I am doing one year course, so there is no any internship opportunity for student read full review
It's a small campus where staff and students get to know and support each other. I feel a strong sense of community and belonging here. read full review
I would strongly advise prospective students to choose a "public university", not a private one. The Uni of Law does not care about its students whatsoever. I have experienced a lot of stress trying to deal with the incompetence and lack of support from the so called "university". They currently charge £150.00 PER resit on top of tuition fees. They did temporarily remove these resit fees during lockdown, but have now reinstated them. They are a for-profit business. There primary focus is to get as many students as possible, to make as much money as possible. You receive conflicting information from different people within the same department and they even go so far to say you have failed an exam, when in fact you have confirmation that you did not. What is worse is that they will keep telling you that you need to resit when you do not. They do not care. They also say that if you complain about the university you will get kicked off the course. read full review
The learning modules and facilities are great! read full review
The location and building of campus is mesmerising! read full review
It is located in the heart of the city and has very friendly warm staff. Student engaging activities are carried out by the university almost every week. Specifically for my course there are huge seminar halls and well equipped labs for all the practical work. read full review
Sheffield Hallam University is a life-changer for me, being a student here made me see education from another point of view, it totally changed my orientation about university life being difficult and this is because I got everything I needed with ease. The university has everything in place and you don’t have to worry about getting it right or wrong, they are readily available to meet me at the point of my needs. I am definitely recommending this school to everyone. You will love it here! read full review

Physics PhD


Iain - April 2022

Great location, pretty campus. The people are generally nice and it is not crowded. It feels safe in Guildford. They have put in new rest and social spaces which has helped reduce the amount of people in the library.

Sometimes lecture rooms can be too hot/stuffy. There are a lack of activities to do outside of uni, the town could do with more development. read full review
Sheffield, the greenest city in the UK, is a great place to study. Sheffield is open and the people are warm. It can be a bit windy, but once you learn to dress for the weather then you're good to go. The hills can be a challenge too when you're hiking, but there's always a bus/tram/train around the corner, so getting around is a breeze. There are loads of activities to fill your time too, and the student population is huge.

The only down side may be the slight difficulty in securing family sized accommodation. read full review
