Sheffield Graduate Attributes
You can gain an impressive range of knowledge and skills whilst at University. We want these to be clear to you and to potential employers, so in 2005 we identified ‘The Sheffield Graduate’ attributes as part of our commitment to supporting your development. These have since been further refined, most recently to align with our Learning and Teaching Strategy (2016-21).
Some of the attributes are embedded within your course and others are complemented through access to an unparalleled range of extra-curricular activities.
