“My SHU”

published 30/07/2007

ProFriendly helpful, new feeling, good place to live

ConsSome of the older buildings

Sheffield was not a place that I had visited in my whole life until the day when I climbed in the car with my dad to visit my second choice university, Sheffield Hallam. I remember as we drove up and down the one way systems of Sheffield looking everywhere for a sign on the university, Collegiete...

I'm from Sheffield, have always lived here - and so should definitely have gone to another city for university! This particular 'mistake' however turned out to be one of the best I have ever made. Sheffield Hallam's main 'City' campus is situated right in the heart of the city, 2 minutes walk...

I've just finished my first year at sheffield hallam university and I loved every minute of it. Sheffield Hallam is split into 3 campus's with the main campus being in the city centre. Most of the business course's being there, the law, healthcare and childcare being at the collegiate campus and...

“SHU shines!”

published 10/07/2000

Prolocation, staff, modern buildings

Consthe "learning centre" is skimpy on books

Sheffield Hallam University is perhaps the most impressive of the former Polytechnic universities. Its tradition of offering vocational courses, added to the fact that the main campus is situated a few minutes walk away from the city centre and train station, makes it an ideal place to study part...

ProGreat night life and really friendly people

ConsBuilt on hills

When filling out your UCAS form there are many things to be considered, but before you even think about any other universities check out Sheffield Hallam. As soon as I first visited on the open day I immediately fell in love, not only with the vibarent atmostsphere and frendly people but also the...

Like most other reviews I've read, I can also say that Sheffield Hallam University was not originally my first choice university. I had originally chosen UWIC (Cardiff, Wales) and MMU (Manchester) as my first and insurance offers, but after taking a trip to view each of them I immediately fell in...

Having just graduated in Film from "the art campus up the road from the actual University!". I am living proof that Arts students do actually do some work. I have read the other reviews of SHU which have all been very informative, but have all been from ex-students from computing backgrounds or...

“Useful Info..”

published 19/07/2000

ProGood IT/business courses

ConsBit busy sometimes, and arts courses are poor

On the IT courses (under the odd banner of Computing and Management Department) there is a strong bias towards placements and business skills which I believe is very useful. The sandwich placement scheme basically runs in the third year of a lot of the technical degrees at SHU and makes degrees...

“SHU - Highly Recommended!!!”

ConsNot so high in the Times 100 league table

I have studied at Sheffield Hallam University for 5 years, and enjoyed every year. The facilities are excellent, there are many PC's around each campus (both Collegiate Cresent and City). Until recently, some locations has old and dated machines, but has since improved dramtactically with the...

My experience may only be relevant to the IT courses, and any sort of non standard routes (year out, part time study etc...) but either way it hasn't been a good experience and shouldn't reflect well on the university. Also please note that unlike many of the reviews here I can actually compare...

“Psychology and Life at SHU”

published 04/12/2000

ProGreat people.

ConsIt's very hilly!

If you're thinking of studying at Sheffield Hallam University or simply in Sheffield itself, I would without a shadow of a doubt, recommend it. I have studied psychology at SHU for three years now and I have to say the course has been great and the staff are very helpful too. The course is nicely...

“Come to SHU”

published 27/01/2001

ProFriendly, lots of stuff to do

ConsBit business orientated

I am in my last year of studying psychology and have a great time, the staff are excellent and were recognised as being so after an inspection in 1998. I am based at the leafy Collegiate Crescent site which I really like but it is built on a hill! You get the feeling that the university wants to...
