Professional bodies involved
Many of Sheffield Hallam University’s courses are developed with – and approved by – professional bodies, which often make them a direct route to personal accreditation or membership of that body. It runs masters courses in association with major companies including Macromedia, Sun Microsystems and Oracle.
The university has 2 modern campuses with excellent facilities and some of the most advanced teaching and facilities in the country, with more than £100 million invested over the last 10 years. It has a wide range of food outlets which offer Halal and vegetarian meals, world-class sport and leisure facilities and a lively and active Students’ Union.
A multifaith centre provides information about religious groups in the university and city. Both campuses at Sheffield Hallam University offer Muslim prayer rooms for Brothers and Sisters and there is space for all prayer, worship and meditation.
Like Yorkshire’s other cities, Sheffield has an industrial past. It was famous for its steel and metal working and is still recognised for its fine cutlery, some of which is displayed in the fabulous Millennium Galleries, just a short walk from the city centre campus.
Sheffield is located in the centre of the UK in Yorkshire and has excellent transport links to all major cities and airports – it’s only two hours by train from London and Manchester is the nearest international airport.
Sheffield is one of the greenest cities in Europe and one third of the city lies within the beautiful countryside of the Peak District National Park.
