Sheffield Hallam university physically and educationally at the heart of its city and region. It attracts remarkable students from the locality, the nation and globally. It has exceptional staff. It is well-placed to make a genuinely distinctive contribution to the world – shaping futures through outstanding education and by providing practical solutions to tough problems. Together, we will provide compelling answers to the challenges of the twenty-first century.

In the National Student Survey, several subject areas at SHU have performed very well in terms of overall student satisfaction with their courses: for example, architecture and geography have both been placed first, and planning has been placed second.


Sheffield is friendly, creative and scenic – and best of all, it’s surprisingly cheap.
Sheffield’s cost of living is well below the national average, and thanks to the 60,000-strong student community you’ll find discounts around every corner. Which makes it all the easier to explore our unique mix of city life and green space.

The great thing about studying in Sheffield is that the city is geared towards you. From the shops to the student bars and everything in between, you’ll find something for you.
It is the UK’s fifth largest city, but 60% of Sheffield is made up of green spaces like parks, gardens and countryside. There’s a ton of places to relax in, or you can walk, run, cycle, climb and swim in the nearby Peak District National Park.
Plus, you can immerse yourself in Sheffield’s underground art, music and culture scenes.
We have iconic gig venues, the UK’s largest community of artists and designers outside London, and a calendar of major festivals covering everything from food to film.

Sheffield Hallam university was reorganised into four faculties. The new Faculty of Development and Society, with an emphasis on ‘people, places and spaces’, brought together education, geography, humanities, law, and social sciences. At the same time, with the intention of further developing research and teaching in the new Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, a new Clinical Academic Group was launched. The building that had been designed and constructed to house the National Centre for Popular Music became the university’s students’ union building (the HUBS). The Nelson Mandela Building, the former students’ union building, was sold and has since been demolished.

With 60,000 students in Sheffield, you’ll never be short of things to do. At Hallam you’ll have tons of chances to get involved with your student community, through activities, sports, volunteering and your Students‘ Union. Plus there’s plenty of support here to help you study and enjoy your time here.

And if you join Hallam Active, you’ll have access to both of our gyms, your own personal trainer, and over 80 classes a week in everything from aerobics to Zumba. And if you compete at the highest level, our Performance Athlete Support Programme helps you balance your studies with achieving your sporting potential.
