About Sheffield Hallam University

Sheffield Hallam University (SHU) is one of the UK's most progressive and innovative universities. It was founded in 1843 as Sheffield School of Design, it gained the university status in 1992 and became Sheffield Hallam University. It is a higher education institution located in South Yorkshire, with two sites in Sheffield. SHU prides itself on making a difference - to the students, staff and to the businesses SHU works with. Research and business ideas, alongside SHU's sought after graduates, contribute to the economic and social development of both the region and to the UK as a whole.

SHU is organized by four faculties, which are the Faculty of Arts, Computing, Engineering and Sciences, the Faculty of Development and Society, the Faculty of Health and Wellbeing, and the Sheffield Business School. It is UK's fourth largest university, it has over 572 courses, 33,000 students, and 4,360 staff. Thousands of graduates still live in Sheffield, and around half of our graduates each year enter employment or further study in Yorkshire and the Humber.
