Fancy studying at a university abroad?

Students wanting to study at a university abroad can find out more at a unique fact-finding event at Sheffield Girls', as we are delighted to welcome Dr John Tabbert from US education specialists Duke Applications and Cheryl Grant from foreign university experts Degree Horizons on the evening of Wednesday May 2.

The event, which will take place in the main school hall off Rutland Park from 7–9pm, is open to any Sheffield students, and their parents, who want to find out more about applying for undergraduate opportunities overseas. To book a place at this free event, please email Carole Hall at Sheffield High School for Girls on

Catherine Tabbert, Senior US Consultant at Dukes Applications, said: “The event offers an introduction to tertiary education in the US, covering topics such as the differences between UCAS and the US system, admissions tests, personal essays and application timelines.

“It will also look at how undergraduate degrees differ in the US, both in length of years and through major and minor subjects”.

America is the world’s leading study destination for international students, with the US boasting nearly 160 leading universities across 130 cities attracting more than one million foreign students. 

Cheryl Grant from Degree Horizons will focus on degree courses available in Europe, many of which provide a cheaper alternative to studying in the UK.

Carole Hall, our Head of Careers, says “This event provides an exciting opportunity to find out everything you need to know about studying abroad so you can make an informed decision about your future and fulfil your potential as a global citizen. We are keen to welcome anyone with a sense of adventure to our school.”

Pupils from Sheffield Girls’ currently studying abroad include Amaka Uchegbu who is studying at Yale, Wonnie Song who is now at Harvard training as a lawyer and Olivia Noble who won a sports scholarship to the University of California.
