Sheffield Hallam University

Our community of 33,000 students and over 4,000 staff help to make Sheffield the city we love. 1 in 10 people in the city are students, and thousands of our graduates stay in Sheffield after they finish their course, starting businesses and families, and contributing to the local economy.

Excellent teaching is at the heart of what we do. Our lecturers bring their subject to life with their knowledge and expertise, and leading employers help develop our courses and deliver guest lectures.

Our partnerships with businesses, throughout Sheffield and beyond, give our students the real-world experience they need. We provide 19,000 work placements every year – one of the best track records anywhere in higher education.

We have invested £72m in new facilities in the last three years, helping to shape the Sheffield landscape with new spaces like our landmark Charles Street building and our stunning renovation of the old Head Post Office in the city centre.

We are also one of the top 5 modern universities in the UK for research, with 65% ranked internationally excellent or world leading. Whether we’re tackling obesity in South Yorkshire or helping satellites journey into deep space, we focus on research that has a real impact on society.
