GO Universities in Sheffield

Universities in Sheffield With a combined student total of more than 45,000, Sheffield’s universities have a lot to offer anyone looking to further their education.

Both Sheffield Hallam [map] and the University of Sheffield [map] are leading higher education establishments with great reputations that help to attract the vast numbers of students to the city.

Although its roots go back to the early 1800s, the University of Sheffield was founded in 1905 when three higher education establishments merged. Since its creation the university has steadily grown to offer students from 116 countries courses from seven different faculties - Medicine, Law, Architectural Studies, Engineering, Arts, Pure Science and Social Sciences.

The university also boasts associations with six noble prize winners since 1945 and can name some notable British figures amongst their alumni including politician David Blunkett, comedian Eddie Izzard, film director Stephen Daldry and astronaut Helen Sharman.

Meanwhile in the south west of the city, Sheffield Hallam is forging a reputation as an innovative and progressive UK university. It was one of the first polytechnics in the country to become a university in 1992 and is now counted as one of the best modern universities in the country.

Sheffield Hallam offers more than 650 courses across its ten ‘schools’ that include Business and Finance, Computing and Management Sciences, Education, and Sport and Leisure Management. It also has excellent research facilities and a comprehensive e-learning program.

Although these universities come from different academic backgrounds, students at these institutions intermingle regularly at the many student-oriented attractions. There’s also an annual varsity event where the two universities compete in around 30 different sports.

The other notable further education establishment in the city is Sheffield College [map]. Combining three independent colleges across the city, the college has become one of Europe’s largest further education colleges.
