Sheffield Institute of Arts at Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Institute of Arts opened its doors in 1843 to supply creative support to the region’s manufacturers, in a bid to stay ahead of the growing global competition.

This relationship with the commercial and industrial continues today. Our students create in the real world through internships and placements with product designers, developers, filmmakers and fashion designers.
Our diverse community of staff, students and partners work as equals to deliver real innovation and creativity.

Sheffield Hallam University is in the top two modern universities in the UK for art and design research, with 81 per cent ranked as internationally excellent or world leading in the 2014 Research Excellence Framework.
