Sheffield Hallam University
Sheffield Hallam University’s history traces back to 1843 when it was founded as the Sheffield School of Design, born out of Sheffield’s reputation as a leading steel production centre during the industrial revolution.
After being granted university status in 1992, Sheffield Hallam has grown to become the sixth largest university in the UK, now home to over 30,000 students including 4,000 international scholars.
The university is spread across two campuses: the City Campus lies at Sheffield’s urban heart beside the central train station, while the Collegiate Campus rests amid greenery just a couple miles away. Both house a mix of heritage buildings and modern facilities.
With over 700 degree courses available, more than half integrate work placements or similar hands-on learning. Sheffield Hallam is particularly renowned for programs in healthcare, teacher training, and sports and exercise. Top enrolled courses encompass business, medicine, and biology.
From its history as a specialised vocational school to a large comprehensive university, Sheffield Hallam maintains its commitment to shaping students into work-ready graduates.
