My accommodation at exchange works is good as it is located between both the city centre and the university, the facilities are good also. __I enjoy my course (English Literature BA) and find the contact time sufficient for learning, the staff are all very helpful when needed. However I have found that the assessment tasks are not always made clear.__I have struggled to settle in to the university environment so far however upon reaching out for help from student support have received a lot of help and information which has made it easier for me to attend university more regularly. __Overall I have been very satisfied with my experience of Sheffield Hallam university.View more
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.View more
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.View more
Sheffield Hallam University was an excellent place to study and I would recommend it to everyone. On my Journalism course the content was varied and there were numerous opportunities to gain experience in the sector with placements and positions obtained by the University.
The course was informative and progressive which helped me form a broad knowledge of the subject as well as allowing me to specialise later on in the programme.
The social aspect was excellent with plenty of buzz around the city (as a University city with two large institutions this isn’t surprising) and I would recommend Sheffield as a place to study in general.
The only thing stopping me from giving it 5 stars is the facilities which were a little tired and outdated when I was there, although I am aware that now SHU has added more buildings and modernised their facilities somewhat.View more
