Concentated sulphuric acid act as an moderately strong oxidising agent.It can oxidised both metals and non-metals,and itself reduced to SO2.

C + H2SO4 --------------> CO2 + 2SO2 + 2H2O
Cu + H2SO4 ---------------> CuSO4 + SO2 + 2H2O
Thus, above two equations show the oxidising property of sulphuric acid.
