Sheffield Children’s University (CU) at Star Mandarin School


- Open to children attending Sheffield Schools only

1. Introduction
The Confucius Institute Star Mandarin School is a Learning Destination where the children/young people can earn CU award credits because of their extracurricular studies with us. We provide Mandarin Chinese, Maths and Arts tuition at Bartolome House, School of Law, the University of Sheffield, over the weekends.

2. What is CU award credits?
Sheffield Children's University (CU) is part of Sheffield City Council, and is now working in partnerships with the University of Sheffield (UoS) and Hallam University, to encourage children and young people to develop essential life skills by takin part in learning activities outside school hours.
One credit is awarded for each hour of learning that takes place. These are then converted into awards:
Bronze (30 hours), Silver (65 hours), Gold (100 hours)… CU Degrees (400 hours) … CU Master Degrees (800 hours) … and these continue right up to 1000 hours!

3. Why do we join CU Credits?
Sheffield Research shows that children who take part in CU activities:
• do better at school
• achieve higher results in SATs and GCSEs
• exceed expected results
• make more progress than other children
They also tend to have more confidence, motivation, and higher self-esteem.
