregon.

Application Process

Selection for the program is based on a review of the student's written application, transcripts, recommendations and completion of the interview process.

Please note that students cannot begin the interview process until both applications are complete.

Application fees are due at the time the applications are submitted and are non-refundable under any circumstances.

Student Life

This is a student exchange program in which you will directly enroll in courses at one of the University of Oregon’s partner universities.  Exchange programs differ from other study abroad options and do not necessarily include significant on-site student support services, such as academic advising, health & counselling services, planned excursions or social events.  Students most comfortable and successful in exchange programs typically have high levels of self-reliance, resourcefulness, and willingness to adapt to unfamiliar teaching styles and living arrangements.

Additional Requirements
