Overview

Sheffield combines a bustling student city with access to the vast open countryside of the Peak District. It's green, lively, independent, safe, inexpensive and creative. Sheffield Hallam offers plenty of outstanding courses, and you'll be studying in Grade II listed buildings as well as brand new facilities. Although it's the UK's fifth largest city, Sheffield feels like a big village. Many students fall in love with it and choose to start their careers here after they graduate. The university is proud to be LGBT friendly and home to students from 125 countries around the world. It is placed in the top 35 universities in the country for student satisfaction and nearly 60 of the University's courses achieved an overall satisfaction of more than 90%, with 15 courses securing 100%.

 

 

nightlife

The nightlife in Sheffield is really varied, with many bars and clubs in the popular West Street district playing all kinds of music. Indie, rock, motown, 60s beats, drum and base - just to name a few. And because students are such an important part of the local economy, almost all of the city's bars, cinemas and restaurants offer a student discount, making your money go further. 

halls of residence

Inside your halls you'll make lifelong friends and memories. From spontaneous parties to movie nights, it's where some of your best university moments will happen. Sheffield Hallam have over 20 safe and secure halls of residence to suit all budgets and tastes, catering for both undergraduate and postgraduate students. All the halls are in popular student areas near our campuses. You're never more than a 20-minute walk from your lectures - and in most halls it's less than 10. The university offers private sector housing for postgraduates, whether this is a flat in the city centre or a shared house.

location

City Campus is right in the centre of Sheffield, just a few minutes' walk from the train station, and is surrounded by shops, cafés and pubs. Just a 25-minute walk away is Collegiate Campus which mixes some of Sheffield's best bars, markets and restaurants with stunning parks for studying in the sunshine.

clubs and societies

There are over 100 student-run societies covering everything from rock music to Harry Potter, campaigning, scuba diving and cheerleading. Whatever your interests, there will be something for you - and if not we'll help you start your own.

 

freshers' week

Your first two weeks are where it all begins. Fourteen days and nights to get to know your university, your students' union, and student life in Sheffield. There's loads of events, from a trip to Ikea to buy essential items for your room, to tucking into free afternoon tea at the Students' Union, and not forgetting Open Mic night to show off your hidden talents.

Staff are really supportive although communication about changes to courses is not always transmitted efficiently. The university is a great community though

Campus is good, the facilities are great. The course is good, but with little contact time and real life experience. Union is great and the open days are a blast. The union is good for food and a pint and also a game of pool. Some good quizes and also a great start to a nihht out. The uni is good, however info from lectures can be contradictory and the marking seems a bit all over the place. Careers service, do a lecture on it every term at least twice, which althougg is good it seems like theyre finding things to fill the time with so they dong have to teach.
