Hi, I’m Ellie. As your Education Officer I’m responsible for academic issues related to your student life and representing the needs of our Postgraduate community

You are now a member of an award winning SU, and one that isn’t just for undergraduate students. However you want to engage with it, the SU is here for you, especially in these challenging times.

Our Student Advice Centre offers support with postgraduate specific issues such as funding and supervision. Our Students’ Union building is open and home to many outlets popular with postgraduate students. These include our own coffee house, ‘Coffee Revolution’ build your own salad bar, New Leaf, and laid back kitchen bar the Interval. We’ve over 350 societies, over 50 sports clubs, and events that appeal to all tastes. As you arrive you’ll be able enjoy Sheffield’s literary ‘Off The Shelf’ festival of words.

Over the years, we have seen postgrad representation falter in some areas, so your voice and participation is as important as ever, especially in the current climate. Our Students’ Union is stronger for your involvement, but regardless of how much you choose to get involved we will always be here to support you.
