Sheffield is always a popular choice with students. There are more than 25,000 of them enjoying life in the lively and friendly northern city, and many of them get involved in the union, or the wealth of societies and activities the university boasts. The student media is especially well thought of.
University buildings are clustered close together about a mile to the west of the city centre, where you can find all the shops, bars and pubs you could desire: the clubbing here is particularly good!
Sheffield has a strong academic reputation, and this combined with the lively and positive atmosphere have enabled the University to achieve an overall satisfaction score of 90% for the second year running in the latest National Student Survey.
Sheffield is a busy town located centrally in England, therefore offering good links to other parts of the UK. As a campus based University there are lots of facilities in close proximity to lecture theatres. Sheffield’s highly successful student union is currently being extended, creating more space and top-class facilities for students, staff and visitors in a single building. Work is expected to be completed in September 2013.
