1992

Description

Sheffield Hallam University was founded in 1843, originally as the Sheffield School of Design and in response to the industrial revolution, in which Sheffield established itself as a leading centre for steel production.

Granted university status in 1992, the university is now the sixth largest in the UK with over 30,000 students, including 4,000 students from overseas.

The university has two campuses: City Campus is at the heart of the city and located near to Sheffield railway station; and Collegiate Campus, which is a couple of miles further out and surrounded by green space. Both comprise Grade-II listed buildings alongside more modern facilities.

It offers over 700 courses for students to choose from, with more than half its courses including an integrated work placement or similar.

The university prides itself on its health and social care courses, teacher training, and sport and physical activity. Its most popular courses by enrolment numbers are in business and administrative studies, medicine, and biology.

Sheffield is the UK’s fifth largest city and, with more than 60,000 students resident, it has a reputation for fun and friendliness.

It's also safer than other big cities, according to the 2013 UK Peace Index, which judged it to be an easy-going and tolerant place to live.

As well as laying claim to art galleries, culture and a thriving music scene, Sheffield is the greenest city in England, with over 200 parks and more trees per head than any other city in Europe.

It's also located close to the Peak District National Park, an area of outstanding natural beauty, while the neighbouring northern cities of Manchester and Leeds are within easy reach.

The university has an excellent campus, particularly the Adsetts building and Business School, and i'ts clear that there is constant investment in improving facilities. Some improvements could be made to the library, which is rather small and to the gyms which are again small yet extremely busy. In terms of teaching, the level is generally very good, and lectures and seminars have a lot of variation. For my course though, I feel like materials could be a bit more practical as I'm yet to use a lot of things while working. Importantly I had the opportunity to spend 6 months studying on Erasmus, which really helped my Spanish and other skills, such as adaptability and becoming more independent. The university puts a lot of emphasis on employment which is essential, and they provide a lot of help in finding graduate jobs. I'd say the most important part of my degree is the year spent working abroad, which has improved myself massively.

It’s very good University and students would feel it as second home. I personally had great experience. Being an international student, the university atmosphere was warm and pleasant. The staffs are supportive and professors guides the students to excel in their academics. The student support centre also helps and acts in any queries quickly. The facilities are way beyond great. I would recommend this university to all students who want to start their university life for bright future.

Ya, I would because of affordable fees and the atmosphere in the city. I would also recommend for the support from the student union. And the location of the university is so close to the city centre.

Sheffield proved to be a great city choice to live and study in 1999, and I've since stayed on in the city and built a life here. Sheffield Hallam provided fantastic student support services (something I used for various reasons), and a great city centre based campus. They were the leading University at the time for my chosen course, and I could see why straight away. The quality of the lectures, lecturers and facilities were brilliant and I'd have no hesitation in recommending both the city and the university to anyone considering it. I also now have the pleasure of attending the university to provide a guest lecture on my now chosen profession to both undergraduates and post grads, and it's clear to see the advancements and developments in the facilities have gone from strength to strength.

The university as a whole is in an amazing city, it’s student-friendly and easy to get about. The courses offered are brilliant and ideal as have a wide scope of different modules to choose from. In terms of being there for student, this current academic year has been affected majorly due to strikes and COVID. Lecturers have been non-responsive and difficult to contact when learning from a distance. Students have been expected to essentially teach themselves this year and it’s been very unorganised.
