About Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam University is a public university in South Yorkshire. It has two sites, one being the City Campus near Sheffield train station and the other being the Collegiate Campus around 2 miles away. Out of 167 universities in the United Kingdom, it is the 11th largest, with more than 30,000 students and 700 courses. The roots of the university go back to 1843 with the founding of the Sheffield School of Design. This became the Sheffield School of Art in 1851. The Sheffield City Training College opened on the Collegiate Campus in 1905 and accepted both men and women as students, unlike many other colleges at the time. Sheffield Polytechnic was formed in 1969 when Sheffield School of Design merged with other city colleges. Several new buildings were constructed over the years. The Polytechnic college became Sheffield Hallam University in 1992, when it gained the right to award degrees.

Since 2005, the university has been organized into four faculties. The Faculty of Arts, Computing, Engineering and Sciences encompasses media, arts, mathematics, engineering, and computing. The Faculty of Development and Society includes environmental science, education, architecture. English, history, psychology, social studies, and law. The Faculty of Health and Wellbeing consists of biosciences and chemistry, nursing, midwifery, social work, and sport. The final faculty is now the Sheffield Business School, covering finance, accounting, hospitality, language, and management. The university has 30 research centres ranging across subjects in these areas. Notable alumni include Nick Park, the animator who created Wallace & Gromit and won 4 Oscars.

Studying at Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam University has invested more than £100 million into improving the facilities for students over the last five years alone. If you study at the university, you will have access to 24-hour libraries, study areas designed by and for students, and the same equipment you can expect to use in your future career. It is an excellent university for research and is ranked in the top ten most affordable UK cities for student living. Sheffield Hallam University also offers top-up degrees for students who only have partial qualifications to convert them into a full degree. There are plenty of courses for prospective students to choose from, whether they are undergraduate or postgraduate level.

There is a free shuttle bus running between the two campuses, which takes around 10 minutes each way, making it easy for students to get around. There are weekly campus tours run by students, so visitors can come to see what the university is like in person. The tours run at 11am and 2pm every Wednesday, with a separate student accommodation tour available at 12.30pm. Places on these tours need to be booked in advance. These tours are not specific to a course, so future students should attend an Open Day if they want to learn more about their own course. Contact the university to find out about attending Open Days for undergraduates, postgraduates, clearing, or even teacher training.
