Good faculty and good teaching methodology
Sheffield Hallam University isn't bad at all. Could be better though.
Everything is nice. Love all the staff!
Firstly, Sheffield is a student friendly city! Studying at Sheffield Hallam University is a great experience. A very good infrastructure and teaching staff are some of the most basic positives. Added to that external services like Hallam help, Student union, career centre makes life more easier. Highly recommended.
The handling of COVID has been particularly poor. So many strikes I can't count and now I am graduating at a swimming pool. Really wish I had gone elsewhere.
Amazing uni loved my time here with the help from teachers
the teaching quality is the main thing with this university. truly amazing teaching and most of the teachers actually care about you as an individual student; if you're having any issues you can always speak to them.
everything exceeding my expectations
BA Hons Sociology Undergraduate. Pros: - + Teaching staff are excellent and bend over backwards to help with coursework, put on extra sessions, signpost you to help, help you evaluate ideas. Can't praise them enough. + Student Support Advisors will help you with any pastoral support and referring for extra support etc. Again can't praise my SSAs enough. + Liz from Inclusive support runs excellent allotment sessions Fridays, perfect to destress. + 24 hour library opening and a beautiful campus at Collegiate. + Security staff in libraries are always friendly, polite and will always do their best to help. Cons: - - Students union is toxic, has no bar / cafe facilities just an empty space and offices for staff & SU Officers. - Lack of academic society or any extra curricular activities at Collegiate campus. - Lack of any students union activities which appeal to mature students. - Younger students on the course respond aggressively and negatively to mature students on course
A good university, the student union needs work but never had any issues here.
Honestly? As a creative (games) arts student, I feel like my want to go into the industry has been utterly destroyed by the way the Uni and the staff (mainly those at the top of the course) chose to run my experience. There is clear favouritism with 3D being encouraged rather than 3D and whether you're a character artist or prop/environment artist, you will get more help being in the latter. My experience has been poor and my teacher for character art was one of the only few exceptions of this shoddy course. Go somewhere else if you want to be a character artist!
Great lecturers that make seminars and lectures fun and interesting
Love it first year has been amazing , 100% recommend
A great learning centre, great environment and the tutor are amazing and responsive to help at all times.
It’s a good uni and the lecturers work so hard but the management is not that good. Students union is like a graveyard for past enjoyment. Library facilities are great and open 24/7 even Xmas day. Enjoyed my time here but it has been hindered by the pandemic
Very supportive advisors and fantastic library, with various areas for different types of study (e.g collaborative, quiet, silent).
all pretty great, everything you'd really expect from a uni, nothing to complain about
Great, well recommended and fully welcomed by staff. Couldn't ask for more alongside the great courses on offer.
I love Hallam, especially with all the friendly people and lovely lecturers! The facilities just make me feel like I am home even though I am halfway across from the earth!❤️
Great! Always offering activities and advice! Super staff :)
Amazing have always felt welcomed and included
I worked in the Cantor building, which is decent but a bit disappointing mainly due to my course. The rooms were uninspiring considering its an art course (Game Art). Compared to other Hallam buildings I've visited, this could be greatly improved I think. I also never figured out how to get the wifi to work either and data was pretty bad there, but oh well.
Love the uni. WiFi is library often cuts out
The university is very clean and has several clubs and societies helping you engage in uni life.
I have enjoyed my time in hallam, I have little to do with societies and the union. But the staff are helpful and facilities are good
Brilliant infrastructure and decent faculties. Great location as well
Amazing supportive staff and a community feel around both campuses
Nice university loved it and I enjoy the events
One of the best universities highly focused on student development and growth with good resources and support.
Great university and lovely people - i would definitely recommend to anyone considering going to university and could not praise the teachers and lecturers more they are all so lovely
They have been helpful with the support they have given, there have also been lots of well run clubs and activities to get involved in. It is also in the center of Sheffield, aka a great location.
Enjoy my University alot . Especially the little society events
Except International experience team every department is good .
Pretty good uni, never used or been to student union so cant really review it.
Sheffield hallam has facilitated my master degree to a great standard and has supported me throughout my degree
I want lab sessions recorded ..coz assignments are always on the lab sessions and sometimes people can't clear out all the things in lab ..so if u record that one it will help us to watch it again and again and understand it very well
Again really good, easy to join clubs and societies and everyone is welcome and friendly !!
It’s got good courses and great staff
Sheffield Hallam University is a cool university ever in my life with a full of diversity atmosphere that you could not find in any other place.
Really good uni, facilities are well maintained, the library is good.
Good communal social areas where you can study, have a break or chat with your friends.
Career support services should help us a lot including part time professional jobs.
Overall experience has been good, there are lots of resources available for you to use and tutors put in effort to help you. Although not much going on at student union.
Great uni lots of clubs and activities and a great nightlife
I’ve loved my time at Hallam so far! Their is always events going on and lots to do if you’re a student who likes to get themselves out there and involved. The nightlife is amazing and the uni itself is well organised. The tutors I’ve had are all amazing and do their very best to make sure you succeed, they’re very warm hearted and understandable. My only complaint is the fact I’ve had a full month online due to strikes, I’d much prefer to be in lesson although I do understand the reasoning behind them.
Good facilities and the wifi works most of the time
The university itself id recommend, although there is room for improvement societies wise
Awesome place and very polite and helping staff
I have my good time in Sheffield Hallam University. Everything is good
Yeah don’t come here biggest regret of my life
SHU is a great university to study at and I'm really pleased I was granted an offer to study here.
City campus at Sheffield Hallam is really accessible and in such a good location, student support at the uni is good, career/volunteering/placement opportunities etc. are great!
All are very good, helpful lecturers and friendly study environment, I just wish the library can be more bigger and also to a better ratio of foreign ethnicity / nationality to encourage more diverse cultural exposure and learning.
good service while I have no time to enjoy
Good university to study with variety of activities
all study spaces are really nice to work at and are always avaliable
The people are very nice and friendly.
Good service is served and efficiently work from admin
The experience depends on if you go to city or collegiate campus, if you go to collegiate, it is quite different to city life
Very good experience with university. Only one con with career connect handshake staff. Not so friendly and helpful staff.
Overall 5/10 wouldn’t really recommend this uni
Awful uni facilities but good societies and people
Everything is really Good and pleasant am really enjoying my experience
Westbar House is a great accommodation. The rooms are designed we'll and is substantial for a living. The property manager Simon is so friendly and has a solution for everything. He take that extra edge to help and never said no for anything. He is a stress buster at the accommodation, without him my living at the accommodation wouldn't have been this easy. The accommodation is quite well maintained and has all the essential facilities. If I could continue to live in here, I would have. There is nothing to complain or point out. Everything here is made easy and trouble-free to live.
Good university , wifi is also good
Sheffield Hallam has been great so far, plenty to get involved in and good support from most tutors!
Good university and range of activies
nice place to study, supporting lecturers, helpful offers to widen your academical horizon (skills center, academic adviser, student adviser...)
Good campus with lots of space, spread out over the city but all within walking distance of each other and the city centre.
Big campus easy to navigate Staff are always happy to help with any issues
Sheffield Hallam is a great university, I am on the city campus and it’s a safe, exciting environment with lovely staff and teaching experience
So far my time at Sheffield Hallam has been amazing and I have met wonderful people.
Overall a very enjoyable environment to study.
Students union is small and sometimes not very busy. Buildings may be hard to find but there’s always people to help
Good facilities and lecture classrooms and facilities
great university and great staff
A very good university. Happy to attend.
Amazing university could not find a fault
Would recommend to a friend for first year
Would recommend the university to somebody looking for a good degree and balance of social life
Would recommend my course for someone wanting to go into social work
Great facilities, the clubs, and societies have plenty of events going on and are open with their advertisements so there is a wealth of information as to what is going on. I haven't had much experience with the careers service yet but there has definitely been support available. Internet is fine, difficult to know which one to connect to though.
Highly recommend, academics very helpful and friendly
Hallam Collegiate Campus is such a lovely place to be and explore. Lots to do and so many exciting upcomings. It's a delight to learn here.
very good uni to study law at in sheffield
Great uni, love it here and my course
Made a lot of new friends has been a great experience during my course

Enjoying my course. All staff and lectures are approachable and friendly.

Wide range of people here, the clubs/societies are very good and the student union is very active.
The university is always keeping students informed with new information by sending regular emails.
Great uni, lecturers are friendly and easy to contact
I love sheffield super super，because everything here is beyond the imagination，nice accommodation and brilliant university
Clean and nice staff however not much communication about the union or university events
Not much to complain. The event could be more interesting to get more people.
Sheffield Hallam is a good university to study at. I do acting and performance at Hallam and it’s a great course.
Very good university with up to date technology
Good university facilities. Library is very useful and open 24/7
Very good, staff are always willing to help and are very kind
For an Erasmus Student as I am is perfect. They made a lot of activities for us to know people and the country.
Great staff good materials not too keen on how all reading is online
Just a good place innit, nowt bad to say really
Yeah I don’t think I can get a chance lol but I’m still not sure how long I would be able but if you don’t need it I’ll be fine lol I have got to go get it lol I don’t know if anyone wants me lol I think it’s a big thing to say but it’s like that
social atmosphere and good facilities
Great university, great staff on my course and everyone is happy to help you.
I like the service and they are doing good
Good teaching staff but the university have been generally unorganised with COVID.
Students union seems a bit pointless, also can be quite hard to find the rooms and the lifts in Owen are super annoying
Amazing, loving my stay at elements
Great service and lovely canpus
The university has been very supportive of my course and future career options with lots of career fairs and 1-1 mentoring and help. The well-being support is also incrdibke
Nice clean campus easy to find your way around
great university with lots of societies
pretty good would rather be in person more
Sheffield Hallam university is great and are able to get support which good for the students.
Lovely campus and the faculty is very experienced.. I had beautiful time and learned lot of the things.
Good looking facilities and friendly staff

i really love the university is very opened and modern
Good campus good teachers very nice things
Nice university, very interesting classes
Nice uni, it is safe and good. I am pretty sure it will be better when the covid restrictions goes away
I love studying there, the people are welcoming
Yes very good I look oe the place all is 5 stars I'm glad that I stay here
SHU collegiate campus- OT. The staff are wonderful, very helpful and understanding.
Poor communication regarding sports and clubs
Good so far Everything is explained
there are so many opportunities for so many incredible things! the common room is such a cool way to socialise with people from different blocks and courses that you wouldn’t normally see. the benches in the courtyard have been used so regularly just for people socialising before going out to clubs or even to meet up to walk to uni
Not been here long but the tutors have been kind, understanding and supportive.
Very good uni for health and social care courses
Good student support and there are many activities that I can join and there are Academic English scheme that most international student can learn for free both online and face to face every week
About to go into third year, have enjoyed my experience so far. Amazing library and resources, lovely food in the campus and student union, loads of fun
SHU is an uncoordinated mess with no respect for it's students or education. In my final year my dissertation supervisor told me to make up data, also my course leader was supposed to be a temp.
Loved my time at Hallam. I'm now staying on to do a Masters I enjoyed my time there so much!
1st year Covid student, very hard to provide a review
Good school and amazing facilities
Worked well online this year and provided great opportunities towards the end of the year to meet others due to covid having a huge impact.
because of covid i didnt get the best experience but i enjoyed what i could and was grateful to have met each member of staff i got to know
This course started off really well until lockdown hit and every went down hill. My placement experience in third year was the worst experience I’ve ever had in my life. I do not wish it on my worst enemy. While Hallam has offered me an additional placement, this means my graduation is delayed. I can’t say I received much support from the tutors when I raised my concerns. I found the year leader in third year to be unsupportive and rude. If I could turn the clock back to 2018, I’d never apply for this course at Sheffield Hallam. Student satisfaction isn’t their priority; staying in schools good books is so that they can bag as many placements as possible for students while disregarding the disgraceful experience some students might experience at certain they allocate trainees to
Amazing. Loved my time at Hallam! Staff are amazing. Well-being service is so good
