Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam is one of the largest universities in the UK, with an excellent track record and exciting future.

We place huge emphasis on offering the highest quality learning environment that inspires students to succeed.

We're innovative and ambitious, with an excellent reputation for the quality of our teaching.

And we're in the top five modern universities in the UK for research, with 65% ranked internationally excellent or world leading in the REF 2014.

Above all, our teaching and learning and research aim to develop practical solutions to complex, real-world challenges.

With more than 170 years of history, today we recruit 67% of our home students from within the wider city region, contribute an annual £424m to the city region economy and engage with over 56,000 school and college pupils a year from neighbourhoods with low numbers going on to university - encouraging them to participate in higher education.

At the heart of a great city, responding to rapid change, we have new leadership and a renewed focus on playing a leading role within the wider city region. We're looking forward to an even brighter future as the UK’s leading applied university.
