I've just finished my second year here and I'm so glad I chose Sheffield Hallam University. I'm on an excellent course, great staff, great opportunities to do paid work & voluntary work, good careers advice, good student union... I really can't complain at all.

SHU to me is home and every time I see that bright pink lights as I come into the city I feel great. I love it, it has amazing facilities as a student and it is in a great location for both bars and transport but the building looks like the turned an old mental asylum into a university

I have mixed feelings about SHU. I had an interview for my Postgrad here and somehow it didn't feel right. Rejected the offer and decided to try universities in the south of England. Indeed I was offered better support at the start what made me feel super encouraged to continue my passions - remember if you have any doubts about... More

The university itself is average, it could do with being revamped. The lifts are pretty cool but dangerous, as they don't stop moving , you just have to jump on a moving elevator witch is scary. Its not really a great place to graduate from to my knowledge.

Not deserving however, of it's reputation as an inferior supply of education... More
