Course Talks

Delivered by one of our academics, these talks aim to give an insight into what studying an Art and Design degree with SIA is like, and can focus on any A+D course currently on offer.

Details of course content, entry requirements and portfolio guidance can all be covered as part of these sessions.

Course talks can be delivered within your institution, or as part of a visit to Sheffield Hallam University.
