Excellence in study
Anonymous rated 5 out of 5 stars

Nice university offering a wide variety of courses. Excellent support from course supervisors

Adventure never stops!
Anonymous rated 3 out of 5 stars

I, overall, enjoyed being a student at Sheffield Hallam University. I have received the support I needed and asked for but, as an adventurous person, I would not like to limit myself to study only in one country.

Triumph in the face of adversity
Anonymous rated 4 out of 5 stars

The study experience was affected by the global covid-19 pandemic. However, SHU provided the necessary support to enable students to achieve academic excellence.
