Staff Exchange Programme

From Monday 23 May, the International Experience Team hosted guests from all across Europe, including delegates from Spain, Poland and the Czech Republic for a week of Internationalising Student Support; they visited for a five day programme of seeing how the University supports students, as well as to learn about Sheffield itself.

There were talks from support services across the University, tours of the campuses and even some local Sheffield dialect! We had a fantastic time learning from each other and hearing how our cultures differed, leading to some lively debate on how best to  support and communicate with our students while they are studying.

The week was a great success and we’d like to think that our Erasmus visitors got as much out of the exchange as we did; hopefully we’ll get to go across to the continent and see how things work in their countries in the near future!
