The University of Sheffield (TUOS) are very aware of just how challenging this year has been for students who are about to take the next step in their educational journey and have decided that undertaking a university degree course is the right choice for them.
Having access to appropriate IT equipment has been recognised, at National level, as being one of the most significant challenges students from groups that are currently under represented in Higher Education have faced.
We are particularly keen to support our new students, who will be progressing from our Sustained Widening Participation programmes, to ensure that they have the appropriate IT equipment to effectively undertake their chosen courses. To address this we have introduced a new Widening Participation (WP) IT Bursary for 2021 year entry.
We have chosen to partner with the JS Group, a company who have a long history of supporting students to utilise their Equipment Bursaries and who provide a wide range of pre- selected educational resources to support university level learning.
By providing this range of items, we hope that you will be able to select IT equipment that is specific to your individual requirements.
You will own any equipment that you purchase through the scheme and the JS Team will be there to support you with any ongoing advice you may need in respect to the items you purchase.
